I don't remember exactly when I first found the Stella and Dot Pegasus necklace, but I do know that I've continually thought about it for ages. Even though I'm pretty good at navigating the interwebz to find supplies, it's taken me quite a long time to find the supplies to make it on my own. Recently I've discovered how to order things in bulk from China on Alibaba.com and it's really helped my statement necklace-making endeavors. :)

For this project, you need:
-Leather scraps (This leather is from an old leather Jacket I got at the Goodwill Outlet.)
-Metal leaf pendants (Some gold ones on Amazon, and one on Alibaba. They don't have the exact ones I used anymore.
-Chain for the top layer (I used chain from the Styled by Tori line I worked with last year.)
-Superglue. I used Aleene's 7800.
Start by cutting out a piece of leather in a half donut shape that looks good around your neck. I used a piece of paper as a guide to measure around my neck and make sure the shape was right. Then stitch two long pieces of leather to the inside of your half-donut shape for the ties.
Then you can start gluing the leaves all around the leather. I made my metal leaves overlap a bit.
Finish by gluing the chain around the top of the leaves. Let the whole necklace dry 24 hours and you're good to go!
