I got the idea for this necklace when I saw this gorgeous one from Fab. But since I didn't want to try to hunt down metal triangles, and also since leather is so trendy right now, I went for leather. Easy, inexpensive, and a little edgy.
- 20 inches of fine cable chain
- 1 jewelry clasp (an easy alternative is to buy a pre-made chain necklace)
- 4 small jump rings (2-3 mm)
- 3 large jump rings (10 mm)
- 3 inches of black leather trim (I found mine at Joann's in the lace/trim section)
- Needle nose pliers
Step 1. Cut out two equilateral triangles from the leather, then use a pin to poke holes in the top and the bottom. If the holes need to be slightly larger, use the point of a sharp knife.
Step 2. See the photo below to assemble the necklace. Use needle nose pliers to open jump rings (mine were flexible enough that I could hold one side of the ring with the pliers and bend the other side open with my fingers -- that was easier than using two pairs of pliers).
And that's it!
