Make a State Necklace

In attempt to make my own state shaped necklace, I did a little researching last night and found a great tutorial on the blog, V Juliet.  I had everything I needed so no trip to the store was necessary.

After I made my loop, I started to trace my Indiana shape with the wire and my round nose pliers.  I used masking tape to secure the wire as I went along.

I’m pretty sure many of you have seen those state shaped necklaces floating around the Inter-web for the past couple years.  I’ve looked into them and debated purchasing, but the $50+ price tag always gets me.

Don’t get me wrong, I support handmade items, but I’m a cheapskate when it comes to certain things (she get it from her mamma), especially things I can DIY.  When I start making my millions I’ll by handmade like it’s my job.  Until then, I’ll save my $50 for our electric bill and attempt to make my own.
