Introduction: Make a 1/4 Inch Adaptor Necklace

Ever wanted to have an item that was wearable, stylish and useful? Well, here you have it. This necklace can be used for its original purpose and as a form of expressing your love for audio-related stuff .

All you need is:
A ball chain
A 1/8 Inch Female (3.5mm) to 1/4 Inch Male(6.35 mm) Audio Adaptor
Dremel/Cordless drill
A 4mm drill bit
A drawing pin or pointed knife

WARNING: depending on which brand of adaptor you have, you may have to alter the steps to suit it, so that the adaptor is still usable when drilled. Some adaptors have completely metal insides, and without a metal drill bit, this instructable won't work.

Step 1: Press Drawing Pin/knife Into Either Side of the Adaptor

First of all, press your pointy tool of choice into either side of the adaptor, as to leave a mark, similiar to a pilot hole. I recommend doing this near the top of the insulated part of the adaptor, but not too close to the entrance hole of the 1/8 inch jack. 4 to 6 mm is ideal.

Step 2: Drill

Drill a 4mm hole straight through the adaptor, going through the pilot dots.

Try to avoid the metal areas. This may take some trial and error.

Step 3: Thread Ball Chain Through and Wear

Grab your ball chain and thread it through the holes you just drilled.

Loop the chain around you neck, secure the end, and wear. Enough said.
Hope you enjoy wearing this as much as I did! :)

Suggestions welcome.

thats geeky with mad style!

Simple and cool, love it! ;D

When you drill the hole, does it go all the way through the adapter? If so, does the adapter still work?


yes and yes!

Where can i get a ball chain for free????

"end thingo" ~classic

HAHA, i just watched a Jerry Springer show where the guy's nickname was Dragon Boy :D. Seeing your username brings back memories from 5 minutes ago :) Awesome bling by the way! love the gold platedness

I think I'll be the one to suggest putting it in a vise or something to avoid a horrible drill injury from holding something an inch or less from the bit while drilling.
