Total Time: 25 minutes

Yield: 1 necklace

Supplies:

  • acrylic gems
  • safety clasp

My son wanted a diamond necklace like mine, here's a kid friendly version. To make this necklace setting, we used just beads and hot glue!

You can make any setting you would like with beads. Then you'll need string, a clasp, and some diamond gems.
