DIY Crystal Bib Necklace

DIY Embellished Bib Necklace

Last time I used PVC plastic when DIYing, I was collaborating with Sara’s Henna and made a Henna’d Bib Necklace. This time I thought I’d go for a more dramatic look and the results were even better than I expected. Taking inspiration from brands such as Swarovski and Shourouk, this DIY is a perfect cheats version of a statement chunky Hollywood-worthy jewel necklace.

What you need:

  • PVC Plastic
  • 5 types of flat-based crystals (I used a mix of blue, matte silver, clear and black)
  • Gunmetal chain – cut into 2 lengths
  • 3 Jump rings
  • 1 Lobster Clasp
  • Contact Adhesive
  • Scissors
  • Bradawl

How to:

  1. Using a marker pen, draw out the below outline of the bib necklace on the PVC and cut it out with a pair of scissors. The bend in the necklace should fit neatly around your neck.Crystal Bib Necklace outline
  2. Using the contact adhesive, glue the flat-based crystals onto the PVC. Mix up the clusters using all the different types of crystals. Leave to dry.Crystal Bib Necklace glued
  3. Using a sharp bradawl, poke two holes in either end of the bib. Hook a jump ring through each hole and attach each to a length of chain.Crystal Bib Necklace details
  4. Attach the remaining two jump rings to the ends of the chains and add the lobster clasp to one of those jump rings.
