Clothespin Necklaces

     I found this delightful necklace idea recently and just had to try it. . .

 
it's a necklace made from clothespins!
Do you see the clothespin springs?
 
If you'd like to make one, here's how to do it.

 
All you need is:
one bead
one clothespin
ball and chain necklace measuring 18"
wire cutters

 
First, take the spring off the clothespin.
Next trim the ends of the wire so there is about 1/4" left on each side.

 
Slide the bead onto the end of the spring. 

 
Then slide the spring onto the necklace.
So easy and so cute. 
 
 
As a matter of fact, I thought they were so easy and cute that I couldn't stop making them.

 
I went through my beads, found coordinating sets, and made triple bead necklaces.

 
Here's a close up of the green one and

here's the blue one.
 
 
 
But this one is my absolute favorite. I love the turquoise flower.
I've been saving this bead to do something special with it and I think this is it.
 
What do you think? Would you wear one?
If you have some cute beads, pull out some clothespins and give this a whirl.
 
 I'm sporting one tonight on date night.:)
 
Thanks for stopping by and God bless.
 
For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith,
as it is written, "The just shall live by faith."
Romans 1:17

I would never have guessed that it was part of a clothes pin. Very clever!
