a necklace made of paperclips
Because i had got such a buch of pretty coloured paperclips from my dearest friend Sheila i thought i must make one specially for her.
I know she is a old gothic girl so i thought mayby i must make a black white version for her, but with a nice middle piece in front.
I have used the same methode like my other paperclip necklace but i worked on both sides from the end to the middle.
don't worry, i have made a tute for you all;-D
hope you like this one too;-D

some of the pictures you will see that they have coloured paperclips, because i have used the pictures i had made allready for the other necklace,Don't get confusi

you can always use your own colours and changing the tute , be creative and have a lot of fun with the making of, thank you for hopping by;-D
