2 white color of yarn

4 5mm LED (white)
5 LED cap (blue)

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

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...

yosyam (author)mslaynie2015-10-16

Hi, mslaynie! I haven't noticed your comment for 4 years!! Thank you put your comment and...wonder if you remember this?? ;)

mslaynie (author)yosyam2015-10-16

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!

yosyam (author)mslaynie2015-10-17

thank you mslaynie. I'm glad you think so. I really love here though I'm slow- crafter. thank you so much for your comment:)

Simple steps and beautiful necklace. Love it!

yosyam (author)MeganH182015-10-16

I really thank you for your nicely comment!

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!

pbiehler (author)yosyam2011-05-05

^.^ well it is very pretty and really fun lookin for a person like myself that likes Mystical. ^.^ I am sorry to give you aggravation on having to type in another language. You have a great time Crafting hun. ^.^

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

pbiehler (author)ulab2011-04-17

SC = single crochet. ^.~

Junebugbanjo (author)ulab2010-09-09

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

ulab (author)Junebugbanjo2010-09-10

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

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


yosyam (author)Junebugbanjo2010-09-09

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

andre rezende (author)2010-09-18

Congrattulations! Very beautifull and delicate work! And very detailed instructable too. Hope to see more like this!

zoneykid (author)2010-09-11

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

StoryAddict (author)zoneykid2010-09-15

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.

spiker546 (author)2010-09-06

does it not turn off?

yosyam (author)spiker5462010-09-06

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

gemtree (author)yosyam2010-09-09

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

Eirinn (author)gemtree2010-09-10

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

yosyam (author)Eirinn2010-09-10

I must try it next time :)

gemtree (author)yosyam2010-09-10

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

fibersofgrace (author)2010-09-09

Can you tell me, 1. where do you get the led and battery , parts etc?
Secondly, I crochet but yours is gorgeous. What a talent you haveand so creative...
2. how big is the final size?
3.How do you turn the light off and on?

yosyam (author)fibersofgrace2010-09-09

I got them Akihabara in Japan:) I wonder if you know there?
Akizukidenshi, the most poplar shop in Japan among the people who love technology :)

Eirinn (author)yosyam2010-09-10

Akihabara is a nice place, i stayed in the Asakusa district when i visited Japan. I will have to visit Akizukidenshi next time i visit :D

SaraHawk (author)2010-09-09

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

yosyam (author)SaraHawk2010-09-09

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

SaraHawk (author)yosyam2010-09-09

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

Suslee (author)2010-09-09

How long does the battery last?

Ghostgoku (author)2010-09-09

I must say that is absolutely beautiful.......are you going to figure a way not only to turn it off and on.....but a way to change out the battery?

hammer9876 (author)2010-09-09

Great birdcage! And congratulations on being featured!

MsJaxFla (author)2010-09-07

Wow, it is just the most beautiful and creative necklace I have seen since my own mother quit being able to create.... love it.

scoochmaroo (author)2010-09-06

Is it just me, or does this remind anyone of the Rouge Agent books by K.E.Mills?
