DIY Wire Necklace

This handmade necklace is both inexpensive and simple. You’ll want to practice with the wire first to get the hang out it, but you’ll be a pro in no time at all.


  • Spool of brass wire
  • Matching metal chain
  • Needle nose pliers
  • Lobster clasp


  1. Draw out the word you want to write or print from an existing cursive font.
  2. Bend the wire to match your printed word. Don’t fret if you mess up; wire is cheap! Make sure you bend a loop at each end to adhere to your chain, then trim.
  3. Hook the word onto your chain and add the clasp.
