This necklace is made out of recycled pokerchips from a yardsale and recycled images out of a magazine.  The jewels are new.  The chain is from a necklace I bought new, but there were three chains that were twice aslong as this one in one necklace, so I can get 6 neck chains out of one necklace for a dollar, so I figured I was recycling in a way, getting more use out of one item.  I used glue stick to glue the image down, super glue to glue on the jewels and sparkles and clear nailpolish leftovers to coat the image to help protect it.  Any comments welcome.  Thanks for looking. (Sorry about the picture quality. I have yet to perfect that)

Great idea. I have so many left over poker chips from a clock I made a while ago and didn't know what to do with them. I never thought of making a necklace. How did you get the hole through the chip? The necklace looks so yummy...want to go get some icecream  Smiley

Thanks for your comment =0).  Lol, I guess I forgot one important detail, the hole lol.  I used a 1/8" drill bit with a normal drill, I took it slow, I didn't even need to clamp the chip down, just held it with my other hand, I made sure I had enough wood underneath so I didn't damage the floor lol.  The important thing here is, these chips are pure plastic.  I have read that some have metal on the inside.  So I am not sure what one would use to drill holes in one of those with.  So please be careful and have fun.
