DIY Orange Slice Necklace

Following the fruit jewelry trend that is so huge for spring and summer, I felt the huge need to make an orange slice necklace!  This is so fun and punchy and I've gotten several compliments already!
Materials Used:
  • Plastic orange slices (bag of 5 for $3 at Michaels)
  • Scissors
  • Two jump rings
  • Lobster clasp
  • Chain (I used about 2 feet worth)
  • Jewelry pliers
  • Seam ripper, awl, or something sharp to poke a hole through the plastic (not pictured)
Cut an orange slice in half with your scissors.
Using the sharp point of your stitch ripper, or whatever sharp object you are using, poke a hole about the radius of your jump ring away from the cut edge of your slice.
Feed your jump ring through the hole you created, and close it.
Open up a link of the chain on one end and attach the lobster clasp.  Close the link.
(Not Pictured) Feed the other end of the chain through the jump ring on the orange slice.  Open your other jump ring and attach it to the end of the chain, and close it.
Here's your finished necklace!
Wear it, love it!  I think it goes without saying that it begs to be worn with citrus hues, I've worn it with a yellow tee.  Try it with yellow or a vibrant green, even white would look nice.  Hope y'all love this!  It's super simple and makes a great impact!  If you make this, send me a pic!
