Beaded necklace with bound neck section

Hi all, I've got this necklace that I'd love to recreate. The neck section appears to be bound with cotton, and the rest is strung with beads. Is there a tutorial somewhere for something like this? Cheers!

How to make a beaded necklace like this

Hi all, Another beaded necklace topic (sorry!) but I was wondering what tools/equipment/technique/materials I would use to make this sort of thing. I notice some are knotted, but generally I'd like to know how to make more complex patterns either knotted or unknotted. Any simple patterns/books, I'd love to take a look. Cheers! http://www.klimt02.net/jewellers/ulla-ahola

Little Camera Necklace

Hello everyone, So here is the deal, I wanna make a necklace that has a little camera inside that can shoot small videos, just for those moments when you wish you had a video camera, so you just happen to be wearing one. I thought about buying one of these: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/New-Lighter-Spy-DVR-USB-Mini-DV-Hidden-Camera-Camcorder-/150632633728?_trksid=p4340.m263&_trkparms=algo%3DDLSL%252BSIC%26its%3DI%26itu%3DUCI%252BIA%252BUA%252BFICS%252BUFI%252BDDSIC%26otn%3D8%26pmod%3D230632642485%252B230632642485%26po%3D%26ps%3D63%26clkid%3D1442896368867548212&_qi=RTM637057#ht_2083wt_1139 and adapting with the following tutorial. https://www.instructables.com/id/Easy-Hidden-Camera-on-the-cheap-Lighter-mod-B/ The main problem I am seeing is that I want to keep all the electronics towards the back of the necklace, with just the camera at the front. That means I need to extend the ribbon cable which looks extremely tricky, and I dont know where I would buy one from. Does anyone have any ideas on this? -Derek

Project: Nicolas Cage necklace!

So one of my favorite things ever is Nicolas Cage. A friend at work told me I should put his picture in a locket and I 1-up'd her. I can't wait to wear it to work and dance around in front of her. :D The necklace is make of the body of an old watch that I completely gutted. The necklace is one of those memory wire chokers you can get really cheap at craft stores. I cut the picture out of the paper case that came with the special edition of Ghost Rider. I'm pretty excited. I wanted to post it, but I didn't know that it would qualify as a slideshow. What do you think? I'll probably just leave it in the forums. :P

Help me make Owl Talon Necklaces!?

I have recently come by 2 very fresh and very real Owl's Talons. Theyre about 4-5 inches long and look really awesome. I want to make necklaces out of them, preferably with them grasping/holding a stone of some sort. The problem is I have no idea how to do this since these are real. I dont know much about taxidermy at all or if its totally necessary here and I'm not sure how to clean them either. I'm also not sure how to set the toes to make them grasp anything. Basically I dont know the first thing about this project and need all the help I can get. Plus its for a girl so I will really REALLY appreciate everyone that helps me out. :) Here is an image of the talons, I hope it makes things easier. http://yfrog.com/89picture002bwj (also if there is any question about it, no i did not go out and kill some poor owl)

Need help building gift for girlfriend(LED necklace)

So, Valentine's day is soon to be here. True, it is little early to be thinking about this, but the erly bird gets the early worm. So, anyways, I came with a schematic for an LED based necklace. The whole idea is that it consists of a symmetrical shape split into two halves, each an individual necklace. One of those two contains an LED and the other a battery, and when the two are placed together, they complete the shape and the LED lights up, symbolic of her being my other half.What I need help with is how can I build the contacts for the two halves and how do I actually build the two parts(what material to make them from, how to shape them, etc..)Much appreciated. hanks in advance, Usf

Barbie Tit Necklace

Ha, got yer attention with that subject didn't I?But it's true. Check out Margeaux Lange's site for more pictures. These are strangely gorgeous...Clearly she's got the jewelry-making skills to do a top-notch job but I think someone with as much imagination but less metalworking skill could do a reasonable imitation.

CIY: Bold Flower Necklace

Growing up I use to love playing with Play-Doh.  Something about the color, the texture, and the smell.  Oh, the smell… I remember I use to play with this contraption that I would attach little people to, that had holes in the tops of their heads.  I would crank a lever and the little people would grow Play-Doh hair.  I had hours of entertainment cutting and re-growing hair.  Ipad what? Oh, how entertaining kids has changed. I never imaged that I would get the chance to play with clay again in my thirties.  To create my Oscar de la Renta look I decided to grab some clay and go to town.  Unfortunately this clay did not have the Play-Doh smell I remember, but I still had just as much fun creating with it. Click here for the full tutorial!

