DIY: Multi-Triangle Leather Necklace

DIY: Multi-Triangle Leather Necklace

May 17, 2016

Our friends have been in town since last Thursday and we've been so busy running around doing awesome tourist-y things (pictures coming soon!), that I haven't had a minute to post! With a little down-time before raiding the next Colorado brewery, I wanted to share a quick DIY with you: a super simple, boho-esque, multi-triangle necklace.

You'll need:

A strip of leather (or multiples if you want different colors)

A chain of your preferred length 

Scissors

Jewelry Pliers

E-6000

Versa-tool (optional)

Cutting Mat & sharp knife *not shown - don't hate, I didn't know I would need it until I got started and realized that scissors are mostly crap for creating holes.

First, cut out your triangles. I completely "wung it" and just cut one at random, and then used it as a pattern piece to cut out two more of identical shape.

Next, use your knife and cutting mat to whittle two small holes in the top corners of one triangle - this triangle will be the top-most triangle that attaches to your chain.

Optional step: use your versa-tool to create patterns on your top triangle (with the holes). I burned a triangle outline, then realized that small pieces of leather tend to fold up when introduced to heat, so I had to let it rest for awhile with some heavy books on top in order to flatten it back out.

Use your E6000 to adhere the triangles in a layering pattern - remember to place the triangle with the holes on top! Let dry for at least 30 min. before handling further.

Next, use your jewelry pliers to remove two loops from your chain - these will act as jump rings to attach the rest of the chain to your triangle creation.

Place the loop through the hole in the top triangle, place your chain through it as well, and use your jewelry pliers to close the loop back up, attaching the chain to the triangles. Repeat with the other loop/hole.

And you're done! I'd let the necklace sit for a bit longer if your E6000 isn't quite set, but once it's dry, you're all set! I ended up adding a small, yellow, leather triangle to the top piece just to give it a little something extra.
