Ooh, today I made this! Out of all my jewelry conjured from freaky trash, it has jumped right up there to rank with my favorites.
See that beautiful big scroll between the necklace and the pendant? It's the underwire from a broken bra.
Next time, don't just toss that worn out foundation garment. Whether it be boulder holder or pebble perker, rescue those underwires and turn them it into something pretty.
Here's the DIY.
Remove the little plastic wire ends. (Just tug, they come right off.)
To snap off the skinny metal tips, bend them back and forth a few times.
Grab one end of the underwire in round nose pliers. Begin turning with all your might.
Keep going until you have a swirl. Repeat for the other side.
Start a fold in the center with your fingers, like so:
Then push hard on the sides until the swirls crisscross.
Finish up with this one last move:
You made a pendant hanger! Now use an extra-big jump ring. Put it through the hole in your pendant, then close it around the entire crisscross. See what I mean?
Did you evah? Would you evah?
I would and I did.
