Knight in Shining Armor: Pinterest Challenge

It's Pinterest Challenge Time! I have been going through my boards and hundreds of pins, attempting to find the perfect project. Inspiration hit me when I came across this neon bib necklace. However, neon is not my thing, at least not multiple colors of neon at once.

This project taught me one thing: I cannot imagine how labor intensive making a full suit of armor is, because this project continually pushed my buttons.

Here's what you need:
  • Pliers
  • Pewter rings
  • Jump Rings
  • Chain
  • Clasp

Unlike the Neon Bib necklace, I did ten rows, descending from ten rings to one ring. Link the rings together as shown, to form a triangle.

Once, the intense labor of connecting all the rings, the armor pendant should look like this:
Here is a close up of how the links together:

Once assembled, I didn't like the chain in the picture shown above. I found it too bulky, so I opted for a smaller chain. Once connecting the chain to the armor pendant with jump rings, complete the necklace with a clasp.
