I've been wanting to make this for a while and I've finally found the time to do it.  This necklace only takes beads and paperclips to make and is fairly simple.  You are just making the same thing over and over again and then hooking those things together. 

Hope you like it :)

Step 1: What You Need

Here is what you are going to need to get started.


* You can use any beads you want, but your paperclip cut lengths will probably be different then.
<p>gr8 idea and easy</p>
And I made a second one for my little sister! (:
<p>They both look awesome! Nice job :D</p>
I just made this and used a clasp and jump rings I already had, and I think it turned out beautiful! Thank you for the instructable, it's such a great idea!
SO pretty! SO simple! It's so amazing you can do that with only paper clips, beads, and some pliers! You did a wonderful job! Keep it up! PS: I like the beads you chose. They all go together and don't look bad. You couldn't top that! Nobody could! It's too beautiful to make any better!
WOW simple yet so charming this was a great !
Very elegant! Love it!
Thank you, I was really happy with how it turned out :)
This is lovely-- and so easy !!! thanks Sweetie. Appreciate.
Thanks :) Glad you like it!
Love it! I am going to have to try this...especially with a business name like The Brass Paperclip Project. LOL
Thank you! It is rather cute for how simple looking it is!
I liked that idea so much that I tried it yesterday by myself, not for me of course, and after that I showed it to my girlfriend and she almost didn't believed that's made of paperclips. <br>Thank you for that great idea!
Thanks! I hope your girlfriend is able to do it and has fun making it :)
This is very pretty. The only paperclip necklaces I've made are the one where you just clip the paper clips together. Your necklace is WAY COOLER!
Thank you very much :D
This looks brilliant, its hard to see that it has been made with paperclips, kinda professional looking. My daughter loves making stuff like this. :-))
Thanks! I hope she gives this a try :)
Thanks! I've never tired paper beads before, but I have been wanting to. Maybe it's time to give that a try :)
ALL CAPS RAAAAGE!!!!!!!!! <br>
cool and cheap!!!
Very cheap! Especially if you get the paperclips from work and the beads for cheap from Michael's or a used craft store!
it is easier to just use head/loop pins.
Yes, but not as fun :)
pepe and cheap......I love it!
Thanks :)
That's really pretty, especially for paperclips! Nicely done. :-)
Thank you :) I loved how the beads looked together and the pattern!
How great! Yes, doodlecraft- I too buy jewelry &quot;supplies&quot; all the time :-(. This looks great! Can't tell at all that it's paper clips. Since I'm an old-timer jewelry folk - a suggestion for everyone. <br> <br>How many times have I cut a wire too short for the second loop :-(! And as you said, Penolopy, you can unbend it and measure. What I do is I save the first one I get right and use that as a &quot;model&quot; or sample. I then measure the rest against that one and use that one for the last set of beads. <br> <br>You can actually make one loop and measure and cut for a bunch of links to be &quot;pre-ready&quot; for the beads and linking up! I just know the zillions of mistakes I've made over the years and am more than willing to share to save anyone else a bit of time (or maybe $). <br> <br>Again, it looks beautiful. Great tutorial &acirc;™&yen;
Great tips!
Awesome job, my niece is going to love this as she is aways making paperclip jewelry. Thanks. <br>
Awesome! I'd love to see if she makes it!
Oh yes...this is beautiful...Next time i would do beads too! <br>Way to go Nicole :-D <br> <br>I agree with you shahanak... it is elegant...i guess i wanted everything to be with only office supplies...hence i omitted the trappings :-)
Thanks! Yeah, I've been thinking of doing this necklace for a while now and I decided to use the Office Supplies Contest as an excuse to finally do it!
It's very elegant...i just told shazni so :-) as she has done something similar but without beads <br> <br>http://www.instructables.com/id/Wood-Sprite-Hairstyle-and-jewelry/?ALLSTEPS
Yes, I saw hers, so cute!
This doesn't even look like paperclips! Mind=Blown! When I used to make necklaces out of paperclips it was just a bunch of paperclips strung together. :P
Thanks! I was really happy with the result!
Beautiful! I will try this with some glass beads that I have. Probably as a winter project.Thanks for sharing. <br>Sunshiine
Thanks, it's pretty fun to do and goes fast once you get the hang of it :)
Lady this is awesome! Can't even tell it was made with paperclips. :D
I love this! I always buy expensive eye pins! What a fabulous trick, it looks perfect! Thanks for this budget friendly alternative! :)
Thank you! I agree. It is pretty easy to make and now you can make them as long or as short as you want :)
