Repurposed Tin Necklace Set #2

This tin necklace actually reminds me of a shirt collar now that is finished!  It is the second necklace made from the tin container I got at Goodwill.

This metal tin just keeps on giving!

I used the lid of the tin container to make the first necklace.

If you have never tried repurposing a tin container, you will be amazed how easy it cuts with the right tool.  Wire cutters cut through the tin like butter.

I got a beaded necklace in a jar of Goodwill jewelry and played with ideas.

I drilled holes in the fronts and tops of each piece and threaded beads from the old necklace.

It’s easy to make a beaded chain with head pins, you just keep connecting the eyes.

My Goodwill jar of old jewelry had several chain necklaces.  I shortened the chain to 6″ with wire cutters and attached the beaded chain sections with jump rings.

I cut sections of the same gold necklace chain so a seed bead head pin would attach easily in the center of the chain  and swing with movement.

The fun thing about repurposing tin containers is that you can make something OOAK that truly stands out in a crowd!
