If you like DIY jewelry, you know that these metallic tubes are basic. But just because they are simple it doesn't mean that you should always use them the same boring way.

Metallic tubes

Thin wire

Pliers

A necklace or chain

Step 2: Make a Triangle

Cut a long piece of wire. String three tubes.
Form a triangle and twist the wire.

Step 3: Make a Pyramid

String two more tubes. Make them form a triangle with one of the tubes from the last step.
Continue making triangles until you have a pyramid.

Step 4: Join the Pieces

Make two pyramids.
For the middle I made a different shape. It's a square based pyramid. You can go through the same tube more than once until you have the shape you want.

The charm is ready, just attach it to a necklace.

    What size tubes are you using? They look to be about 6mm long x 1.5mm. I could be mistaken, especially judging from a photo. Also, thanks for posting your wonderful instructable. I know a mathematician who would love it.
