Hex Nut Necklace
This necklace is so, so easy. You need:
(70) Size 6-32 steel hex nuts.
Needle and thread
A necklace clasp
Two 1/4" rings. I made mine out of wire.
Thread 40 hex nuts onto your ribbon bolt. Leave about 12" of ribbon on the end, and begin tying a knot between each nut, starting with the last nut you threaded. Repeat with 30 hex nuts for the shorter strand. Then tie the ends together at the last hex and hold it up to your neck to adjust the size. Loop the ribbon around your rings, and sew near the ring with needle and thread. I ran mine through my sewing machine, but I think it would be easier by hand. Trim ends and attach your clasp. You can also add a couple of inches of chain so you can adjust the size. A good idea if you're giving it as a gift.
