Introduction: Functional Guitar Pick Necklace

Picture of Functional Guitar Pick Necklace

There is a lot of guitar pick jewelry, but it is generally not designed to actually ever use the pick.  Fine for a groupie, but what if you actually want to play guitar....and you misplace picks like like a crazy person who's phobia is knowing where guitar picks are?

This necklace uses a large lobster clasp attached to the chain to hold the pick, so it can easily be removed and replaced.  By drilling larger holes in the pick, the necklace could even hold two or three at once.

  • Chain with clasp
  • 6 Seeds beads
  • 2 Star beads
  • 1 Crystal bead
  • Lobster clasp
  • 5 Headpins
  • Guitar pick

  1. Thread a seed bead on a headpin

    2. Use pliers to bend end into a loop
