CHAIN COLLAR! HOLLER!
Does anyone else watch Tosh.0 and remember when Tosh wore a collared shirt every episode for a season? No? Well I do. And this here necklace was inspired by that.
No, it wasn't. I was more inspired by Dannijo's awesome Hixon Bib that I very much so want. (I also want everything else they make. Just sayin'. In case you are in the mood to drop a few Benjamin's on moi, my birthday is in September.)
But, back to Tosh.0 - if you don't watch it, you should. It's flippin' hilarious.
No, that's not all silly! I still have to show you the craft!
IGNORE THE SCISSORS. I had been crafting for a while when I started this little ditty. It was late. I think I was delirious. Point is, you do not need scissors for this project.
1. A light weight chain from Toho Shoji.
2. Metal loops from Toho Shoji.
3. Lobster claw hook from Toho Shoji.
4. Pliers from a local hardware store.
Use the pliers to cut the chain in half.
Use the pliers and the metal loops to attach both ends of each piece of chain. You should end up with two chain loops.
Use pliers and metal loops to attach the two chain loops you made in step 2.
About 1/3 of the way from the two chain connection, add a metal loop and the lobster clasp to one of the chain loops.
Add a metal loop to the other chain loop the same distance from the connection.
HOLLER FOR MY COLLAR!
Adjectives I could use to describe my new necklace:
I could go on.
POINT IS- this is a pretty versatile piece of metal. And I can't wait to wear it!
Have you made any bad-ass collar necklaces lately? Tell me you have! Then send me the pictures. Or buy this one. Seriously, I can make it for you. It would be my pleasure. E-me!
