Step 5: Place the LEDs

Picture of Place the LEDs

Another magic is to use a double-sided tape as a third hand to hold the shape and LEDs in place while soldering. Use double-sided tape to hold the outline in the place. Put all the LEDs into the proper positions while the outline wire is still on tape and solder them. Keep in mind that the LEDs have electrical polarity. They need to be placed in the correct position in order to lit. Take a look at my template there is a graphic explaining how you need to place them.

Tip: Do not use different colors of the LEDs on the same necklace. Different colors have different voltage properties so you would end up only with one color lit.

Tip: Double-sided tape will lose its stickiness when heated. So you most likely have only one try to solder the LED to the brass.
