Love statement necklaces?  Rather than make one using fabric, try polymer clay instead!  It is lightweight and comes in so many awesome colors ready to mix and blend.  Check out these great statement polymer clay necklace tutorials. The first two are by Aniko Kolesnikova of My Mandarin Ducky.  Her Polymer Clay Organic Leaf Necklace  is awesome!

Leather Effect Geometric Polymer Clay Necklace
This one is particular colorful and is a great use of leftover clay.

The next three tutorials are by eleojota00 who writes the Spanish language  ElrincondeFri-Fri blog.  She either has English subtitles on her tutorials or no words are needed.  Some of her tutorials assume that you know the basics of polymer clay including conditioning. A pasta machine is a must have if you do a lot of polymer clay as it makes conditioning easier.

Chevron Collar Necklace
She really goes to town with this black and white chevron necklace  - I;ve not seen such a large application of this pattern in polymer clay before.  Stunning!

Polymer Clay and Chalk Pastels Statement Necklace 
This tutorial is another must see because she uses grated chalk pastels effectively to get a water color effect.

Polymer Clay Flower Necklace Tutorial
The white version of her simple but time consuming to do flower necklace is fit for a bride!
