If you are looking for a beginner level, inexpensive, modern and versatile necklace to make, this copper tube necklace tutorial is just the project for you. With just a few supplies from the hardware store, you will have a trendy piece of jewelry that can be dressy or casual.
The inspiration for this project came from this awesome DIY project book:
My copper tube necklace varies from the tutorial in this book, but the outcome is similar. I love Krylon Dual for painting on, well anything, but especially metal. The coverage is great, and no primer is needed since it is built into the paint. Even with Krylon Flourescent, I didn’t use primer. The paint dries fast, so turning the tube over to paint the other side can be done in 15 minutes.
Lets get started!
1/4 inch inner diameter soft copper tubing
Super glue or E6000
Silver Toggle Clasp
Chain nose pliers
I love these end connectors for round braided cord like in this project. I picked mine up at Joann’s, and they are linked above in the supply list.
This necklace can be worn single, double or triple! Just make sure to vary the length of the rope if you are wearing more than one at a time.
Disclaimer: I received Krylon Dual Spray paint to try for this project. If I hadn’t, I would have bought some and done the project, sharing exactly what I shared because I already love this paint. All opinions are honest and mine!
