Abhinyana is a Buddhist monk who provides the teachings of Buddha for everyone with the purpose of helping them get rid of their suffering and achieve happiness. I think it is really important to understand our negative qualities, embrace them and generate some positive outcomes. So, i decided to make a YinYang necklace to make remember those moments to the user. Whenever the user experiences some unexpected negative moments, the necklace keeps remember the user to trust life and negative things can give a birth to unexpected beautiful new experiences. Also, the wearer can light up the necklace depending on how he/she feels and use the LED on the sides of Yin&Yang as a symbol to show his/her state of mind.

Materials needed:

Black vinyl

White cotton fabric

Two LEDs

Lithium Coin Cell Battery

Adhesive Tape

A chain

Step 1: Let's Cut the Fabrics

First, I cut 5:5 inches black vinyl circle. Then I used a pen to divide the circle into two as Yin and Yang. After that I cut half cotton part for the Yang (White). For the Yin(Black) part, I cut black vinyl.

Step 2: Let's Make the Circuit.
