I'm just mad about turquoise, turquoise is mad about me..

Pauric suggested I end my negative hatred of Valentines Day and join this competition instead :-)

So here it is, a little necklace made out of all sorts of precious bits and pieces, with a few tools and some easily learnt skills.

Step 1: materials

you will need:

50cm of chain
1 large jumpring
several small jumprings
several headpins (the long bits of wire with bobbles on)
lots of special buttons and beads found all over the place

you know those little sample sheets you get with processed photos? Well, cut out a favourite photo, and cover it in some kind of gloss to make it stronger. The instructions for adding eyelets are at the end.

I really like this style. Beautiful work.
Beautiful necklace! I make jewelry from all kinds of things and I'll have to try this. Really cool way to put it on too.
thanks ting-a-ling, glad that you like it!
is that a guitar pick on the necklace?
hi there! No it isn't, its a button, but i did recently see a fantastic example of a necklace made with guitar picks, it was rather fabulous!
Very well done instructable. great close ups. Beautiful neck uhh necklace.
any hints on how to keep the eyelet from collapsing like mine always do?
hi jtobako, good to hear from you. hmm, good question. I tend to try and push the eyelet through the paper with my fingers before I hammer it down. That also means you can get it in exactly the right place. But other than that I can't think of anything. Let me know if this helps. Cheers, AnnaNomsa
