DIY Earring Collar Chain

Around January this year, I came across this image on Pinterest and fell in love (ignoring the fact that I am allergic to cats).
Not really seeing them in general stores and the fact that I am a cheapskate anyway, I decided to make one only using earrings and chain! 
Can I also just mention that Mona wore won in Pretty Little Liars so they are out there I guess!

First get your chain, mine I got from an old necklace, and get your pliers or wire cutters. 
The chain needs little holes in so that you can put the earrings through. You can cut the wire to whatever length you want. 
I doubled mine with a smaller bit at the top.
Now just get your earrings and put it through the chain. Yes, that is all you do. 
If you want to, you can glue the chain so the ends connect but what I do is put one earring through both ends of the chain and one earring in a random point of the chain.
You will need to take the earrings out of the chain when you actually put it on the collar but it isn't too much effort. 
I mean, come on. It's better than paying for a specially handmade one on Etsy. 
I always prefer to put the chain behind the collar because it looks better for me but you can always hot glue the chain onto the earring so you only need to put the back on. 
I don't even know if this makes sense but you get the general idea, I hope you do. I'm not just a terrible virtual explainer.

I hope you liked this post and you found collar chains! Yay! Have a very good day and Happy Blogging!
