All you need to make the LOVE necklace are copper wire (I purchased 8 yards for $2.99), jump rings (a pack of 85 for $2.99) necklace clasps (also $2.99, and I purchased a chain for $4.99) ~ Since I didn't have any tools at all, I decided to purchase a mini-starter tool kit for $9.99 which included wire cutters, round nose pliers, flat nose pliers and tweezers all of which I picked up at Michael's.
You then use the copper wire to trace the word LOVE and tape it to the paper to keep it secure ~ I didn't cut it from the strand to make sure I had more than enough wire to work with.
Once you finish tracing, you clasp an end of the copper wire to the jump ring and use the wire cutter to secure the clasp.
You then use small pieces of the copper wire to keep the letters secure using the wire cutters.
I then cut a piece of chain (you can make the necklace as long or as short as you like) and used a jump ring to secure the necklace clasp.
I was pleasantly pleased with the outcome of my 1st DIY project and amazed that it only took around 30 minutes to make ~ I'm definately gonna rock my necklace and I'll rock it with lots and lots of LOVE!
