Sew Sunday: Metal Edition
What you'll need:
Needle nose pliers
jump rings [in case your chains don't open at the links]
various sizes of chain [small for a more delicate look, thicker for over the top, different colors for a unique look!]
Wire - [Just in case!]
Start by taking the chain you want as your main piece and loop it behind your neck and back. I used a bracelet looped through the area over my bust so I could measure my length. Leave yourself a little slack. I happened to have a huge claw clip laying around. I highly suggest having two, one at the neck, one behind the back. I wish I had done that myself. I then grabbed a thinner chain and replaced the bracelet I had as my place holder. Gradually lengthening the chain, adding just a bit of slack to let the middle chains hang. Unless you use equal weights of chain, it's probably going to be taut across the top chain. It's gonna take some playing with to get things just right, but have fun, and feel free to show me if you decide to make your own!
