DIY: Simple Beaded Necklace Tutorial

Sometimes you’re in a bind and need a quick gift for someone. Sometimes you have some beads and some chain. Sometimes that turns into a present and the day is saved! Like in the case of this necklace. I just couldn’t find the perfect gift so I decided to make it.
