My first idea to make yin yang jewelry, came when browsing pinterest, where I saw a beautiful wire wrapped yin yang pendant. I tried to make a simplified version of this pendant myself, but lets just say my attempt looked like someone found some wire, bended a base (which didn't go that bad) and after that forgot everything about wire. I do plan on giving this pendant another try, but not for a while.

Then, I thought, I love the yin yang symbol, why don't I go for a somewhat easier option? Using an image and a quote, I created these pieces, a pendant and a pair of (my first ever made) earrings.

I'm really happy with how this turned out, although the white text does have a slight blue hue to it, but that's because of the scale I made this on. When printing it larger, it still would have been there, just not as noticeable.

I really hope you'll like it!

Step 1: Materials

To make this, you will need:

- cardboard
- glue
- a compass
- pliers
- scissors
- earring hooks
- a jump ring
- a necklace
- wire
- the printed images

<p>The Yin and Yang is a sacred symbol not a fashion statement. What you're doing here is called cultural appropriation and is totally disrespectful.</p>
Super cute and easy to make. My name is Yang btw. A common first and last name in my culture. :-)
