diy: Triangle Drop Necklace

If you follow me on social media, it’s no secret that triangles are my favorite shape. I love the simplicity of geometric designs, and how shapes can be combined in various ways…especially triangles! There’s something edgy and off beat about them.
This dainty and simple necklace is a great beginner/intermediate project for those of you who are just getting into jewelry making. Loving the simplicity of this piece, and I’m especially adoring the beautiful faceted crystal beads.

Keep reading to check it out:


– Thin chain, at least 16 inches
– 3 eye pins
– Handful of small beads (I used tiny faceted beads)
– 4 jump rings (4mm)
– 1 jump ring (6mm)
– Jewelry clasp
– 3-in-1 jewelry pliers

1) Add 3/4 inch worth of beads onto 1 head pin. Repeat with the remaining 2 head pins, minus 1 bead on each.

2) Trim the ends and create loops with the jewelry pliers.

3) Attach the shorter pins to each side of the longer pin.

4) Join the opposite ends together to complete the triangle. 

5) With 2 of the 4mm jump rings, attach the chain to both sides of the triangle.

6) Attach the clasp and larger jump ring to the other ends.
