DIY :: Dollarama Chunky Stone Necklace


I was at dollarama the other day and saw these plain wire necklaces and beautiful blue stones (they had multiple colors)  and immediately thought of a chunky necklace (at the cost of $2 bucks, even less if you consider you could make 2-3 necklaces out of all the material!!)

Lay your stones in the order you want them and squeeze the super glue across them

Put the wire necklace on top and make sure it is sitting in the glue.
I had the super glue hold up the wire to make sure it stuck to the stones
Now wait for it to dry! Just to be safe, I put a layer of mod-podge on top, since I already owned some to make sure it stays

    This is such a great project. I wish our dollar stores in the US had nice jewelry findings like those! I see i need to make a road trip up to Vancouver.

    I’m posting about your project on Dollar Store Crafts on 9/26! Thanks for sharing.

    So beautiful! How are they holding on, now that you’ve worn them a while?

    Has anyone seen these types of stones anywhere in the states? I feel like I’ve looked just about everywhere 🙁

    Cool idea. But keep this in mind that super glue becomes brittle over time and will lose its hold and the Mod Podge wont be enough to hold the piece together. And make certain that you clean the wire with alcohol to get any processing residue off of the piece.
