Perler pixel necklaces

While working on a longer-term knitting project, I will sometimes manage the urge to cast-on something new (no harm in that, though!) by doing smaller-scale handmade projects.

I enjoy the things that¬†perler beads – in their near infinite versatility – can do. I’ve just discovered perler jewelry-making: fuse some beads, add a chain here, a connector ring there, a clasp, and you have yourself some nifty¬†new pixel-y things to wear.

Here’s a perler necklace picture-DIY for the curious (the patterns are not original).

Jump rings: the knees and elbows of jewelry. 7 mm rings are big enough for perler beads.
