Gold Collar DIY

February 8th, 2012 § 0 comments

After seeing this Stella McCartney gold collar last year, I’ve been pretty obsessed with finding something similar.  I haven’t had much luck, so of course I turned to DIY!

To build this necklace, I used the same thin copper sheets that I used to make my gold belt last week.  I cut the metal into triangle collar shapes with scissors, and hammered down the edges so that they wouldn’t be sharp to touch.  I then made two holes in each triangle by hammering a thin nail through the metal, and filing down the holes to keep them smooth.

Finally, I attached the triangles to one another with gold chain and jump rings.  I used two jump rings in the front attached to one another and on one each outer corner to attach to the chain.  This step took time and patience – but was well worth the effort!

I’m so pleased with the result, and I want to wear my new gold collar over every blouse I own!!  What do you think loves?  Please feel free to ask if you have any specific questions about the process. {I’m no jeweler, but this was fun and pretty straightforward!}
