Tools and materials:

  • Costume jewelry necklace
  • Jump rings
  • Jewelry pliers
Facemask chain
Measure the chain

To make these awesome chains, I used costume jewelry necklaces. To measure the right length, I put the necklace on and used my thumbs to mark the length I wanted for my new chain.

Next, I used my handy jewelry pliers to pull apart the section I don’t need from the chain.

Add a jump ring

I had a chain extension and I just wanted to use its jump ring. I removed the jump ring from the extension.

Repeat on the other side

I then attached the jump ring onto the end of the newly shortened side of the chain. I repeated the same process on the other side of the chain.

Lastly, and for the easiest step, I opened the rings and attached my mask to the gorgeous, new mask chain.

Shorten the chain

I just loved my first chain so I decided to recreate it using a different necklace. I think it's easier to use a necklace with details that can help act as markers for where to cut and it of course adds to the aesthetic. I cut the chain to the length I wanted for my mask chain.

For this necklace, the jump rings were a little bit too small so I had to add new clasps before I could attach the jump rings to the chain.

  • Yours is prettier but a simple chain for holding your glasses will work too.

    Do you remove the mask from the jump rings to wash it? I'd love to try it but don't want to wash the chain with the mask. Or maybe the jump rings are the same as a lobster claw clasp?
