Marble Fidget Necklace




This necklace design I came upon while trying to make something conducive to fidgeting but also beautiful. The marble can be spun in its cage of wire while being worn. It is also very easy to make!

Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Materials and Tools


-A glass marble, not too big or too small

- About 10-13 inches of easily bendable wire

-A chain



-Something to cut the wire, even regular scissors could work

-Needlenose pliers (Optional but recommended. I do not use them in this tutorial)

Step 2: Bending the Wire Around the Marble

Once you have cut your wire into about 10-13 inches of length, start bending it around your wire. At first the marble will want to pop out. Keep wrapping the wire in one continuous line around the marble, then deviate from that line to better enclose the marble. Make sure to leave some areas un-wrapped with wire so fidgeting is easier. Finish with a loop with which to attach the chain

Step 3: Attach the Chain

This should depend on what chain you have. Just insert it through the loop you made and re-attach the ends. I had to cut my chain because it hung too far down.

Step 4: You're Done!

That is all! Its a pretty simple necklace to make, takes about 5-10 minutes total. Thanks for reading!

    shmmm. . . I've got a bunch of marbles right here! now where did I put that wire?

    Thanks! When I first made one, I actually made two and gave one away. The recipient described as "Its like a fidget cube but beautiful". However it doesn't spin very much due to friction but rubbing the marble can be relaxing.
