DIY ~ Gem Necklace

Hi lovelies!  In keeping with this week's theme of re-imagining and reinventing old jewelry pieces into new ones, I bring you this gem necklace.  I dug this plain necklace out of my stash, it's one I bought years ago because I liked the acrylic hexagons but don't think I've ever worn it.  It just seemed to need a little something more.  Similar to the Tortoise Gem Earrings I posted on Monday, I decided to give it the same treatment!  {Click for the how-to!}

You'll need:

  • An old necklace with flat pieces to it
  • Gems (these are from the dollar store!)
  • E-6000 glue
  • Q-tip & napkin


  • Plan out your design and lay it out. I decided on the pattern shown and chose to do it on both sides of the pieces. 
  • Squeeze glue onto the napkin. Use your Q-tip to pick up some glue and apply it to the back of the stone. 
  • Press firmly into place and repeat for the other pieces on the same side. Let dry thoroughly (a few hours) and flip over and repeat. Let dry overnight.

I love how fun and whimsical this necklace now is, and it's going to be a great layering piece too!  I can't wait to wear it over a plain sweater for that easy, effortless glam look!

Let these DIYs serve as inspiration for you to remake and recreate pieces you already own but no longer use.  I can't wait to see what you make!
