Step 1
DIY and de-stress at the same time with our Aromatherapy Tree Necklace! We’ll show you how to add beads and a charm to this pretty diffuser locket, then a few drops of your favorite essential oils. Take a look at our instructions below, then make it!   Step 1 First, remove the chain from your diffuser necklace and cut it at its midpoint. Set the chain and locket aside until Step 4. Step 2 Next, you’ll make bead links for your necklace. To make the first link, thread a bead onto an eye pin, then form a simple wire loop above the bead. Repeat to make 15 more links using a mix of amazonite and lava beads. TIP: To form a simple wire loop, bend the eye pin wire to a 90° angle just above the bead. Grasp the end of the wire between the jaws of a pair of round nose pliers, about 3/8"-½" from the bend. Rotate the pliers toward you, keeping a firm grip on the wire until a small loop is formed. If you have excess wire, just trim it away. Step 3 Once you have all your links made, you’ll need to connect them into strands. Use your pliers to slightly open one loop at the end of your first bead link. Slide one of the loops of your second bead link onto the open loop and then close it again. Continue connecting the links to make two strands with eight bead links each. Step 4 Use a jump ring to attach one end of a bead link strand to the cut end of one side of your chain. Repeat to attach the end of the second strand to the cut end on the other side of your chain. TIP: To open and close a jump ring, simply grasp the jump ring on both sides with chain nose pliers and twist the ring open, from side to side. Never pull the jump ring open, since this can distort its circular shape. Step 5 Next, use jump rings to connect the free end of each bead link strand to the locket’s top loop. When you’re done, you can set this long necklace aside. TIP: Want your necklace to be longer or shorter? It’s easy to adjust its length! Just add more bead links for a longer necklace or remove a few to shorten it. Step 6 Now it’s time to make the shorter, layered necklace. To start, make one bead link from an amazonite bead and a second link from a lava bead. Attach the two together, just as you did in Step 3. Step 7 Use your pliers to slightly open the loop at one end, slide on your bar word charm, then close the loop again. Add a jump ring to the opposite end of this short strand of bead links. Step 8 Measure and cut a 21" piece of chain from your spool. Slide on the bead link strand’s jump ring. Step 9 At one end of this chain, add a jump ring. At the other, add a lobster clasp with its own jump ring. Step 10 Almost there! Now, just follow your essential oil’s packaging instructions to apply the oil inside your locket.
