So I wanted to make a necklace with paperclips, but I didn't want it to be obviously paperclips.  I think it worked out pretty well.




You can find the full directions here: http://www.instructables.com/id/Simple-Paperclip-Necklace/.

For now, here is what you need:
  • Paperclips, the normal small kinds, #1 sized
  • Big beads that are 6mm
  • Small beads that are 3mm
  • Needle nose pliers
  • Round nose pliers
  • Wire Cutter (I used a tin cutter because that's what my husband had)

Thanks!  I was going for very much not like a paperclip and so far most people can't tell that's what it's made of just by looking at it!

Thanks!  I wouldn't say it took that long.  Maybe a couple of hours since you need to straighten all the paperclips first.
