It has been quite popular to both buy and make the hex nut jewelry for quite some time and I have wanted to do it for quite some time. So, I thought I would finally get around to doing it.



Have any of you guys ever made hex nut jewelry?

I can see both men & women wearing this style!

I haven't used hex nuts as beads, but in one tool tech class, we sanded & ground really large hex nuts into finger rings.

Definitely! Even if a man wasn't too keen on wearing it with the ribbon, you could always substitute that for a leather strap.

Yeah, you could of course use them for that. I imagine that would definitely be jewelry that a man could wear.
