Make Your Own Hardware-Store Jewelry With Copper Pipe + Rope
- 1/4" twisted polyester rope in desired color
- (5) 1/2" copper pipe fittings
- industrial adhesive
Cut a 20" long piece of rope.
Add First Copper Fitting
Thread one copper fitting onto the rope, and place it in the center of the rope.
Add Second Copper Fitting
Thread both ends of the rope into a second copper fitting.
Create Two Loops
Take each rope end and thread it back up through the copper fitting, creating two loops on each side.
Pull the rope ends taught.
Add Two Copper Fittings
Thread one copper fitting onto each rope end.
Add Final Copper Fitting + Glue
Using industrial glue, attach the ends of the rope into the last copper fitting. Put the left rope end into the left side of the fitting, then glue the right rope end into the right side of the fitting. This finishes off your necklace.
