Introduction: Minimalist Birch Bar Necklace
Outdoors and modern? A longer, simple shape mixed with the natural highlights of tree bark will be sure to impress and shine on you! this project is incredibly easy, taking on a saw, sander of sorts, and a drill, and it is sure to bring results with your very own one of a kind necklace.
Step 1: Sourcing and Shaping
A long piece if kindling sized birch with bark will do. Cut to the appropriate length. Sand down wash edge, making it into a bar shape.
Step 2: Drilling and Mounting
Drill a hole with an electric drill, or a drill press preferably, and make sure to keep the hole within the size of a jump ring or other suitably connection. Add a jump ring to secure this to a necklace strap. Using a cord or a chain secure it another 90 degrees, so it rests facing outwards!
Step 3: Enjoy!
This modern and simple design combines the best of birch bark with a contemporary, modern look to fit all sorts of styles. its easy to make and looks great. Something I didn't consider was to stain the pendant, changing the color.
