Spring has officially started and that means festival season is here. Who is headed to Coachella this April? Last year, I showed you how to DIY a no-sew festival inspired maxi dress. Today’s beaded pendant necklace is also inspired by festival fashion. I had found these gorgeous beaded earrings at Urban Outfitters but never got a chance to wear them, this DIY will turn them into a fun boho chic necklace perfect for festivals or those spring/summer outfits.

Let’s get started, here’s what you’ll need:

  • Beaded Pendants (or pair of beaded hoop earrings)
  • Two 20cm Medium Size Chain Pieces
  • Jump Rings & Clasp
  • Jewelry Pliers


Step 1: Using the jewelry pliers, remove the latch-back portion of the earring that goes through the ear piercing.

Step 2: Attach the two hoops together using jump rings and pliers. Mine did not need jump rings since the earrings already had wire hooks at the end.

Step 3: Connect each end of the top hoop earring with a piece of 20cm chain using jump rings.

Step 4: Add a clasp to the loose end of one chain and jump ring to the loose end of the second chain.

You are done and ready to accessorize any festival outfit! Since the chain on the necklace is long and the pendant hangs low, it is also perfect for day-to-day casual looks as well. You can experiment with different color beads, chain sizes and pendant shapes. If you want to see how I included it in my outfits, follow along on Instagram. Happy Spring and stay HIGH on DIY!
