Crafting A Custom Necklace with Martha Stewart Jewelry

Craft Custom Necklace Martha Stewart
 
This is a sponsored post from Martha Stewart Crafts, Plaid, and Blueprint Social.  I received supplies and materials to create a custom piece of jewelry.  Jewelry design, text, and opinions are my own.

When I had the opportunity to try out  the new Martha Stewart Jewelry line, I said YES!  I felt like Ralphie in A Christmas Story waiting for his Little Orphan Annie Secret Decoder Ring.  Finally the box of supplies came to my door.  I rushed to open it and it was just like Christmas!  So many fun materials and supplies!  Everything needed to make beautiful and customized jewelry.  Martha Stewart has so many jewelry findings, chains, charms, rhinestones, settings, molds, and paints that the possibilities of what you can create are endless!  Martha Stewart also has many specialized tools to help you as you're creating your masterpiece.

I really enjoyed working with this line of products.  The jewelry settings are so pretty and there are so many to choose from.  The tools made working with jewelry findings easy.  The pliers and the silicone work mat are must haves!  The silicone work mat is multifunctional.  Not only does it prevent beads and other small items from rolling away, it can also be used as a pallet for mixing paint and working with clay.

Everything is available at Michael's!

These are the materials I used to make the necklace:
  • Martha Stewart silver chains
  • Martha Stewart butterfly charms
  • Martha Stewart filigree settings
  • Martha Stewart blue cabochon rose
  • Martha Stewart Czech beads in green and grey
  • Martha Stewart pliers
  • Martha Stewart silicon work mat
  • head pins
  • eye pins
Step 1
Divide the chain into three pieces.

Step 2
Make connections for the beads with eye pins.

Use the round bending pliers to bend the wire of the eye pin.

They'll look like this when finished.

Step 3
Use jump rings to connect all the pieces together.

Step 4
Next, add beads to the chain.
Thread the bead onto a head pin.
Bend the wire of the head pin to make a loop.

Connect the beads to the chain with jump rings.

Step 5
Using jewelry glue, glue the cabochon rose onto the filigree setting.

  The last step is wear your jewelry and expect to get many compliments on your beautiful creation!
