For the holiday season, the more sparkles the better! In this DIY, we will create a crystal rhinestone and safety-pin necklace that you can add to any of your casual or party outfits for the holidays. It’s super quick and easy to make, so you can even give it out as presents. Let’s get started!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Sew-On Crystal Rhinestones (3 rectangles and 12 ovals)
  • Gold Chain (2 x 20cm pieces)
  • 8 Gold Jumpring & a Clasp
  • 5 Gold Safety-Pins
  • Jewelry Pliers


Step 1: Pick two of the safety-pins and bead 3 oval rhinestones on each one of them. Let’s call it Set A. On the remaining 3 safety-pins, bead the rhinestones in this order: oval – rectangle – oval. Let’s call this Set B.

Step 2: Use the jewelry pliers and jump rings to connect the safety-pins. Keep one safety-pin from Set B in the center and connect it on each side to safety-pins from Set A. Then follow up on each side with the remaining two safety-pins from Set B.

Step 3: Attach a jump ring on one end of the first 20 cm chain piece and add the clasp on one end of the second chain piece using a jump ring.

Step 4: Connect the other ends of the chain pieces to the last safety-pins on each sides using the pliers and jump rings.

And voilà, you are done! You can DIY this with different color rhinestones or paint the rhinestone with color nail polish to get another fun effect or DIY with silver safety-pins.


Have a Happy & Sparkly Holiday Season! Be sure to keep up with my behind the scenes on Instagram and inspiration collections on Pinterest!
