The Beach Bubble Necklace {DIY}

the beach bubble necklace1

By now, you’re probably aware of my love of simple, natural jewelry, and of course anything turquoise.  So naturally, I was in love when I discovered I could create the Beach Bubble Ring by up-cycling old jewelry I had laying around the house.  Feeling inspired by the warm weather ahead, and armed with more broken old jewelry, I decided to create simple and fabulous Up-cycled Beach Bubble Necklace.


The Up-Cycled Beach Bubble Necklace {DIY}

step 1 p For this necklace, you will need a thin necklace chain, a few inches of 20 gauge silver wire, a medium size bead of your choice (I used a tumbled turquoise bead), and a hammered silver circle (this piece is optional)

step 2 p

Insert a silver finding into the bead, use jewelry pliers to secure it with a loop at the top.  Using the silver wire, secure it onto the finding, then simply wrap it around the top of the bead.  Slide your necklace chain through the loop you made with the finding and enjoy your new up-cycled necklace!

  1. I have enjoyed your blog alot. I have received great ideas from you that are inexpensive and easy to do.

    I pinned your blog to my pinterest page. That’s how much I enjoy visiting here. :)))

  2. This is gorgeous! I love to reuse my old jewelry in new ways and this is such a simple tutorial with a beautiful result. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I was linked here from pinterest, this is too cute! Where do you get the beads? and the silver accessories? I’m excited to try but nervous too.

    1. Tiffany,

      I actually had the bead from an old piece of jewelry I cut apart, but you can go to any craft store and pick up ones that are similar. The silver is just wire that I purchased from the craft store. Don’t be nervous, it’s fun to experiment, just keep trying until you get a result you’re happy with!
