Try This: Colorblock Necklace Tutorial

Colorblock Necklace
Everybody these days loves some colorblocking, no?  Jump on the bandwagon with this simple little project.

Colorblock Necklace Mosaic

1
Materials:  1" Wooden Craft Block, Painter's Tape, Craft Paint, Paint Brushh, Drill, Pliers, Chain, Head Pin

For some reason, this seems like a lot of supples, but these were all things I had around.  In fact, I just hijacked the chain from another mult-strand necklace that I already owned.

2
Directions:  Tape the block off for the color blocking pattern of your choice.  I went with a simple half triangle pattern.

3
Paint.

4
Drill a small hole through the center of the painted block.

5
Put the jewelry head pin through the hole, trim, and create a loop.  I would include the details for how to do this here, but I learned myself from jewelry-making 101 tutorials around the web.  This video is decent, if a little long. 

6
Using two pairs of pliers helps with the next few steps.  You can use the pliers to open the links of of the chain.

7
...in order to attach the chain to the head pin loop. 

8
I made mine as a Y chain.  You do this by opening up a link and attaching it midstrand.  Since this is a long one, no need for clasp.

9
Your finished work is super simple but pretty cool.
