OK so I realise this isn't exactly an original idea as there is plenty of Lego jewellery recons on here but I though I would share anyway. I had a few extra pieces left over from my Lego Viking Ship (which I am in love with by the way) so though I may as well put them to good use.

I put a hole through one of the pieces, put a metal ring through it then just used some red anchor thread for the actual necklace. Unfortunately I found I am allergic to the clasp I used to hold it together so I'm going to have to rethink that because I have a wonderful rash on the back of my neck now haha.

The best thing is that all the other pieces can be interchanged around so you can have a new necklace everyday! Fun Fun.





And now because I am a camera whore, an action shot.



I realise that because of my tattoo it all looks a little busy on my chest but I still love it. And yes my earing is a Lego sword. Ah so many uses.
Comments/Criticism welcome.

I've been wondering what to do with those swords for ages. Ace idea! They are just pushed through like regular taper/plugs? I'm a 3.5mm - 4mm so they should fit ok I think.

Oh you've made my day:0)

Yeah I just shoved it straight through. I also have a little axe that I use sometimes aswell. The pirate swords look better than the one I have because they are all bendy and cool.

I tried it the other night but my holes are too big and the swords felt loose:0( Such a cool idea though!
