Paper Clip Necklace



Yes, I did it.  I made a necklace out of paper clips.  Is that too weird?  Well, take a look.  These were not ordinary paper clips but very COOL paper clips!  I bought them, not having a clue what I'd do with them.  One day I found my inspiration, creamy thread and a tiny crochet hook.

I picked them all up and went to work...


I used a chain stitch and hooked through each 
clip at two different places so that it wouldn't 
accidentally slip out the open side.  I just kept 
going until I felt happy with the result.  

I tied it off, added a droplet of 
super glue to the end knot and... 




Twa La!


I thought it turned out very pretty.


It has kind of a fun and funky look I think.

Then, I decided I may as well make some paper clip earrings.
They look lovely on my tomato plant so hopefully they will look nice on someone's ears.


I put it all together and felt mighty happy with myself.


Feel free to copy this idea.  Let me know what you come up with!
I'm so happy with it I am thinking of going to an 
office supply store to see what else 
I might want to crochet together!  
Or maybe a hardware store!   
Auto parts?
