DIY Hexagon Necklace

Hi Friends!

I love bold colors and simple design when it comes to my accessories.   I am not a fancy lady and do not require fancy adornments, but I do love creating interest. I whipped up this necklace one afternoon and have loved it ever since.

This is a really fun  DIY necklace project.    This hexagon necklace would work well with a t-shirt or a dress.  The hexagons  are made out of die-cut wood veneer so it is super lightweight.

Materials Needed

  • Wood Veneer  Shapes
  • Scissors
  • Tiny nail
  • Nail File/sand paper
  • Hammer
  • Needle nose Pliers
  • Paint ( spray-paint or any kind of paint in your desired color)
  • Jump Rings
  • Chain (or a necklace chain that you already have)

I originally purchased the pack of wood veneer shapes and numbers for my  2014 headband.  I decided to use the remaining shapes to create jewelry.  Wood veneer is thin and easy to cut with regular scissors.

I determined the size of the necklace pendant I wanted and cut the wood veneer. Then I used a nail file to gently file any rough edges.

Using a tiny nail and a hammer, I carefully hammered a hole through the wood for a jump ring. Be careful not to split the wood.  I used  2 coats of turquoise spray-paint to cover the hexagons.  Once the paint was completely dry, I inserted a jump ring  through the hole I created by the tiny nail.  With needle nose pliers I closed the jump ring and added a necklace chain.

I also made a red hexagon necklace that lays horizontal. To create this necklace you would need to add 2 holes and 2 jump rings. Then you would attach a chain to each jump ring and a closure clasp.

Really pretty and really simple. The red necklace would be perfect to wear on when you want to spice up your look.
