Are you interested in incorporating recycled materials in to your DIY jewelry designs? Here’s an idea for you… a Glasses Chain made with a recycled headphone cord.
You will need the following tools and materials to make your Glasses chain:
1: Pliers. You will need your round nose pliers, flat nose pliers and cutting pliers.
2: A piece of cord from an old broken pair of headphones. I used this cord leftover from another project.
3: Beads with holes big enough to fit your cord. I used 10 of these painted wooden beads.
4: Two crimp ends.

5: Two jump rings.
6: Two rubber glasses holders.

Follow these steps to make your glasses chain:
1: Trim excess material from your cord using the cutting pliers.
2: Add the beads to the cord.
3: Fold one of the crimp ends around one end of the cord using the flat nose pliers.
4: Add the second crimp end to the other end of the cord.
5: Attach the glasses holders to each end of the cord using the jump rings.
Now your glasses chain is finished and ready to use. Perfect for windy spring days or for when you’re getting active outside!
Here’s another version I made using some broken apple headphones and some plastic heart shaped beads.
