DIY Hardware Necklace


Who needs a craft store when you have access to hardware store and CVS? I picked up these flat corner braces (available in a range of sizes) at my neighborhood Ace Hardware. A few extra jewelry-making supplies, nail polish and hardware combine in this necklace that I've been wearing with everything. It's colorful, geometric, and a lot of fun.






Tools and Materials:
4 pack of 1-1/2" flat corner braces
Jump rings (6)
Clasp
Chain (12 inches)
Nail polish



Begin by painting the corner braces with nail polish. 


Apply a second coat, if you need to, after the first dries.


Once the nail polish is dry, connect the braces with jump rings.


Cut the chain into two 6 inch pieces. Attach to each end of the braces.


Attach clasp with jump rings to chain ends.
