Don't Buy, DIY: Hardware Necklace
A little DIY project for your Sunday!:-)

I wore my version of the hardware necklace in the latest styling challenge for America's Most Stylish Blogger Competition.

I thought the outfit needed something rough and edgy - so I made this necklace after a trip to the Home Depot plumbing section.

  • How to make a washer necklace. Hardware Necklace - Step 1
    Step 1

    String compression nuts and couplings onto a dark gray satin ribbon.

  • Step 2

    Fold each end of your ribbon over a D-ring. (I used split rings because that's what I had..but D-rings are better!)

  • Step 3

    Machine-stitch to reinforce each end. (This necklace is heavy!)

  • Step 4

    Attach a heavy-duty lobster claw clasp and jumpring to one of the D-rings.

  • How to make a washer necklace. Hardware Necklace - Step 5
    Step 5

    Presto! In less time than it's taken me to write this, you'll have a gorgeous, shiny chunky statement necklace - for about $8 from the hardware store. (You may want to wipe your findings with alcohol to clean off any machinery grease/hardware store/raging testosterone smell from them.:-)

    Happy DIY'ing!
