Want to make something really different? Go for the transparent look! I've written about some neat ideas before, here are two more tutorials by Kate Puhala over on Brit + Co to get your creativity going. They both use clear vinyl.
The first one shown above uses studs. Doesn't look space age-y? Kate's second necklace has a scalloped edge. I like the draped chain effect.
You can also get a translucent look with plain shrink plastic. Illusion necklaces are also partly sheer. Check the following links for more inspirations.
