How to make a customised dog tag necklace

Where to find pieces of old jewellery to repurpose

Half the fun of creating a unique dog tag necklace, is being able to reuse bits and pieces of old or broken jewellery. In this way, you can make a new, unique and beautifully designed silver dog tag necklace. What you will need to purchase To get started, you will need to buy as many blank silver tags as you desire to make. Blank dog tags can be purchased inexpensively from many online craft outlets or from most local craft stores. You will also need a tube of glue. Most standard tubes of super glue will suffice. What you will need to gather up Search through all your old jewellery boxes until you have gathered up enough broken or out of date pieces of costume jewellery. These will help to cover the front of your dog tag. A pair of tweezers and a pair of needle nose pliers will also come in handy when taking apart old jewellery in order to reuse it.

Disassembling old jewellery and using the bits and pieces to create a new dog tag necklace

Disassemble all the old jewellery that you gathered up. For example, if you have an old costume gemstone bracelet which is missing a few stones, take it apart link by link. You may have an ancient ring which is collecting dust in your jewellery box. While it is pretty, it is also missing a stone or two. You can cut the ring section off and save the top to use on a dog tag. Begin gluing your dog tag necklace together Select a few pieces of colour coordinating jewellery bits and begin gluing them to the top of your silver dog tag blank. Feel free to be creative. It is a good idea to overlap the pieces of jewellery as this will add depth to your design. When you are satisfied that your dog tag necklace has enough assorted bits of jewellery glued to it, set it aside and allow it to dry completely. Repeat the process to make as many dog tag necklaces as you want. Uses for designer dog tag necklaces Dog tag necklaces are popular with everyone. This makes them ideal as gifts. Whether you make dog tag jewellery either for yourself, as gifts or to sell for profit, you are sure to enjoy endless hours of creative fun.
