How to make jewelry from pencils?
1. First you need to make beads from colored pencils. You can use both hexagonal and round pencils. The approximate height of the beads in the photo is 7 mm. To cut beads, use a shallow toothed sharp hacksaw. Do not rush in the process of sawing pencils and do not apply excessive force. Thus, you are less likely to erase the paint on the outside of the pencil. 2-3. Do not worry if the cut of the sawed bead looks sloppy. With the help of fine sandpaper, you quickly bring the beads into a neatly finished look. It will be convenient to fix a strip of nazhdachki on the table and rub about it a piece of a pencil. 4. Now drill a through hole in each bead with a small drill. In order not to drill a table, use a wooden stand. After you have cut and drilled a small number of beads, it remains just to thread them on the thread - the beads are ready! Beads can be glued together and make a pendant, earrings and a brooch. Of sharpened tips of pencils, you can also get an interesting decoration, and quite functional - you can write and draw with pencils! The work is the same as in the previous version with beads. Hacksaw cut off the pointed tips of pencils, drill through small holes and thread.
