In attempt to make my own state shaped necklace, I did a little researching last night and found a great tutorial on the blog, V Juliet. I had everything I needed so no trip to the store was necessary.
After I made my loop, I started to trace my Indiana shape with the wire and my round nose pliers. I used masking tape to secure the wire as I went along.
I’m pretty sure many of you have seen those state shaped necklaces floating around the Inter-web for the past couple years. I’ve looked into them and debated purchasing, but the $50+ price tag always gets me.
Don’t get me wrong, I support handmade items, but I’m a cheapskate when it comes to certain things (she get it from her mamma), especially things I can DIY. When I start making my millions I’ll by handmade like it’s my job. Until then, I’ll save my $50 for our electric bill and attempt to make my own.
