Cut Your Fringe?

I've been in love with these fringe necklaces since I laid eyes on them but they're so expensive.

30 dollars.
59 dollars.
75 dollars.

If you're not using precious metals in the chain(s), no way no how.

Instead I found a DIY site that shows you how to make them (with step by step instructions from surprisingly, Urban Outfitters).

Instructions HERE

It takes about 10-12 bucks and a couple of hours if you keep making mistakes like I did but the end product is awesome.

(I did deviate from the instructions. The chain is sewn under the hem tape but I like being able to see the metal. Instead, I closed the hem around the fringe and sewed the chain on top, a stitch every other link.)
