Instructions

  1. 1

    Take a power module and connect the battery cable and 9V battery to it. Be sure that the teeny on/off switch on the power module is switched to "on". Next, assemble the circuit: power + light wire + wire + pulse + bright led + inverter + bright led.

  2. 2

    Bend the light wire into a necklace shape. We made ours with three circles. We also bent the light wire to make a hook and eye shaped closure (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hook-and-eye_closure).

  3. 3

    Use colored duct tape to secure the light wire in place and add some flair to your necklace.

  4. 4

    Place the pulse + bright led + inverter + bright led on the front of the necklace. We used a needle and thread to sew the bits to one of the duct tape pieces.

  5. 5

    Make a small cardboard box to hide the battery and power Bit in. We covered our box in duct tape and placed it on the backside of the necklace.

  6. 6

    Power up that necklace and get ready to rave!
