Head jewelry DIY

Hey guys!
I have an exciting do-it-yourself project.
I'm going to show you how I made a piece of head jewelry out of
3 old necklaces. they were broken anyways:

These pictures inspired me:

and my favorite..

To start you'll need :
-3 old necklace-chains. They don't have to look exactly the same. Mine are all different, and I love it)
-a jump ring
-some kind of stone, or anything you want really:)
-something to close the jump ring and to cut the chains

Next you should thread the chains up on the jump ring and close it

Then you have to adjust the length of the chains so that the "sides" will be just a little bit shorter (in my case). Just make sure not to cut them too short! Then you have to tie them together at the back. It doesn't really matter if it doesn't look perfect cause no one will really see it as long as you don't put it on backwards ;)

Last but not least, I glued a pretty little stone in the middle :)

So there you have it! It takes about 5-10 minutes -after you find necklaces-
and then you just have to let the clue dry.

I absolutely love this. Especially the fact that it cost me absolutely nothing!
