Introduction: Birdcage Necklace

This necklace would be more glittering in the evening.

Step 1: You Will Need

1 crochet hook
2 white color of yarn
3 chain
4 5mm LED (white)
5 LED cap (blue)
6 3V coin cell battery
7 vinyl tape

and scissors, needle..

Step 2: Tape the LED to the Battery

Tape the LED leads to the battery (the longer lead touching positive + and the shorter lead touching negative - of the battery ).
Keep the tape very tight.

Using the blue color of LED cap, necklace's light will be more subtle and when it's completed it looks like a Bluebird of Happiness!

Step 3: Crochet

Cover the battery and LED in single crochet.

Step 4: Crochet a Bird Cage


Step 5: Attach a Chain

Attach a chain to the birdcage.

I absolutely LOVE this!! It's beautiful and a bit magical! You've got me thinking of ways to accomplish something similar using wire wrapping...

You know, I had forgotten about the comment, but I'll blame that on my old age. After a quick glance, it came back to me, and I still love it!

I love this so much. Makes me feel like I can catch a fairy and keep it all to myself. ^.^ It seems to be easy but the only thing is the battery needs to be able to be changed after it is spent. I was wondering if there could be like a small latch at the bottom of the cage where the batteries can pop out and be changed. If I can get the time to crochet it I will try and work on that and see if I can come up with something with it. When I do I will be sure to let ya know so ya can add it to the pattern photos and all. ^.~ Happy Crocheting hun. Love yer work. ^.~

Thank you so for your comment!
I actually did small improvement that I can do switch-on and off the light of this necklace using a tiny switch. But in this case, I need to do soldering. It's a bit pain for me...explaining it in English here ;p.
I'll try to show it with decent text and images soon!

Can you give us a little more info on the stitching? What is an "sc"? :-)

author
pbiehler made it! (author)pbiehler2011-04-17

SC = single crochet. ^.~

'sc' means second crochet. If you get any crochet book it should give all of the abbreviations you should need to know

ulab made it! (author)ulab2010-09-10

It's kinda difficult to get a book with english abbreviations here in Germany ;-)

But I'll have a look with Google...

Thanks.

yosyam made it! (author)yosyam2010-09-09

Sorry! I used 'sc' meant "single crochet". I'll correct it later.

Anyone else reminded of The Wheel of Time series when they see this?

I haven't read Robert Jordan although I recognized the title. I was actually thinking this might be an interesting way to do the wisp (name escapes me at the moments) that Kahlan Amnell uses to cross the barrier in the Legend of the Seeker / Sword of Truth 'verse.

does it not turn off?

author
yosyam made it! (author)yosyam2010-09-06

No it doesn't. I want to improve it by the use of switch actually.

gemtree made it! (author)gemtree2010-09-09

It would be cool if you could use the necklace chain opened and closed to turn it on and off. Is that possible?

author
Eirinn made it! (author)Eirinn2010-09-10

With the use of some conductive thread this should be easily doable :)

author
yosyam made it! (author)yosyam2010-09-10

I must try it next time :)

Nylon coated wire would work. Make a connector that is protected from contact with the skin. Still musing on that one. You can crochet some of those. :D

Is this like 1/2" diameter battery? How long will the battery last if on continuously?
It is really awesome, I love it!

author
yosyam made it! (author)yosyam2010-09-09

Well, mine lasted almost one week. yes, it's very short....wink like fireflies :)

author
SaraHawk made it! (author)SaraHawk2010-09-09

I think that a week is a good amount of time. I bought LED pin that only lasted 4 hours. :-)
