    Step 1

    So this DIY all started when I was in Hobbycraft getting an A1 sheet of card for another project. Of course, it would be bad form not to check out some of the other aisles while I was there ;) I found these closed links in the clearance section of the jewelry making aisle. It was one of those "hmmm, I think I could make somehing interesting with these but I'm not sure what yet" kinda moments. At 49p a pair, I thought, "where's the harm" and promptly bought the last 3 packets; and had them hanging around in my bag for about a month when this idea popped into my head. (BTW, I thought 49p for 2 was a bargain. imagine how gutted surprised I was to find that you can buy them direct from the supplier at 65p for 10!!). Anyhow, "sniff" moving on...

    I kinda like how it turned out. Sort of a minimalist statement piece... if that's not some kind of contradiction in terms!
