Female High School Graduation Gift DIY K.I.T. Necklace
I made this vintage phone necklace recently. I am calling it my K.I.T. necklace. I think it would make the sweetest gift for a female high school graduate headed off to college. It would be a constant pretty reminder for her to keep in touch with family. I will be auctioning this one off soon at Tophatter with an opening minimum bid of only $7. Here is all you need to make one yourself.
Miniature Vintage Phone
(Check craft stores, Ebay, and any place that sells doll house miniatures)
4 Large Jump Loops
Needle nose jewelry pliers
Flat nose jewelry pliers
You will simply attach a large jump loop around the top of your phone. Before closing the loop with your flat nose jewelry pliers, add another loop for stringing onto your necklace chain. I made mine with a long fashionable antique bronze chain. Once you have your phone strung to your chain, simply add your other two loops and clasp to finish.
There are several different styles of miniature phones to choose from. Tip, you could use a miniature vintage wall phone, and glue a bail on the backside. I love the look of this vintage one, but you can find more contemporary ones too. If you decide to make a K.I.T phone necklace, I would love to hear about it in a comment below.
