Hi all,
I'm fairly new to jewelery making so I have a question for all you pros!  I want to make a necklace for an 8 year old, how long should I make it?  It's a gift for her 1st Communion, so I don't want to ask her mom.  She's a normal sized kid.
Thanks,
Ellen

It depends on how long you would like for it to hang. Do you want a choker style or something that dangles longer? I would think a 14 inch would be a good size. This size would not be tight on her neck and she should be able to wear it for years to come.

Thank you Lisa.  I ended up making it about 15 inches long and put a little cross in the middle.  I used two jump rings and an eye pin to hang the cross.  I guess it looks ok.
