Transparent Plastic Embellished Statement Necklace

Clear Vinyl Plastic Statement Necklace DIY

Do you remember the hot pink vinyl fabric bracelets I made from an old curling iron case? I finally figured out what to do with the clear vinyl plastic from the same case.

I decided to make a chunky statement necklace by using some heart shaped plastic sew-on rhinestones that I got on Ebay a while ago.

I began making the statement necklace by tracing out my design on paper. To get the necklace to sit right around the neck I took a collar from a blouse and used as a reference around the top half of the necklace (I used the same collar to make the pom pom collar necklace a while ago).

After that I cut out the design from the vinyl fabric and sewed on the plastic jewel stones.

This is how the necklace looks on the backside.

To secure the stones a little bit more I also put some glue on the thread on the back.

For closure I decided to go with a simple push button. I used some glue here as well. Not sure if I am going to put another jewel over the button to cover it up…

I like it!
