Hex Nuts Rock!
I don't know why but I really love Hex Nuts! When I was a teenager I did my first Hex Nut Earring (which is one of my favourite earrings and I still wear it).

The other day I went to a hardware store and I found very cheap hex nut packs. I had to buy a pair! Since I bought them I've made a lot of jewlery with them (which I will upload progressively).

By the way, in my language, hex nuts are called "females" and I like to wear them as a feminist symbol: a hard and resistent female ready to rock!

    Step 2

    Take a ring, open it and insert two nuts. Then close the ring.

    I'd recommend to close and open the rings with two pliers. It's easier than using only one.

    Step 5

    To make the earrings I used 5 nuts and an earring hook. But the actual number depends on your particular tastes.

    You only need to insert a ring in the last nut and insert the earring hook instead of a nut. And there goes your earring!

    Step 6

    In case you want to do the bracelet:

    On one end you have to insert a ring (where the lobster clasp will be attached to close the bracelet).

    And on the other end, insert a ring and a clasp.

    And here goes your bracelet!
