How to Make a Barbed Wire Necklace

Barbed wire necklace is one of the most popular designs for a necklace today. It adds an air of mystery, and this is what many women like to have. Not only that, it is also very easy to make. This is how you make a barbed-wire necklace.

The first thing you will need to make your barbed wire necklace is a length of around eight or nine inches. You can choose to use sterling silver, or even gold if you so desire. Do not be afraid to use other metals as well, they will look just as nice. Some women prefer silver as it is softer to the touch than gold.

You will then need to make a looping motion on the wire with the barbed wire. Hold the end of the wire with your free hand, and slide it through the looping motion. You will need to do this over again. As you repeat the motion, you will notice the wire will become longer and you will be able to stretch the ends until you reach your desired length.

Once you have the wire reached the desired length, you will need to strip the insulation off of the ends. You can either cut them with a pair of wire cutters or by using a soldering iron. Ensure you strip the insulation off before you start with the barbed wire, otherwise the barbed wire will be too short to be effective.

The next step is to secure the barbs on to the wire. You will need a couple of nuts to hold the barbs in place. There are two types of nuts to choose from; round nuts and flat nuts. To test which type you need to hold the barbs on to you will need to apply a slight pressure around the barbs with your fingers. If the wire slips out, then you will need to replace the nut.

Once the wire necklace has been completed you can attach it to the end of the wire. You should use a soldering iron to screw the end onto the barbed wire. You need to ensure the end is secure, so that it doesn't come off when you are taking it off. Once the end is securely attached, you will want to wrap the rest of the wire around the barbs. The wrap will give the wire extra protection.

Once the necklace is secured, you can attach the clamps to the necklace. Most wire necklaces will come with clasps, however if yours does not, then you can buy some double-sided tape, which can be used to stick the clasps on. Once the clasps are attached you can string the necklace onto the barbed-wire necklace. Before you string the necklace onto the wire you need to cut a small piece of the leather or fabric. This will help you sew the piece of fabric onto the necklace.

Finally you will attach the clasp onto the barbed-wire necklace. Again, if the one you are buying does not come with clasps then you will have to buy some from your local craft store. The clasp should be secure, so that it does not come off while you are wearing the necklace. It is a good idea to wear the necklace on for a test run, before wearing it for a real purpose. Test how well it holds the tension, and how easy it is to remove the necklace from the barbed-wire necklace.

Now that the necklace is properly constructed, you are ready to finish it off. To finish off the necklace, you will need to use a soldering iron to put the last touch on the necklace. You may want to get a special pair of welding gloves so that you do not accidentally weld the clasp onto the barbed-wire necklace.

When you are first learning how to make barbed wire necklaces, you may want to practice on a scrap piece of cloth. Use the fabric to create patterns on the cloth, instead of the barbed-wire necklace. If you do not have any scrap cloth in your home then you can borrow it from a friend or family member. Once you have finished the first necklace you can move onto the next one. Remember, before you string a barbed-wire necklace you must first make sure that it is strong enough to hold the tension of the clasps.

Once you have all of your supplies together, you are ready to start making the necklace. String the barbed wire necklace as close to the clasp as possible. Make sure that when you string it tight there is no space between the clasps and the necklace. Once you are done with stringing the necklace you will be able to test it. Pull the strand through the holes on the back of the barbed wire necklace and see if it still works.
