All you need is some flat wire, a knitting needle and a chain to create this minimal, mixed metal curve necklace!
You will need:
– Flat Aluminium Wire 50cm makes a 8cm long coil
-Knittiing Needle 5.5mm diameter
-Chain Nose Pliers
1.Unravel some of the wire and run it through your hands to straighten. Cut a 50cm length. This will make a coil approximately 8cm long when using a 5.5mm needle. Varying the length of wire and diameter of needle will create a different sized coil.
2.Take a 5.5mm knitting needle (or similar) leave a short tail of wire free and begin to coil the wire around.
3.I found that rather than trying to wrap the wire around the needle, using my thumb to guide the wire and turning the needle gave me a neater coil. The aluminium wire is quite soft, so easy to wrap, but creating a tight coil makes it more resilient.
4.Once you have only a short tail left, slide the coil off the needle.
5.Cut the ends at an angle, and tuck inside the coil, using chain nose pliers if needed.
6.Form the coil into a slight curve with your hands.
7. Feed the end of your chain through the coil to complete your necklace!
This necklace is so easy to wear- the aluminium makes it really lightweight! Let me know if you make your own version by commenting below, or message me on on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook! Happy Making!
