DIY Borax Necklace

This DIY could serve a lot of purposes. Maybe you want to just want to use it as an idea for a science fair project. It’s that cool! I created this necklace out of nothing but Borax, a chain, metal wire, and a pipe cleaner. It is really simple but has such a cool expensive look.

How to make your Borax Crystal

The first thing you will need to do is grow your crystal. This was so fun and I think you’ll enjoy it too!

Boil some water in a heat resistant cup. I used this measuring cup.

As that is boiling, form a loose ball with your pipe cleaner. I wanted mine pretty tight. You can make a longer crystal by forming more of a tube shape if you’d like too!

Next you will tie your pipe cleaner form onto a stick. I used another pipe cleaner because it was available but I’d probably suggest something more like a skewer if you have one!

Once your water has started boiling, turn the heat off and start adding Borax to the water. Add enough that it stop dissolving and you can see the water is no longer clear. Now you will dip your form in the water!

Make sure to keep your experiment covered as you let it sit overnight!

How to Create your Borax Crystal Necklace

Now your crystal should be formed! Take some gold jewelry wire and create a form around the crystal. I used a lot of wire because I really liked the look of the gold on the white.

Then you will take a jump ring and attach it around part of your wire and whichever chain you would like. I really love all the jewelry findings at Michaels!
