I bought a huge pack of economy split rings on clearance and they have been gathering dust ever since.  No one probably really needs 200 keychains, right?  So I decided to see if I could make a necklace by wrapping some with embroidery floss.



I started by connecting two rings together.  It's best if they are connected before you start wrapping, because trying to connected them after it can snag the floss, or if you wrap all of them, you won't be able to connect them at all!  Each time I finished wrapping one, I just added another to the chain.



I wrapped mine pretty tight and kept pushing all of the loops together so they were as close as possible all the way around the ring.  I didn't measure exactly, but I think it was roughly a foot of floss per ring.  But I would definitely cut more than you think you need, just in case.  I got tired of wrapping, so I ended up finishing the necklace with some gold chainmaille jump rings.  I love how it turned out in the end!

Very cool! The gold jump rings look deliberate. Nobody needs to know that you got tired of wrapping! Wink

Your necklace is very creative. I like how you used different shades of blue and white.
