About: Well I'm not a pro in any way, but I just love to make things of all kinds. I like rock and epic music, good food, norse mythology, biking, hiking, larping and so on... But there's one nemesis - Math. Yet I ...

So..

It looks like I become a little obsesed with picks lately :D

I got a new idea of making a jewelry, which can be also useful for something. I created this pendant from wire, which is holding a detachable plectrum inside.

Things you'll need:

- pencil and paper
- plectrum
- wire (you can use a different type of wire. I used really tight one (I make a chainmail armor of it..) so I coudln't make exact pattern I designed)
- pliers
- ring ( you will find here how to make one )
- leather or chain or something to hang a pendant on

Instructions:

Draw down your plectrum and design your pattern 

- cut a piece of wire and start forming it

- attach a metal ring and hang it on a leather string

- (you can slightly upgrade your design as I did, because of tough wire)

- You can also paint it, but I like the metalic look of the wire

- insert your pick into the pendant

- proudly wear it! (and when you meet a lovely lady just pull it out and play)


That's all! ;)

If you have any questions or ideas etc. just write a comment!

This is great! My wife is a bass player, and has a pick that was hand delivered via roadie to her by Mike Inez at a show. She carries it everywhere with her...this would be a great gift for her, so she can wear it and see it everyday. Thanks for the inspiration!

Where do you get both of those things. Well the wire I have a pretty good feeling you get a pick at a music shop

Well...I bought about 17kg (I made an armor O:-) ) of wire at my local ironmongery, but some bigger hardware stores should have it too. But I recommend you to use some softer wire than I did. And like you said, you can buy picks at music shop ;) But I ordered mine from eshop (it was a pack of 24pcs for about 2-3$). I wish you good luck! :)

That's nice! Does the plectrum go out easily? I should get myself a copper wire too !

my local music shop has these beautiful wooden plectrums. I find the feel of them lovely when in use, but I reckon they would also look beautiful in this. May make a fantastic gift for a musically obsessed friend or partner.

I must say thank you one more time. I made a wooden pick (https://www.instructables.com/id/Raven-beak-wooden-guitar-pick/) more for a decoration than for playing, and it looks just awesome wraped around with wire! (sorry for bad quality photo)

I was going to make one like this too but the thin wood I had on hand had the wrong grain direction and was a bit soft. I will split some maple to try it on tonight maybe.

My son loved the idea so here is what we made today. Because we used copper wire I soldered the rings closed for extra security.
