In today’s tutorial, I crafted this lightweight ruffle necklace with Sheet Metal pieces and irRESISTible in Cottage Ivy. This necklace can be given as a gift or added to your collection of handmade jewelry.
Time: 1 hour
Skill: Beginner to Intermediate
Spray the Sheet Metal pieces with the Irresistible Cottage Ivy color and let them dry. Irresistibles is an acrylic based gel that will adhere to the metal. Allow moderate dry time. Be sure to clean the nozzle after each use.
Use pliers to bend and shape the Sheet Metal pieces to any shape avoiding breaking them.
Imagine’s Sheet Metal comes with one hole punched at the top. To create the chain, open additional holes to allow jump rings connections. Sheet Metal is durable yet soft enough to punch holes easily.
Start connecting the Sheet Metal pieces with jump rings and when you achieve the desired result, add the chain and the ending hooks.
- Jewelry chain, jump rings and hooks
- Piercing tool (or round hole punch)
