DIY Stone Pendant Necklace

Hello everybody!

Today I’m showing you how to make a stone pendant. It’s so easy and I like the rough look it has. The best thing though is that I made it from a stone I just found in the woods! I thought it looked really cool and decided to make a necklace out of it.

 

What you’ll need:

  • Some sort of flat stone
  • String
  • Clasp
  • File
  • Drill
  • Mod Podge (optional)

 

Step 1: Draw the shape you want

 

This was the original stone I found:

You can decide to keep the natural shape if you want, but I decided to go for a geometrical shape and drew it on the back with a pencil.

Step 2: Filing

Use a rough file to file the stone to the right shape. I used an iron file, but others will probably work as well. My stone was quite soft (for a stone) so the filing went pretty easy.

Step 3: Drilling

Dril a hole in the middle of the stone. A good idea might be to start with a small hole and making it bigger gradually. My hole is 6 mm wide.

Step 4: Glazing

This step is optional but I used a layer of Mod Podge to give it a glossy look. You could also add a layer of clear nail polish for the same effect.

 

Step 5: Adding a string

Add a string to the pendant. I decided to make a knot to keep it from sliding too much. Add the clasp and you’re done!

And that’s it! I think it looks pretty cool. What do you think? Let me know in the comments!
