Geometric DIY Statement necklace
This gorgeous geometric DIY statement necklace is perfect for New Year’s Eve or any other special occasion! It’s easy to hodgepodge and glitter with Mod.
Hello fellow Mod Podgers! My name is Steph from the blog The Silly pearl, and this is my first post, there's a post on Mod conglomeration of rocks!
I am going to share how I made these vinyl-geometric DIY statement necklace Mod Podged with glitter. It is sparkly enough for the holidays, a new year's eve party, but it's not too blingy so you can wear it anytime with any outfit.
I was inspired to use vinyl to save by a modest remnant of the fabric. This is the first of many ideas in my head, and I still have plenty left, since I only have a few scraps.

Vinyl fabric (also leather, bonus points could, if it upcycle!)
Glitter (even more bonus points if you stole from your kiddos' stash)
Small hole punch (1/16 shown)", not
jewelry shown) returns: 6 mm jump rings, chain, lobster clasp (optional), pliers, wire cutters.
Cut three triangles with fabric scissors. As in my very technical diagram below, the upper side of the triangles are all the same length (1 5/8 inch).
and Then extend from there to the bottom point of the triangles just to the bottom, if that makes sense. So by the middle of the upper page, the upper triangle is 5/8 inches long, the middle triangle is 1.5 cm long, and the lower triangle is 2 1/8 inches long.
Then simply cut out to meet the two other sides of the triangle, the lower point. Set aside the medium-sized triangle.
apply a thin layer of Mod-smorgasbord, the top (smallest) and bottom (largest) triangles.
Then sprinkle glitter on the Mod Podged surface, and press the glitter into the Mod-hodgepodge. The wait to dry, about 20 minutes.
the brush with another thin layer of Mod to seal hodgepodge (and to keep the glitter fall) and let it dry for more time (about an hour). Remember, the Mod-hodgepodge dries clear, so don't fret...your sparkles again!
All dry! Grab the middle triangle and place it in between the two sprayed love.
tongs a hole through all three layers in each corner with the hole. If you go with leather, or something thicker, you may need to use an awl or a leather punch hole-thingy. Then add a jump ring in each set of holes.
you could of your chain, add the jump rings at this point and be done with it (make it long enough to throw over your head and you do not need a lobster clasp).
But I thought it would be interesting to cut some small triangles, add glitter using the same process, and punch the holes on the top and bottom of each.
I needed three additional jump-rings, plus an additional inch chain between the small triangles and the pendant.
And you are done with your geometric necklace! I love the paint and the glitter, a luxurious combination, but not so much that I can't wear it with my mom uniform of shirt, cardigan and jeans But of course, I'd much night, prefer to wear it on a date.
