Picture of Wine Cork Necklace
Make a necklace charm out of the cork from your favorite wine bottle.

Step 1: Choose Your Cork

Picture of Choose Your Cork
Pick the cork you want to use. It should have a compact design that doesn't wrap too much around the cork else you won't see it well on your necklace. I'm going to do the weather vane for this necklace.

if you want to string the cork on the chain, or several,  drill tthru the cork with a bit just a hair smaller than the chain.   the get a piece of brass hobby shop tubing just big enough for the chain to slide thru.  push the tubing thru the hole in the cork (you can lube it with bees wax) drop the chain thru the tube and pull the tube out leaving the chain inside.   the cork will expand, grab the chain,  and stay fixed in position (you don't want it to slide on the chain because it will put out little bits of cork dust like brown dandruff.

Wow, and to think I though cork was only good as a bottle stopper and cork flooring. Interesting concept, will have to show this to my fiancee when she gets home. Maybe I'll surprise her and use the cork top from the bottle of wine we had when I proposed :D
This is cool ... I'm going to see what my woodburner will do to the cork. Maybe it will add a nice dark edge? Then again, it might turn it into a cute little pile of ashes...

I like it - wine-nerd jewellery.

You'll be able to spot fellow wine-nerds as well; most people will say oh, cool cork necklace, but wine-nerds will say ah, so you like the wines of the Whassis Valley? I find them a little fruity myself...

Nice idea. I have billions of corks because they seem like some thing useful to keep - maybe I can make some of these out of them!
