Hardware Jewelry

Kid makers, do you want to take your jewelry game to a new level or make an awesome gift for someone you know?  This instructional video with Maker Rebecca will show you how to create one-of-a-kind necklaces, bracelets and keychains using simple materials you likely have at home.

All it takes is some hex nuts, washers or other hardware you can find in your garage, basement or toolbox, and some string, twine or ribbon.  And you’ll have some seriously tough jewelry you made yourself.  .

About Rebecca
I was born in the desert of Arizona, raised in the snow of Alaska, went to college with the autumn colors of Vermont, and spent a few years in the rain in Washington. I came to Pennsylvania to get my Master in Entertainment Technology degree, and also got sunburned, drenched and frozen along the way – sometimes in the same day. I love Pittsburgh, though, for all the same reasons I love making things: because it’s always surprising and unpredictable and exciting, and involves a little bit of everything. I’ve been working at MAKESHOP since it started as an experiment, leaving only for a few months to work on a 3D printing project overseas. My favorite things to make are stuffed monsters with too many teeth, souvenirs from places that don’t actually exist, and anything at all that lets me play with a loom or a laser cutter.
