DIY Bombshell Statement Necklace!

   DIY Bombshell Statement Necklace!
 This necklace is a rhinestone sparkly eye catcher!
I love the tear drop dangles!
Beadmixer is an amazing website resource for amazing jewelry pieces!
They sent me the tear drops, settings, and eye pins for this project.
 And...can you believe it's a diy project!??

Here's the supplies you need:
3: 25x18mm AB Crystal Pear Rhinestones (sold individually)
6: 18x13mm AB Crystal Pear Rhinestones (sold in 4)
3: 25x18mm Pear Prong Settings (sold in 4)
6: 18x13mm Pear Prong Settings with 2 loops (sold in 10)
2 headpins
6 Eyepins
8 AB crystal beads (I already had these...but Beadmixer has some similar)
18 Jump rings
Hook and Eye Closure
Silver Chain
 (these come in 5 cm pieces, but you can hook them together to make desired length)
Jewelry pliers
 So, as long as you already have the jewelry pliers...but had to purchase everything else...
You are looking at about $35 including shipping to get everything!
And...you'd have some things left over too!
The best part is you can customize this exactly how you want...
Here's how I want:

You start by setting all your rhinestones into the prong settings.
Set in evenly.
Press between fingers
Use pliers to gently bend the prongs over the gem...while still holding it with fingers
(I had to snap a picture)
Easy, repeat for each rhinestone.
 Now set 2 of the beads with eye pins and loop them on to the
 2 pear shaped tear drops on the sides.
Put eye pins in the other 6 beads and make a loop on the other side as well.
Lay them out in the desired pattern.
 Use jump rings to connect the dangles.
Connect 2 beads with 3 jump rings.
Then connect a dangle drop onto the center of those 3 jump rings
Repeat until the entire necklace is connected.
Connect jump rings to the chain and fit to desired length.
Hook on hook and eye closure
 And Viola!  Easy as that!
 I guarantee that people will be asking where you bought it!
You can tell them you made it!  :)
 I love making jewelry!
This was my first time setting rhinestones and I love it!
It felt a little daunting at first, but it's simple enough!
What do you think...
How would you design your bombshell statement necklace?
