Spool Pendant & Beaded Chain

Supplies Needed:

  • Chain, I bought mine from Amazon and got the beaded chain with pearls
  • 2 Jump rings
  • Clasp, I used a toggle clasp
  • Wire Cutters
  • Book page
  • Scissors
  • Mod podge
  • Brush
  • 16 gauge wire
  • Small Wooden Spool


I have been looking for a unique necklace to wear, but have not been able to find what I wanted. So I decided to make one! I wanted a very long necklace so you may decide to make yours shorter if you decide to make this.

To measure out the chain I simply pulled some of the chain from the spool and wrapped it around my neck and cut it with the wire cutters when it was the length I wanted.

I used a wood spool for the pendant that I got from Amazon, but this is a perfect way to repurpose spools that you have left over from other crafts as well. I used the 16 gauge wire to secure the bottom of the spool and make a hanger at the top. I started at the bottom and made a spiral with the wire and then wrapped the end of the wire around the loops to secure them. Then I made circles with the wire for the hanger at the top and secured it with the end of the wire by wrapping it around the circles.

I decoupaged a book page to the spool. I love using book pages in my crafts!! I marked the length of the inner part of the spool on the page and trimmed it with scissors. I then added mod podge to the wood spool and put the book page on top of it and also brushed mod podge on top of the page.

I used jump rings to attach the clasp to the chain. To do this you can use two needle nose pliers to open the ring and put the chain and clasp on it and then close it. You do this for both ends.

Because the hanger on the pendant is so big you can put it on the chain before or after you attached the clasp.
