Sprocket Felt Necklace

About this design:

I wanted to create a focal that was retro inspired but with a modern twist.

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

I used one 20mm felt round, vinyl/vulcanite heishi 3mm and 4mm, head pins, resin, and finished silver chain.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
I used wire cutters and trimmed by head pins down to 1/2" in length. Cut the head pins at a sharp angle so you can easily insert it into the felt round. Take the headpin and put it through a vinyl heishi. Add a little resin with a toothpick to the heishi and insert the head pin.
  Step 2:
To create a loop for hanging, I used a full length head pin and strung a heishi onto it, then pushed it all the way through and create a wire-wrapped loop at the top.

    Your design is charming. But I’m concerned that children might be attracted to the bright colors and play with it. If the resin broke off, they might wind up swallowing a bright bead with a sharp pin attached.