Leather forming/embossing

Hi all, Curious how this necklace has been achieved. The description said the links are leather. The designer also does a lot of embossing with leather but this one is puzzling me... http://www.pinterest.com/pin/250794272973076159/

single wire LEDs - why don't they exist?

Because such a thing would totally solve my LED jewelry problems. I'd love to able to just solder an LED onto a necklace chain without needing to slice the chain. So why can't I? Curious.

What Would You Make With These?

I have a number of these rings. I was given some free fabric samples and these secured them all together, like binder rings but huge. They are 6" across, hinged on one side, with threaded closures along the straight section.  Does anyone have ideas about how to repurpose them? Not much comes to mind except charm necklaces. Maybe something for a Halloween costume?

Using Instructables to increase traffic to your Etsy shop

Several people have asked why I'd want to have a tutorial up for an item I'm selling on Etsy - the answer is simple! It's another way to drive traffic to the item you're selling while offering something nice to the community. :) While many people on this site would love to make the item themselves, there are also a large number of folks that don't have the time/materials/resources to make the project and are fine with buying it! I opened my Etsy store, making jiggy, in early September of last year. I've listed golden snitch necklaces, lego necklaces, fold over clutches, and some embroideries - many of which are instructables. I've sold a good amount of stuff on Etsy, especially the golden snitch necklaces - it's been much more successful than I had ever thought! As of writing this, I've got around 5,500 views on Etsy, and a little over 1,000 of them have come from Instructables. (edited update - as of right now I've got over 9,000 views and 1,800 of them are ibles!) That's the majority of views I've gotten from an external site! The rest of the views have come from Etsy search, my tumblr blog, stumbleupon, and random websites that have linked to it. I'd say if you have a successful project on Instructables, why not make a few extras and open an Etsy store? It could be a good way to get a start on Etsy. And if you've got an Etsy store you'd like to promote, why not post an awesome instructable showing us how you make an item from your shop? Just make sure to link to your Etsy store in the instructable's intro! I'm definitely going to keep turning my instructables into listings for my Etsy store and vice versa. It's been a great experience. :D

I have not received any email notifications from Instructables

Ever since I made an account on Instructables I have never gotten any email alerts from Instructables. For the email alerts I chose "as they are made" for all of them and never got a single email. Then I changed it to "once a day" and still did not get any emails. I signed up for the Instructables newsletter and have not gotten it yet Also, I did not receive a PM to tell me I was a finalist in the Necklace Challenge.

chainmaile aspect ratio

First of all , I welcome all . I fell in love with chainmail . I love its simple complexity , its beauty . I respect the time it takes to create a piece of jewelry . I made a couple of bracelets and necklaces for my kids and for my wife. I had no idea about the aspect ratio , or how a pattern should be loose or tight. Once the AR is firmly determined and once in range . I'm having fun , but I would like to know what your AR experience with certain patterns. Anybody willing to share some wisdom? DP ( Croatia )

Harry Potter crafts/projects you'd like to see?

We've got a lot of excellent stuff on the site already, but surely there are more things we could make! I've been pining for Hogwarts in general since the movies came to an end, so I'm rerouting my love in crafty ways. I've been trying to come up with some ideas this week. I made a golden snitch necklace yesterday, and I'll be making another one and posting an instructable soon. :) So what other things from the books/movies would you like to see? :D

multiple categories: not possible?

Hey! i just wanted to know if and if, how, it is possible to add an instructable into multiple categories when publishing. or if it does'nt work (which it apprently does not), why not? i had the following "problem" several times already: imagine i would post an instructable for a necklace made from reused paper. when i want to publish it, i now have to make the choice if i add it to category "paper", "jewelry" or "reuse". this choice it not always easy, i have to think if i (in this case) would think it more important that the thing is made of paper, or that it is made from reused material, or that it's jewelry. hope i made my problem clear! thank you

