a color block necklace is my fave

color block necklace

Since I haven’t dabbled in jewelry making since Girl Scouts and friendship bracelets, I decided I better keep it simple when presented with a box of supplies from the new Martha Stewart Crafts Jewelry line. So today I present the three-step color block necklace (for the beginner set).

color block necklace

– Martha Stewart Crafts silver setting
– 2 colors of paint (I used acrylic but would suggest jewelry gloss or enamel for more permanent results)
– paint brush
– necklace chain
– jump ring
– clasp

Step one: Flip the setting to the back side and paint top half with one of your paint colors. Let dry. Then paint the bottom half with the other color. You can go light or heavy with the paint. I let a little silver peek through.

Step two: Open up jump ring with pliers and attach to the setting.

Step three: Cut chain to length and attach clasp. String through the jump ring and it’s ready to wear.
