DIY Stella and Dot Pegasus Necklace

Stella and Dot Pegasus
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 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!

    What a beautiful necklace I bet it took ages to put all the leaves in place!
    Is it heavy?

    This is so amzingly beautiful! You are SO talented girl. I was just at a dinner and someone had that necklace on and I love yours more I think! But are all those pendants really pricey?

    Thanks for this post Stacie =) Got me all inspired to dive my hands into the tool box. It's edgy & chic! Hoping there's more ideas and creative infuses to come <3

    This is great DIY !! I see you live in NYC. How's that? I'm from Texas and slowly over the last 5 years have been moving towards the big apple. I'm about an hour away now, so the next step has to be the actual city. But my small town self needs a little positive encouragement. All I ever hear is "don't move to the city". So do you have any wise/positive words on the subject.?

    NYC is great! I looove living in the city. I'm from a small town as well and while there are extreme differences, it's really not overwhelming… As long as you don't go to the touristy spots that often. 😉

  • StacieGrissom June 11, 2013 at 2:27 pm

    I got 1440 for $35! And I probably used 150-200, so not too expensive! 😀

  • StacieGrissom June 11, 2013 at 2:27 pm

    It's actually not heavy! The pendants are really light. 🙂

  • Terri Jacobo December 27, 2013 at 2:21 pm

    wow so many leaf pendants! very beautiful, i think this may be one of my favorites. — and isn't Alibaba great too! i've been buying through them for over a year now and not only are there great prices but alot of the sellers ship free as well as sell small quantities. the only drawback is it takes a longer time to get to ya- again, love your jewelry stacie, u r very talented!

    This is a great project!! Absolutely lovely!
    I plan to try using chamois leather (happen to have some) with a threaded chain.
    For those of you looking for leaves, try Etsy, and look for recycled aluminum leaves.

  • StacieStacieStacie August 24, 2014 at 8:03 am
