I've been thinking about making this little project for quite a while and voila- the perfect opportunity!
The items from the list that were used:  Penne (pasta), gimp, popsicle sticks

The "chain" is made out of penne shapped pasta that was spray painted with "platinum" metallic spray paint.  The cross medallion is made from two popsicle sticks  - one was cut in half and trimmed down to make the cross piece and then glued to another full stick.  I spray painted it as well.  I coated all of the pieces with clear laquer spray because the silver was sort of rubbing off  Undecided

Then I "iced out" the cross by gluing on rhinestones in different shapes and sizes and added a little silver glitter for extra sparkle.  I glued a small piece of pasta to the back of the cross to create a "bail" to hang it on.  I strung up all of the penne and the cross onto silver metallic gimp.  I'm really quite pleased with how it turned out.  I'm sure aspiring rappers everywhere will be scouring the supermarket and craft store shelves to create this original piece of jewelry!   Cheesy
