How to Make a Keyboard Necklace

You will need:

- Key of your choice off an old keyboard

- Beading wire or a thin chain

- Necklace clasp

- Crimping beads

What to do:

1.    Take an old keyboard you no longer use and select a key of your choice: the first letter of your name; delete; escape; power; command; home – it’s up to you!

2.    Turn the keyboard upside down and remove the small screws. Remove the bottom, then push out the desired keys with a screwdriver.

3.    If the keys are dirty, soak in soapy water.

4.    Pierce a hole on each side of the key with a large needle or tiny drill

5.    Sand the edges of the holes and back of the key with sandpaper to prevent scratching.

6.    Thread the chain or beading wire through each hole.

Attaching the clasp:


7.    Check the length of the necklace in the mirror then pinch the wire on one side with your thumb and finger to mark the right length at the back on one strand of the wire.

8.    Slide a crimp bead down to meet your fingers then slide your fingers down another 1cm. Squash the crimp firmly.

9.    Slide one side of your clasp down the wire then take the end of the wire and bring it back down through the crimp and the bead so that the clasp is sitting in a loop of wire.

10. Pull the wire tight, so that the clasp just sits tidily in a small loop. Squash the crimp firmly.

11. Repeat clasp instructions with the other end of your necklace.
