Georgina Sparks may have been annoying in Gossip Girl but that doesn’t mean I didn’t envy her wardrobe 🙂 Here’s my DIY take on the gold chain necklace she was wearing in Season 5 Episode 15.


What you need:

  • 20 cm gold chain
  • 2 ribbons
  • tigertail
  • 4 crimps
  • black rhinestone chain —> they didn’t have this in my local DIY store so I improvised and used 42 8mm black crystals instead. It’s cheaper this way too 🙂 Rhinestone chain can be pricey!! But if you want an exact match, then buy it from Amazon and use it instead 🙂

Open the last link in the gold chain, join it to the other end of the chain then close with the pliers. You should get a gold chain loop now.

Step 2

Use the crimp to fasten the tiger tail to 1 link in the loop.  (slide the crimp then the link through the wire and double the wire back into the crimp before flattening it.) Thread 21 crystals onto the chain
At the end, use the crimp to fasten the tiger tail around the centre of the ribbon (slide the crimp the then ribbon into the tigertail before doubling back into the crimp and crushing it)
Repeat at the other end.
All done!
