We were able to make this necklace in a flash with our Power Punch Pliers. We simply took our Sterling Silver Thought Bubble blank and punched out a matching inner cloud with the Power Punch. If you create a hole large enough, the Sterling Silver Lightning blank can then slide on through to make this a fun lariat. You can create this with any number of shapes and sizes. As an alternative, we have a picture of a flower and a leaf which we think looks beautiful as well.
- We started by cutting off the Thought Bubble Blank's "speaking part" (or the "V") and filing it down to make the blank look like a cloud. If you opted to make the flower necklace, then we cut off the top loop on this blank and filed it down to make it nice and smooth.
- Next we took the Power Punch Pliers and selected a variety of punch sizes to punch into our blank for the inner cloud void. We used various punch sizes 5/32", 3/16" and 7/32" to give it a more organic feel. We marked the shape with a sharpie pen and then punched out the defined shape. Make sure you overlap your punches so that it all connects and ends up getting completely "cut" out.
- We then punched an additional hole into each of our blanks where we attached chain with jump rings. We used the Metal Hole Punch Pliers to make these smaller holes.
- If you decide to create a true lariat by making the hole large enough to have a blank pass through, then your necklace is finished! If you decide to make a necklace that does not allow a blank to pass though the pendant, then you will want to attach a clasp to your chain so you can easily get your necklace on and off.
