So you've been to the flea market
and found some vintage treasures...
now what can you do with them you ask?
well of course
turn them into some wonderful one of a kind accessories!
Here in the first part of a
three part series...
vintage key necklace
or tag or drop or whatever treasure you've found.
the steps are all the same
and I kid you not
~what you need~
2-flat nose pliers-(to open and shut the jump rings)
a selection of jump rings- (all from my local craft store)
chain what ever length you choose (again most big craft store will carry chain)
and of course
your new found treasure
here is a close up of my first necklace
next to it
all of the findings used
in the demonstration key necklace
Begin by opening the swirl finding pictured
( I chose this type but any type of jump ring will work)
attach it to the key
add on another jump ring
continue until you reach the clasps
hook the clasp to the chain center
Lastly add the
jump ring on the lobster clasp and large jump ring
You DID IT!
you just finished your one of a kind treasure necklace!
In short this little DIY
is mainly all about
2 flat nose pliers
various size jump rings.
plus chain and treasures!
The basic concepts of this simple necklace
can used for all sorts of one of a kind accessories!
I wish you love and joy
as you style your own life
and your treasures!
