I am not a fan of chockers but this dangle beaded one is so easy to make that I may make one for a gift. So very easy and a super great tutorial and you can change out the bead colors.Drop chains are a good fashion statement too. You can make the chains hang more to if you like. I like you can design it yourself. If you like chocker necklaces givethis a shot.

What a unique and pretty necklace. It's very easy to make and doesn't take much in the way of time or materials. The directions are smile and straight forward. Anyone should be able to following them. It wouldn't take much to be able to make a pair of pretty matching earrings.
