Sometimes what looks like a basic necklace can be slightly deceiving. That’s the case in the Leather and Turquoise Necklace. Making connections between flexible beading wire and leather is a technique that takes some know how, and doing it gracefully takes know how and experience. Michelle Mach created this Leather and Turquoise Necklace, which manages to make the transition between materials flawlessly with the help of a few good findings. By the end of this Monday Make, you’ll know how to make transitions between stringing materials quickly and easily!
All you need to make the leather and turquoise necklace yourself can be found at your local Michaels Store. Just click on the image to the right for complete printable instructions to take along with you!
Using turquoise dyed howlite and reconstituted turquoise cuts down on cost without diminishing the overall impact of the piece. The leather and turquoise necklace is one you’ll enjoy wearing for a special occasion or along with a t-shirt and jeans as you run around town getting errands done and stopping by your favorite coffee shop for a cuppa joe. And if you’re in a hurry, you can purchase all of the materials to make this necklace (as well as the tools) at www.michaels.com. Have them delivered to your doorstep so that you’ll have a kit ready to go when inspiration strikes–or the kids are all outside enjoying the spring weather and you get the house to yourself! A little time spent creating goes a long way to rejuvenating the soul.
Let’s get this Monday Make started!
