Deathly Hallows-Inspired Necklace

Made up of a triangle, circle, and vertical line, the Deathly Hallows symbol is one all Harry Potter fans are sure to recognize. Made to resemble the Elder Wand (the line), the Resurrection Stone (the circle), and the Cloak of Invisibility (the triangle), the Deathly Hallows sign represents three legendary objects that allegedly, if united, would make one the “Master of Death”. This symbol appears several times towards the end of the Harry Potter series and has become a mark several Potterheads now wear with pride.

If you want to sport this sign and join the ranks of Death Conquerors, you can create your own Deathly Hallows necklace with only a few simple materials! I made two different versions…so if you don’t like the free form look of one, you can reference the tighter look of the other.

 

Materials:

  • Long Gold Metal Chain
  • 2-4 Gold Jump Rings (or make your own!)
  • Gold Wand Charm
  • Round Nose Pliers
  • Wire Cutters
  • 20 Gauge Gold Wire

 

Directions:

  1. OPTIONAL: I didn’t have jump rings in the correct color for this project, so I just made my own using the 20-gauge wire. There are TONS of tutorials on YouTube for how to make your own jump rings. If you want to make your own, make 2-5 jump rings before jumping in to this project so they’re all ready to go.

  2. To make the circle, I used a bottle cap to act as a template for the wire. I just cut a small piece and fed it into the inner part of the bottle cap to form a circle. Twist the two ends of the wire around the circle to secure it in place.

  3. For the triangle, I created a small loop on one end of the wire, then drew a small triangle on a piece of paper. Line up the wire along the template to form your triangle, then feed the wire back through the loop to secure the triangle. Trim and turn the remaining wire into another loop to make it easier to attach it to the necklace.

  4. Once you’ve created your circle and triangle, add jump rings to both pieces, as well as the wand charm. This step is also optional, but I made a larger jump ring and attached all pieces together so the chain only had to feed through one ring.
  5. If you want a tighter look, you can make the circle and triangle out of one piece of wire. For this option, I made the circle first, then wrapped the excess wire around the circle to form the triangle, securing it at the base of the circle. Attach the circle and wand charms to one jump ring and feed the chain through the ring.
