About This Class

Learn how to spot trends and create them on our own, in your personal style and for your budget - that’s the skill behind DIY. Leave this class with an on-trend, ready-to-wear necklace of your own creation!

I started I Spy DIY after working at InStyle Magazine in NYC for over 5 years. Spending that much time with some of the most beautiful fashion I’d ever seen, I taught myself how to turn trends I loved intro projects I could afford. Since then, my work has been featured in Elle, Lucky and CNN. My first book - I Spy DIY Style - was released this past April and I’m now writing a monthly DIY column for InStyle. I learned how to DIY by turning trends into projects which is why I’m excited to help you do the same. 

In this class we’ll cover jewelry-making: start with a bracelet and work your way up to a multi-layer necklace.

Here are the supplies you'll need and some stores where you can purchase them:


  • 1 yard 10mm silver chain
  • 1 yard 12mm silver chain
  • 1 ft rhinestone chain
  • Howlite beads (turquoise or any color) (24 units)
  • Nylon Thread (one or two colors)
  • 15 Jump rings
  • 2 Lobster Clasp
  • Jewelry Monofilament clear cord .25mm
  • Jewelry Pliers
  • 1 ft Faux Suede Cord 3mm
  • 1 Yard thin black ribbon
