Tools and Materials:
Black leather (or faux)
Black cord or lacing (15 inches or more, depending on your length of necklace)
4 fold-over crimp ends
4 jump rings
Rhinestones in setting (mine are broken off from earrings and necklace from this project. If you can't find rhinestones at the craft store, try cheap jewelry stores like for earrings like these or these)
Optional but adds a nice finished look: leather punch, rivets, and rivet setter.
Using the super glue to attach the jewels to the leather. A toothpick to apply the glue helps keep the mess down. Let the jewels dry for several hours.
Cut the leather around the jewels into the shape of a triangle.
Using scissors or a leather punch, poke holes into each corner of the leather. If using eyelets, insert into the holes and set the rivets.
Cut your cord into two pieces for your desired length of necklace. Mine were 7 1/2 inches each.
Using the pliers, fold over the the crimps onto each piece of the cord, one on each end. Attach each cord to the leather triangle with a jump ring.
