How to Upcycle a Chain Necklace Into a Headpiece


If you're looking for upcycled jewelry ideas that won't take too much time or effort, you'll enjoy this tutorial from Savannah Starr. Learn how to upcycle a chain necklace into a headpiece and bring new life to your tired, old or broken accessories.

Channel your inner Cleopatra and create a dangly headpiece that will stop people in their tracks. Begin cutting chains to desired lengths - try measuring the piece on your head beforeheand to determine correct placement. Make sure to vary the length of the chains so you get an unexpected look. Attach "chain bangs" to the front of the headpiece using jump rings and pliers. Feel free to add rhinestones and beads to your piece - a little bling can go a long way.
