Necklaces, bracelets and earrings made with Legos are beyond easy to make and a great way to reuse your favorite childhood toy. :D

The last picture shows a huge batch of necklaces I made in one day!

I have a ton of necklaces up for sale in my etsy shop if you'd like one: making jiggy on etsy!

Step 1: What you'll need...

Picture of What you'll need...

For the earrings:
  • posts + backs (sold in bulk at most craft stores)
  • Legos of desired size
  • Aleene's Platinum Bond 7800 glue OR E600 glue
Before someone asks - I recommend these glues because I've used them before in other projects (Playstation controller button earrings!) and I know that they work amazingly well to adhere metal and plastic. The bond will last for years - I made the controller button earrings over 6 years ago and they're still fine. Plus, both glues dry clear. :)

For the necklaces:
  • drill with a 1/16 bit
  • jump rings (sold in bulk at craft stores)
  • your choice of necklace chain (sold in bulk at craft stores)
  • clasps/closures for chain (also sold in bulk)
  • small selection of pliers
The necklaces allow for more customization, as you'll see. :)

Im making a buisness with these and i think they could rake in some money!

To be honest, I haven't had much success with them. I've been selling the necklaces on etsy for 10 months now and hardly any takers... maybe 4 or 5 sold? Right now I've got them listed at $5 just hoping to get rid of them. :P

The earrings sell like crazy at craft fairs, though, if you do $2-3 a pair.

I think the internet is just too clogged with lego jewelry!

Hi, I've been wanting to make awesome LEGO jewelry for a while now, and I wondered if you might have any specific tips on drilling plastic?

I Have Just One Word For You :

Ha, thank you!
Looks fun. What if you wore two or three and connected the legos while you were wearing it?

That would be really cute, I bet. I added legos to the larger white one while I was making it and it looked really neat.

I'm also thinking about using one of the larger flat base legos as a necklace - you could really customize that. :)
You could really go crazy and make huge Lego Bling!
Gold plated Lego bricks!

Great project! 5 out of 5!
