weekend quick make, with hex nuts!

Came across a book on making jewelry with hardware store material one day, was curious about what people make with hex nuts, and spent an evening looking at all the different hex nut tutorials. Especially love this brilliant earring idea from Cafe Craftea.

Finally went to Canadian Tire on my lunch break one day and picked up the smallest hex nuts I could find.

I simply glued the hex nut onto a 4mm earring post with some E6000 and let it cure over night. Very simple. Made a pair without glitter because I like the slightly steampunk look :D

And for the glitter earrings, I glued the hex nuts onto the earring posts like the plain ones, then I filled the hex nuts with a bit of glitter nail polish with the help of a toothpick. Once the nail polish is dried, I applied a layer of Mod Podge Dimensional Magic to seal it, also with a toothpick.

Quite happy with how they turned out :D

Have a good weekend everyone!

  1. Trés jolies et originales ces boucles d’oreilles. Je ne sais pas si c’est réalisable,mais selon le même principe, je verrais bien une bague et un pendentif? Qu’en pensez vous ?
