I think it's a cool transformation - abstract and fun.
Plus, if you use your scribble as a pendant hanger instead of a pendant, the possibilities multiply by approximately infinity!
And the best part: you can make one in five minutes or less. Wanna try? Read on for the simple DIY.
First, locate a stretchy-coil metal bracelet. I found some here, here, here. Also needed: round nose pliers, a wire cutter, and about ten inches of craft wire.
Make a wrapped loop on one end of the craft wire. Like so:
Next, cut the coil bracelet apart with wire snippers. Try to find the spot where the coil is soldered together. (Sometimes it's hard to tell - in that case, cut anywhere!)
Thread the craft wire through the stretchy coil, and finish with another wrapped loop.
Now create a scribble. Any old scribble will do. (This is pretty forgiving - you can bend and rebend several times until you get something you like.)
That's yer pendant! Add a neckwire, chain or cord to create a delightfully squiggly necklace.
To use your scribble as a bail, just slip a pretty pendant over the coil.
Tip: if you want to try this without waiting to acquire the stretchy coil, you can actually create this design with any kind of tubing. I made the following scribble with rubber window screen spline:
I know, I know - it's a bit, um, large. But interesting, eh? I hung a big, BIG piece of branch coral from the center; I kinda love the bold result.
Just think of all the fun ways you could style it.
That's it! If you get the urge to scribble up a super quick necklace, I hope you'll give this a try.
Next time, a pair of staggeringly simple matching earrings:
And yep - it's another five minute project. How could you not love that?
