Leather Arrow Necklace (Tutorial)

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.

Materials Needed:

  • 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
Directions:
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!

As always, email me or comment with any questions! Happy Friday!
