Neon beads Necklace

DIY Neon Necklace on What I Wore

Neon Necklace, DIY necklace, DIY neon, Jessica Quirk, Do it YourselfWhatIWore: I’ve seen so many bloggers rock out great neon necklaces or create beautiful DIY baubles, and I’ve been wanting my own version as well. Just last weekend I saw an old wooden beaded necklace and thought to myself - that would be a great place to start!! A quick trip to the craft store and I was on my way!

Before we get started, this project involves paint (potentially messy) and some small tools (sharp!) so be smart and safe!

Supplies:

  • Old beaded necklace (wood works well!)
  • Jewelry Making Wire
  • Rings and Clasps
  • Neon Spray Paint
  • Additional Beads
  • Pliers and Wire cutters

Neon Necklace, DIY necklace, DIY neon, Jessica Quirk, Do it YourselfHow To Make It:

I started by cutting the beads off the original necklace and spray painting them yellow and pink. I probably did 4 light coats of paint, moving the beads after each spray and dry.

The following afternoon, I sanded the beads a bit where the paint was bumpy and used Adam’s suggestion to paint the beads already strung onto some floss. It made the process much easier, so do it that way!

Once everything was dry, I got out my painted beads, store bought beads and wire and just started playing around!

I’ve never been trained at jewelry making, so I just wove the wire around and twisted it to secure. It’s really helpful to raid your own jewelry stash and identify how those necklaces were made. If that’s seems overwhelming, try stringing your beads onto multiple strands and securing them all with an O ring and clasp in back. Play around with it! If you don’t like the result, you can always start over!
