Have you ever ventured into the hardware store to see what you can find to create with? I was hanging with my friend Rebecca today and she came up with a simple yet adorable hex nut necklace.
It is so painfully easy but such a simple statement piece as well. It goes well with just a plain t-shirt or you can dress it up and add other necklaces with it.
They can be fine, light and simple, like this one, or bigger and bold like this Chunky Necklace made with Hardware Store Items or more sophisticated like this Mixed Metal Filigree Ball Necklace.
- Hex Brass Nuts #6-32 (found at Home Depot) $.98
- Small brass or gold jump rings
- Brass or gold clasp
- Gold filled or plated chain
- Jeweler’s Pliers
Gold prices are up right now so to find gold filled chain might be pricier than you want to spend. However, Michaels or Hobby Lobby should carry some gold plated delicate chain.
Cut your chain to 18”.
Using your jeweler’s pliers attach the gold jump rings onto the end of the chain.
Since the chain is so thin and delicate you could also use split rings if you want which would be sturdier.
Attach your clasp to one of the jump rings.Thread the bolts on the necklace and you are done.
Check it out layered with the Stella & Dot inspired tassel necklace.
I am loving the mixed metal look lately and adore these two pieces together.
Love hardware inspired jewelry pieces…
