Day 5! This project is so versatile, depending on the corks you save. From a dark brown cork to a stark black cork to a lighter neutral cork, this necklace can turn out so many different ways.
I know I do a lot of wine cork projects, but I really love this one.
- Drill a hole straight through your cork, top down.
- Bend the wire in half and place a single bead on one strand. This acts as a stopper so the remaining beads don’t fall off.
- Place other beads onto both wires, feeding both wires through the same end of the bead.
- Bend the top of the wire and insert the bent wires through the cork. By bending a small part at the top in half, this allows the wires to go more smoothly through the cork.
- Once the wires are through, place beads on the other end.
- Twist both wires into a loop, then secure the wires by twisting them around the base of the loop.
- Thread chain through the loop and secure both ends with a jump ring. If you’d prefer a shorter chain, attach a clasp to each end instead.
I like this black necklace because you don’t realize what it is immediately.
My favorite is a necklace I made out of a cork from one of my favorite wines. It has an armored knight riding a horse and it is SO COOL.
Really, I like them all.
What do you think? Would you wear it? I brought them to my craft fair thinking people would eat them up, but no one bought any. Who knows. I apparently haven’t a clue about my market haha.
