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:
- a compass
- earring hooks
- a jump ring
- a necklace
- the printed images
Step 2: Searching images
When making this, you can decide two things: use the image I created, which is added in step 7, or make your own.
Start by searching the quote you want to use (or an other kind of text) and try to find a large image of the yin yang symbol. I only searched for large images to do so. Copy the picture or make a screenshot of it (libreoffice does not like cutting/pasting).
Step 3: Adding the base and text
Open a new text document. Add your yin yang image and turn it down in size. Zoom in to make working on it a lot easier. Type your text next to it.