Chinese Knotting

Chinese knots are, in some ways, similar to Celtic knots. Each knot represents a particular traditional Chinese form, and in many cases are representative of Buddhist precepts like the continuation of life. Chinese knotted jewelry usually incorporates a main jade or stone centerpiece and jade, stone, coins or glass beads. The cord from the knots usually is extended upward to make a lanyard for a necklace, but with some bracelet styles the knot or knots are extended around the wrist with a macramé style knot. Chinese knotting was nearly lost as an art form. In recent years, several books teaching knotting techniques have been released. The cord used in making the knots is readily available at craft or fabric stores. Josephine Knot (Chinese Double Coin Knot) http://www.bridgat.com

Free to Good Home

Just an Idea but if someone can market it feel free to, just send me one LOL. There are many medical alert necklaces / bracelets etc out there for people act risk of falling which is a good thing,but the catch to all of them is the monthly cost of subscribing to some monitoring service and $20 a month doesn't sound much but to someone on a fixed income it can be a big deal. It seems reasonable that someone out there could come up with a simple system using off the shelf stuff for a transmitter and receiver set up and hit the button and the receiver dials the first of say three numbers with a recorded message. It would dial out until it received a human, have it wait for the tone of someone pushing one or something and then play a recorded message "Help I've fallen and can't get up" or something and send help to 1313 Mockingbird Lane. You could put a relative or a neighbor first and a second perhaps then 911 or if the person is likely to need fast medical help have it dial straight to 911 but make it simple to program. Make the necklace / pendant play a sound when it's been activated and maybe make a 20 second pause before it dials out so people could cancel accidental triggers by picking up the phone or something, which cancels the tone from the pendant but leave the tone on once the first number has been dialed incase the victim loses consciousness so first alerters can find them quicker. Put a silence button on the receiving unit but disengage the phone silencing option in case the first person there picks up the phone... This seems a simple concept that people could sell for like $40 and I'd bet all my donuts there is a big market for something like this in that range, plus it would help a lot of people by taking away some of the fear of living alone as we age... And we all age. Any thoughts? Could it fly?

Starting my business ( Need your help and opinions)

Hey, As you may have seen in my previous topics that i was asking ways to make money i have thought out and planned to make a business from the help of friends and family. It would be a general business and the aim would be to earn money as all ways. So the business is not just doing or selling one thing but everything possible to make money. So it would be a home based business for starters and then would expand to a shop. Here are the things we plan to sell. - Burned music cd and movies and games. - Tourist guide service - rare stones and artifacts - Typing and computer services - necklace and other jewelery - Website building service - Gadget shop - Second hand goods for sale And i need more of your ideas to add to the list..so your ideas are welcomed.

Transforming Halloween

Ever since seeing the Transformers movie I just couldn't stop thinking about transformers. So I decided a Transformer costume was it this year. It started out as just a box and later became more elaborate and more of a car. IT IS FINALLY DONE. Took three months but it's done. Pictures of the final product is here. Today I took it to school for a contest. I probably transformed at least twenty times. At one point the tape wasn't working on the spoiler because the "haters" would tear it off. So we used a bolt instead. In the contest people were chanting my name and I won ... a cheapy blue necklace. But now whenever I was going around the block all I would hear is "Are you the Transformer kid? Transform for us". Of course I would. So if anyone has questions or wants me to post instructions let me know. The instructions will be hard because of the variety of height and weight.

Melting Tin Alloy to make pendant jewelry

I've made several attempts to melt down a tin alloy metal (92% tin, 8% antimony) to make pendants; small pendants for necklaces. I haven't had any luck with this at all!  The mold has been cast - the metal has been chosen but...my process isn't working. I'm using a hot plate and a small teflon pan to melt the metal. The problems I'm running into are: Once I melt the alloy, I can't get it into the mold before it starts cooling.  It pours out too quickly from the pan, then cools too quick to finish pouring.  It's a small mold (1 3/4" diameter with 1/8" lines) which isn't helping I'm sure.  Not sure on a couple things I'm hoping somebody who know more about this than I do could possibly make some suggestions. I don't know if I should be using a flux to keep the metal clean because it is getting dirty after the melting. I don't know how to get it from the pan to the mold before it cools? Someone, I'd imagine, must have come out with a tool for transferring small amounts of metal to molds.  I tried a glass eye dropper today but didn't have any luck with the transfer process.  Not sure if a crucible and flux is the way to go or not. If so, does anybody know of a good company that has items designed for this type of work? Any and all help / info / suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!  Thank you
