How to Make a Cool Spice Necklace

How to Make a Cool Spice Necklace

Throughout this DIY project I will show you how to make a sweet, interchangeable, spice vessel necklace. This way you can carry around your favorite herbs and spices whereever you go! Ever just want a pinch of salt on a slice of pizza? Or perhaps a dash of Oregano? Never go anywhere without your favorite herb or spice. I kind of made this up as I was going. I started with the those cool little jars, and kept asking myself over and over again how the hell would I attach the damn things to a necklace while still allowing them to come in and out for easy use…Finally the light-bulb turned on…ELASTIC BANDS!!!!! VERY TINY ELASTIC BANDS!!!

Supplies:

  • Cool glass jars
  • Dental elastic bands
  • Hemp string
  • Crafting wire
  • Scissors
  • Clasp
  • O-ring
Step 1:
  • Cut about 4 feet of hemp to work with.
  • Now cut this 4 feet in half to make two 2 foot pieces.
Step 2:
  1. Tie three Dental elastic bands together using a cow hitch (the next image shows a detailed diagram of the knot being tied using larger elastic bands).
  2. Repeat step one and connect both to the O-ring.

This is not the easiest thing in the world to accomplish. But once you’ve got it down, it’s not tooooo bad.

REMEMBER: The Dental elastic bands are very strong! You can stretch these babies far to help you get this knot down.

Step 3:
  1. Tie each piece of hemp to either ends using a basic Overhand Knot.
  2. Grab your Jewelry Wire, about 2 inches of wire per knot. Bend one end of the wire about 1/8-1/4 of an inch. You’re going to wrap around that wire to hide it neatly.
  3. It should look something like this.
Step 4:
  • Cut your hemp to the length of your choice on either side.
  • Thread the hemp through both Jewelry Clasp pieces and tie a knot.
  • Like in the previous step, wrap your wire neatly around securing the hemp.
  • Make sure to trim any access wire and hemp.
Step 4:

  • Now add your Cool tiny glass jars to the necklace!
  • Simply stretch out the elastics and insert the jar through until the elastic is tight around the jar’s neck.
  • Fill with spices of your choice.
  • I love having Salt and Pepper with me wherever!
