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

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 ).

    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...

    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!

    ^.^ 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"? :-)

    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

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

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

    Thanks.

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


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

    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.

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