This simple project can raise your status to super-boyfriend.

Step 1: Materials

-thin, ordinary sewing needle

-good quality sewing thread


-jewelry clasp

-microwavable, heat resistant bowl / saucepan (depending on method used)


-whole cloves - san francisco herb sells 4oz of whole cloves for $1.83. Its a good deal if you're local, but they have a $30 minimum for web orders. To my boyfriend's dismay, I have had no problem surpassing this minimum on two occasions. One warning: a pound of dill is a LOT of dill even if it is only $3. If you would like some dill and you are in the bay area, please, please contact me.
What can I say? You are just brilliant!!! Well done! Nice necklece with nice perfume!!!
very nice! i am going to make some with cardamom pods and star anise! thanks for sharing!&nbsp;
&nbsp;THis is great!! Thanks so much for the idea, and great instructable!
This is a great idea! Thanks for sharing it. I like your photos. They are simple and elegant.
I really like the idea of putting the black beads in place of the flowers, I was thinking "but the heds come OFFF!" when I first read the intro. The black beads would give the illusion that the heads stayed on. Nice instructible.
Really unique. I am going to try to make one. Very creative. Thanks so much for sharing.
I like! Needed something fun to wear at music fests this summer, and this seemed perfect! Not only will I look cool and hippie, I'll be smelling good too. :)
sweet! that looks pretty cool, i might make one of those.
Ooo! What about using red white and green peppercorn! Maybe a nutmeg pendant?
Hmmm... this looks really neat. Could you add , say, some sort of a cinnamon pendant in the center? I wonder if a cinnamon stick could be carved or embossed or sanded in some sort of way...
So....does this keep Turkish vampires away?
The lovely smell of cloves comes from a chemical called eugenol. Besides the wonderful smell, it is used as a local anesthetic (chew on a clove and see how numb your tongue gets) and a component of a type of cement used to secure crowns on teeth.
I imagine that you could do something similar with garlic to keep the vampires away.
i think that is sterotypical =P Just Kidding<br/>
The problem is when the cannibals get you. They'll be so impressed by the flavor they'll start hunting down the rest of us.
I think I'll be making one of these today. I need something to do that doesn't require a lot of movement. :D
ooooh! i like that! i love the smell of cloves!
Hmm... wouldn't smell quite as beautiful, though! :D This is really neat, I'll have to try it some time.
lovely <sup>_</sup><br/>
this is an awesome project with beautiful results. I can't get enough of everyday object jewellery!
Thanks for the other links. Good question about the scratching, but they have never bothered me. They're actually very light and comfortable to wear--I hardly notice them.
Thats very pretty, I love cloves.. so many wonderful uses and 1<br/><a href="http://www.instructables.com/ex/i/32D2CD78B74810289B50001143E7E506/?ALLSTEPS">http://www.instructables.com/ex/i/32D2CD78B74810289B50001143E7E506/?ALLSTEPS</a><br/>and<br/><a href="http://www.instructables.com/ex/i/966E10AA4BB21029AC23001143E7E506/?ALLSTEPS">http://www.instructables.com/ex/i/966E10AA4BB21029AC23001143E7E506/?ALLSTEPS</a><br/><br/>But question, dont they scratch a little?<br/>
