About a year ago, I posted one of Thanks, I Made It's most popular tutorials yet, DIY Hardware Store Bracelets. I still wear my bracelets often, especially now in warmer weather as my wardrobe lightens and brightens up. However, I got to playing around with some of my jewelry materials, and I thought the bracelet base would make a fun necklace.
I converted my original DIY bracelet by removing the original clasp, attaching either end of the bracelet to a length of chain with the original jump rings. I used some snake chain I had on hand, but you could use any kind you wanted. Play with the lengths for a longer or shorter necklace, and add your choice of clasp. It's up to you-- customization is the key to DIY!
