24 1" googly eyes
2 small silver jump rings
6" silver chain (optional)
lobster clasp
toothpick
round nose pliers
wire cutters

Instructions

1. Start by cutting 12 3″ lengths of 20 gauge wire.

2. Use toothpick to spread E 6000 glue over back of googly eye. (figure 1)

3. Stick wire flat directly into glue (figure 2). Lay another googly eye over top and press, sandwiching the two together. Lay a heavy flat object like a phone book over top to add pressure while drying. Let dry.

4. Once dry, use round nose pliers to make small loops, linking each eye together until all are completely linked (figure 3).

5. Add jump rings to the last loops and add lobster clasp for closure. Add chain if you need the necklace longer to fit your neck. This project was submitted by SwellDesigner.

    Lol…looks creepy if you know they are supposed to be eyes, but i looks VERY funky (in a good way!) if you don’t. Really good idea!

  3. A friend and I have a competition to see who can google eye stuff the most.
