DIY Necklace

Updated on August 6, 2012

I was searching around through my husbands tools to find inspration for a new craf. I found some round metal pieces I think are used for a roof?

I saw a great base for a pendant.

The metal was very thin and easy to make a hole in.

They have a bit of rust on them, gives it a vintage look. I like it, I spray painted a design through lace on another one and the rust color looked beautiful. ( I might post that one too in another hub)

      Very interesting project -- appreciated the picture of Marilyn Monroe (this year is the 50th anniversary of her death). There are so many things one could use on such a metal piece for -- thanks for the ideas! Best/Sis

      Yes, I realized that after the fact. Just a coincidence!
