We’re fans of quick and easy projects that are well constructed and built to last. This DIY Flapper Necklace fits the bill. You can use any beads you have on hand, the key is spacing them with chain to create a lovely layered look. Wrap this around your neck multiple times, or leave it long. Whatever you do, you’re sure to be the bee’s knees.
