Make pendant using hex nuts

I love strolling through my local Builders Warehouse and constantly get ideas in the most unusual ways, but I do like this project by I try DIY which uses hex nuts to make a pendant. If you're a DIY fanatic like me, you might appreciate this one...!

 

hex nuts
flat leather cord, or necklace chain link
pliers
jump rings

Arrange the hex nuts in whatever shape you'd like your pendant to be. Maybe it's because I have Valentine's Day on my mind, so this is what I came up with.

Using your pliers, connect each adjacent hex nut using some jewelry jump rings. I could have used a regular chain link, but chose to use a flat leather cord instead. I was being lazy. Either way, this is what I came up with! I can't wait to make more necklaces, with pendants of other shapes.

If you are still feeling crafty and have some hex nuts left over, why not give this braided bracelet a go.
