Here are the directions to make this arty necklace. Have fun!
11 regular size pipe cleaners
Various colors of Sari ribbon (or thin strips of silk/cotton/poly — whatever you have in your scrap bin)
Hairy yarn remnants (Eyelash yarn or any other textured yarn)
Various colors of thread (solid, variegated, cotton, poly, metallic, anything you have
Colorful elastic hair ties (adult or child size)
Light weight rubber/metal charms
16mm jump rings
Couching foot (optional but very handy!)
I know this sounds complicated, but really, its not. Once you get the hang of making the pipe cleaner circles and how to attach these together with jump rings, it goes pretty fast. Every time I wear this necklace, people notice it and love it. I’ve listed the materials I use but feel free to substitute your own. I tend to keep everything light-weight but I encourage you to experiment using the materials in your stash.
