step 1
Cut your chain to the desired length, I recommend around 18 inches. I made mine about 17.5 inches then plus the closure, it comes out to just over 18 inches.

step 2
Take your pliers and your jump rings and add one jump ring to each end of your chain.

Be sure to add your closure to one side of your chain at the same time.

step 3
Layout your chain and determine the center of your chain, this is where you will want to place your first and center spike.

Unscrew your first spike and place the screw part through your chain and into the spike.

TIP: While you are screwing in your spikes, hole your chain as flat as possible. If the links get twisted in the spikes, you necklace wont lay flat and it will be really stiff.

I placed my spikes in every other link, in opposite directions.

Continue working out from the center in both directions until youve added all your spikes.Spike Chain Necklace DIY SpikesSpike Chain Necklace DIY FinishedSpike Chain Necklace DIY Close Up

This Spiked Chain Necklace DIY has a great high low quality to it. It can be worn very subtly with a feminine blouse or in your face with a T shirt and leather jacket. Go ahead and be a little edgy! You only live once!

TIP: I recommend using “loctite” to hold your screws. I havent tried it yet, but Im going to go get it and Ill let you know. They claim that it will hold the threads on nuts and bolts to keep them from coming un done from wear and friction. Im telling you this because I wore this necklace out and as I was walking I felt a spike fall down the inside of my shirt! Not cool. The other plus with “loctite” is they say its only a medium hold, so you can remove it with hand tools. So if you decide you want to use your spikes somewhere else later you can take them out with a screwdriver.
Let me know if youve tried this before and how it works, Id love to know. I plan on getting some and I will definitely post and let you know how it goes.

  1. Loctite is a MUST!
    My dad rotated my tires once and didn’t use loctite on the bolts. The wheels FELL OFF MY CAR the next week. A necklace isn’t quite so dramatic, but still; better to be safe :). And you’re right, using loctite isn’t like using glue to secure these suckers; they’re pretty easy to remove if you use some muscle :)

    • Thanks Brittany!
      I’m so glad you shared this with me. I’m glad to know it works. I’m going to go get some now! :)
      (I hope you were ok when your wheels fell off!)
