Soda Tab Chain Necklace





Introduction: Soda Tab Chain Necklace

First of all I would like to credit krazy glu with the whole concept. This is how to make a necklace with soda tabs.


Loads of soda tabs(100+ probably)
A large safety pin

Step 1: Start Collecting

You're going to need ALOT of soda tabs. I used 94 tabs, but my neck is really small so you should probably get as many as possible. I would say 100+.

Step 2: Cut N' Bend

Now you're going to need to cut the soda tabs so you can put them together. So take your multitool and select your pliers. I think the best place to cut is the little crease in the tab. Refer to the first picture for futher explaination on the crease.

Cut 4 tabs on the same side then bend each one. Try to bend the same amount for each one.

Step 3: Connect N' Bend

Now take 8 cut tabs and seperate them into two piles of 4. Slip one set of 4 into the uncut part of the other set. Refer to the picture for futher explaination.

Now bend the cut part back on the set you put through the hole.

Step 4: Make the Clasp

Add links to the chain until it will fit comfortably around your neck.

Now take your safety pin and your multitool, and cut the pointy part off of your safety pin so that you don't accidently stab yourself while putting on the necklace.

Put the safety pin through the hole at one end of the chain and put the other part through the other end.

Step 5: AND BAM!

Now you have an awesome necklace. Now go out and have strangers ask you about it.

    very nice. i would alternate the cuts to add more strength (one cut on the left and one on the right).


    mine's this..actually a different way of making it :) just drop by to share~ but i will be definately going to make one like d above ..thanks for d idea :)


    well they wont rust if u don't put them in water for a long period of time and do it more then once!! 

    Your comment leaves me perplexed.
    Since aluminium cans contain water or similar liquids, you can deduce that aluminum does not rust.

    well aluminum doesn't oxidize or if it does it takes alot longer than steel, so no they wont rust

    yeah, thats why they make pop cans from aluminium. because they dont rust with pop inside of them. :)

    Aluminum is chemically inert to natural substances. So soaking it in water for a few years, or leaving it outside in the sun will not cause any chemical or physical change to aluminum.

    A safety pin clasp? *gasp. I would use something more along the lines of a paper clip. Less "grabby", if you know what I mean.
