DIY // Gold Body Chain

So I was scrolling through Instagram and saw this beautiful picture on Neiman Marcus's feed. It featured a gold body chain and I knew I needed one STAT.

However, there was no way I wanted to pay $100+ for the body chain. So DIY it is!
I used a total of (3) necklaces, but you can do it with just (2). I added the third, an old necklace I've had for years, for a little extra dazzle.

This isn't the shirt I would choose to wear it with, but you get the picture.

Total Amount Spent: $13.60 (on 2 necklaces from Forever21)
Time Spent: 30 minutes - 1 hour

Final Product:

Lets Begin!

Step 1:
Remove extenders on both necklaces.

Step 2:
Remove clasp on ONE necklace.
Please around neck and determine where you want it to sit on your body.

Step 3:
Join together using pliers.
Determine how long you want your single drop to be.

Step 4:
Remove extra links (save these) and align other necklace as shown.

Step 5:
Attach necklace to drop.
Use clasp to connect around waist. (If you need more waist room, this is where I would add the extra links)

Step 6:

Step 7:
For a little extra pizzaz, I used on old necklace.

Step 8:
Attach as follows & Adjust.

All Done :) 
I adjusted it in the back to have a more sweeping motion.

If you have any questions, let me know :)
