DIY Gold Dipped Seashell Necklace

Tuesday, April 24, 2012

I have been really inspired by nature and outdoor elements lately (see coral inspired bangles here). Plus, I have this GIANT box of pointy seashells (is there a name for these?) that is just taking up space. This might be one of the easiest DIYs ever...but sometimes the easy ones (see this basic polymer clay bead tutorial here) turn out to be some of my most favorite.

What you will need:
  • A seashell. You can buy them at Hobby Lobby if you don't have an extra one hanging around.
  • Cotton cord for your necklace
  • Metallic or gold paint
  • A power drill (not shown)
Drill a small hole in the top of your shell.

Dip the end of your seashell into the paint. Let it dry.

Once the gold paint has dried, you are finished!

I think they just call them cone shells Lindsay but what a lovely way to wear them.
