I love this necklace! Sorry for the grainy picture, I just couldn't wait until morning for photos!
This idea was adapted from evie-s.com, where she made these, but a single triangle (earrings).
I thought they were so cute, so I decided to twist the idea up and create a modern-looking (at least for teens) necklace!
Two paper clips
Glue (I used Elmer's)
A jewelry clasp
Any designs or more thread to decorate (I used silver thread)
Start with one normal paperclip
Bend one prong
Now bend another
There! Done bending!
Now start wrapping the thread around the wire (Add a little glue before wrapping around)
Now start wrapping the whole triangle
Note the little hole at the point
I wrapped mine with silver thread. You could also wrap it with another color or add small embellishments
Now make your other triangle and put them together.
Tie them together with another piece of thread
Now braid some more thread and knot it. This will be your chain
Add a small jewelry hoop to a corner of one of the triangles
And a clasp to the chain. Now glue the other end of the braid to the other side of the triangle (measure around your neck first)
Have fun with your necklace!
