Hardware Store Necklace Tutorial.

April 27, 2011 7:52 am I was really inspired by a couple of these necklaces that I had seen on the runways this year.

Hardware Store Necklace Tutorial

After taking a closer look at them I knew I could make something similar. Here’s what you’ll need from your local hardware store: -varying sized washers -bike chain -gold metal wire I also needed extra gold chain. First, tie a ribbon to make your bike chain connect. This will be the strong base of your necklace. Spray them gold on both sides. Now, attach a piece of your chain to the bike chain and begin stringing the washers by wrapping around them once. Keep stringing them until you get the heaviness you want for your look. Look how great the completed project looks! (my sister, Francesca was here from Arizona so I got a fresh faced model!) This entire project cost me about $7 and took me about 20 minutes. Who knew bike chains and washers could be so chic?
