The Stripes + Sequins 'Hardware Store Rose Gold Necklace' builds on a budding adornment niche. The use of hardware tools in the jewelry making field has become a hot topic for style bloggers and magazine publication teams, in large part due to the affordability of the design concept.

Stripes + Sequins curator Grace Atwood admits her love of stores like Home Hardware in this DIY post. There she hunts for unusual craft supplies, taking in the array of multicolored nuts and bolts.

The durable pieces look much like conventional beads, only with a rustic, no-nonsense feel. Black satin ribbon was used as the base for these brassy connectors which she delicately slipped on. Together the rows of string produced a chunky seven layered choker.
