I started with two old necklaces, some chain, string, a locket, and findings. I took the two necklaces apart, saving the pieces that were still good for future projects.
I measured out 33" of chain for the long necklace, and attached a jump ring to one end.
Then I strung on the two pendants, taking care that they would face the right way.
And added a second jump ring with the lobster clasp to finish.
For the second necklace, I used the clasp from the original, and attached the string to the first part with a lark's head knot.
I strung on beads to the halfway point.
I used this cute split ring to hang the locket charm. The thin string won't slip through the cut, like it might with a jump ring!
Then I finished stringing the beads, and tied on the other end of the barrel clasp with many knots.
Ta-da! Two new necklaces!
