Here is an easy tutorial on how to make a beaded necklace, that is sort of statement necklace but not quite :)
Thing you will need: Beads, i got mine at Michael's, they were on sale for $1.79 each, i got 2 but ended up using only one. Eye pins and jump rings, if you are into beading you probably have those, as well as pliers and chain. That is pretty much all you need
After you get everything ready, take your beads and make every one of them look like the one in the picture below, with the help of eye pins and needle nose pliers
Once you are done, lay out your desired necklace just to see if you need any extra beads, i like the V shape, so here it is
Next step is to connect the beads with jump rings (the easiest way for me was to go from the top horizontal row to the bottom), it may get confusing, but its super easy, be patient :) Finish up by adding the chain and voila!
