I absolutely love the Olympics and get so excited every two years because I get sucked into the competitions...all the competitions! Over the weekend I was enamored by the handball and archery games, and have been watching the fencing matches as well, on top of the popular prime time swimming, gymnastics, and volleyball competitions.
After seeing those rings on screen all the time, they've been lasered into my head (along with the theme song - I'll spare y'all the clip...I can't stop singing it after every commercial break!) and I came up with a fun project to show my Olympic spirit!
It's necklace time!! I began with five key rings...
...and created the formation, attaching the rings to each other.
Time to get these bad boys in their right shades!
Taking a cue from the Anthropologie lookalike necklace I made a few months back...
...I decided to work with embroidery floss again!
I began with the ring all the way to the left and grabbed the floss in blue! I kept the floss in place by putting it right at the ring opening before adding E-6000 glue to really secure.
Then began the wrapping! I did this method for each of the rings. I had the top row of three complete...
...and then got the final two finished as well.
I took some craft chain I picked up at Joann's along with jump rings and connected both to the blue and red rings at each end.
Once the chain was connected, I added a spring ring clasp to one of ends of the chain...
I couldn't wait to get this around my neck!
It was like my gold medal!
