1 crochet hook
2 blue color of yarn
3 conductive thread
4 5mm LED (white)
5 3V coin cell battery
6 vinyl tape
7 scissors
8 pliers

and needle, necklace clasp

Step 2: Before Make the Circuit

Cover the LED leads by tape, not to touch each other. Using pliers, twist the leads a few times, creating loops.

Step 3: Crocht a Ball

    I've always wondered:
    Do you shock yourself if you touch the conductive thread with a current running through it, or is it completely safe?

    no you wont shock yourself but if you wear it in the shower you might feel a little tingle it will get very nasty if you do that though also long very wet hair may cause .a tingle too,

    I think there are no problem if you touch the conductive thread with current through it, because it's very weak.
    Of course, the large currents can be dangerous.
    I also weaved conductive threads into chain to avoid touching the threads the skin directly.
    But perhaps I should do all kinds of things for completely safe next.

    So you are shocking yourself, just with a really low voltage/watts?. Ok then, thanks! Cause I've seen other projects where your skin is touching a live wire and I'm a bit cautious about that...

    I do not shock at all actually from this necklace. May be you saw my other work 'birdcage' that I didn't use the conductive thread.
    If you really worried about getting a shock from the threads, it might be better to cover them with bead or something :)

    It is a very clever design - I didn't read the Instructable thoroughly, but is there a reason to have the battery in a separate ball? Why not have the battery in the tear drop with the LED and run the wires straight up to the clasp?

    Using the clasp as a switch is very smart!

    Hmm.....no special reason :).
    But I thought I could avoid threads to touch each other if I had the battery in a separate ball.

    Very nice job but step 3 and 4 offer no description. I have no idea on how to crochet. That should be included in your instructable. Your leaving out nearly half the projects information.
