Hardware stores can become a wonderful source for necklace materials! Don’t believe it? Have a look at this one! The supplies are compression nuts, hose barb splicers, and compression sleeves. There are different sizes of each type, which lets you have variation of scale for your finished piece as well. Use a leather cord for the chain and finish the ends with cord crimps and a lobster claw closure. If you’re wondering if this necklace is heavy, it’s actually not any heavier than other statement necklaces. Overall, you can really play around with the pieces to create a modern looking design at a fraction of what it would cost you in a retail boutique.
