DIY- Anthropologie Inspired Necklace

Last week I received a copy of the Anthropologie Issue 12, 2011. I was inspired by a necklace on page 4. I already had some of the pieces so I went to work. Here is my version.

What you'll need:
Looping round nose pliers
Nipper or wire cutter
Slab style Stone
about 2 inches of wire- I used 18 gauge craft wire
2 Jump Rings
Lobster Clasp

Using your loop round nose pliers make a loop.
Add two strands of chain. The inspiration photo has two chains, so that is what I chose to do. You can add one only if you would like.
Close the loop by wrapping the other end around the loop. I added two loops.
Thread wire through the bead.
Continue by repeating the steps above to complete.
Add the clasp using your two jump rings and your finished!
Let me know what you think. What have you been inspired by lately?
