A haunting depth that characterizes charcoal can complement your look and tastes. So wear it on your neck! Simple, easy and customizable to your unique preferences.
Step 1: Drilling
We’ll use a standard drill bit to go through this. I recommend using an awl to poke a starter hole, and avoid crushing the piece. Keep the hole near enough to the edge to use a jump ring.
Step 2: Sealing
An important step in this, otherwise you will be stained with charcoal and it could break. I used a spray on varnish/sealer, but any oil/plastic based finish or acrylic which adds a protective layer will work. Remember, this jewelry isn’t indefinite, but that’s the point.
Step 3: Enjoy!
Throw on a jump ring and then a cord and chain, and wear your once wood-now- carbon jewelry!
