Hex Nut Pendant

I bought a couple packs of hex nuts from the hardware store, hoping to make some of those bracelets I saw on Honestly WTF. See the DIY on those bracelets HERE.

Instead, I made a pendant out of the hex nuts!


You will need:

  1. hex nuts
  2. flat leather cord, or necklace chain link
  3. pliers
  4. jump rings

Arrange the hex nuts in whatever shape you’d like your pendant to be. Maybe it’s because I have Valentine’s Day blog posts on my mind, so this is what I came up with.

Using your pliers, connect each adjacent hex nut using some jewelry jump rings.

Continue until you get to the design you want.

I could have used a regular chain link, but chose to use a flat leather cord instead. I was being lazy. Either way, this is what I came up with! I can’t wait to make more necklaces, with pendants of other shapes.

Make sure to tag me on your own hex nut pendants! I’d love to see what types of hex nut necklaces and jewelry you guys come up with.

      You can buy from Divisoria for cheap. However, The Bead Shop sells them as well. πŸ™‚

    How do you attach the leather cord to the hex nut? I see jump rings but don't know how they attach to the cord.

      Sorry, didn't realize I haven't replied to this! You can either knot the cord on both corner jump rings. In this particular one, I threaded it through several jump rings (hidden in the back), to hold the heart shape as well.

    Looks great! Nice job on it. If I had jump rings that thin I'd definitely make this.
