10 chain necklace

After seeing tons of fashion blogs post about the amazing Givenchy necklace (below left), I was extremely intrigued by the chunky bunch of chains. I’ve always worn chains (below right, taken extremely zoomed in randomly on one random drunken night) but all I have are separate chains of all different thicknesses from all sorts of shops (club monaco, vintage, random etc), some with random charms.

So I decided I would make my own version of the crazy Givenchy necklace. I headed out with my mom and sha to Bead’s World on 34th St and went chain crazy. I thought it would look best with some thick and some thin chains and also decided to mix different colours: diff. shades of gold, black, dark silver and bronze. The Givenchy version has tons of chunky huge pendants and charms hanging off the chains like big crosses and vintage coins but I decided to take on a subtler route and added small cute little charms that me and sha picked out. Now I know it doesn’t look too amazing in that first photo on the right but I swear it looks better with a full outfit, I’ll post a photo soon =D

Of course nothing beats Givenchy:

  1. Omggg I’m totally totally totally loving this statement necklace DIY!! I’ve been looking all over for ages for some simple chains to layer like that but aghhh why doesn’t s’pore ever have some place like Bead’s World?!! =((

    I love how you threw in those adorable little charms too XD Mixing gold, silver/gray chains altogether is just awesome since it goes with practically everything! Ahhh completely lusting after that now…

    (ahaha don’t mind me, just trawling through your archives!)
    (btw is it alright with you if I use photos from this post for a post in my blog? am planning on raving about this incredible chain necklace if that’s ok with you!)
