How To Convert Your Existing Necklace Into An Earring-Necklace

Start by taking your favorite or in this case a "clearance rack find" necklace that you can use to convert into your very own earring-necklace.  This piece of jewelry is the coolest piece of jewelry I've seen in a while.  Talk about convienence...this is it!

Start by removing the earrings from the card.  Next you are going to open the jump ring on the earring and remove the large earring loop.  Save the jump ring because you are going to use this jump ring to connect the necklace to the fish hook earring finding.

Now, remove the chains from the large necklace loop.  As you notice in this photo, the chains are connected to the large loop through a large jump ring.  Simply open the jump ring and remove the chains from the large loop, but keeping them on the jump ring. Be sure to close the jump ring so your chains don't slip off.

In this photo the large necklace loops have been removed and the jump rings have been closed keeping all the chains together, ready to be attached to the fish hook earring finding.

Now you can see that the small jump ring from the earring is connected to the large jump ring from the necklace.  This will merge the necklace to the earring.  Repeat this procedure on both sides of the necklace.

This photo shows both of the fish hook earring findings connected to the necklace on both sides.  The necklace has now been converted to an earring-necklace.  For me this earring-necklace has too many chains.  I am going to eliminated a couple of the chain so that they are not right up under my chin.

Here you see I have removed the two upper rows of the earring-necklace.  I just cut the two extra rows from the necklace using wire cutters.  As you can see the necklace now looks more "user" friendly.  I don't have to contend with the two smaller rows which would end up right under my chin...not good!  I must say that this is one of my favorite projects to do.  I hope this project inspires you to tackle a necklace in your jewelry box or inspire you to buy that "ugly" necklace that is in a serious need of a makeover.  At any rate...GO FOR IT!  Happy Crafting!
