DIY: Michael Kors Leather Nugget Pendant Necklace

Michael Kors Leather Nugget Pendant necklace

I first saw this Michael Kors necklace in a magazine, thought it was quite cute until I saw the price: RM899.00 or $195.00! Eek! How ridiculous is that?! Sure, there’s a nugget but it’s not even a pure gold nugget. It’s just a golden brass nugget which really, is just a substitute for the real thing. Sure if I had all the money in the world I just might get it. However, I don’t…and I won’t.

So here’s my less than $5 DIY for the same look:

As I didn’t know it was leather, I used faux suede. If you do use leather, use a flat strip with a very small width. Also, leather has a better grip in holding things together than faux suede so use that instead!

Here’s what you need:

  • Flat leather strip / faux suede
  • Stones that have sharp ends
  • Gold paint / gold spray paint
  • 2 gold crimping beads
  • 1 flat nose plier
  • Paper to avoid staining any surface you work on

As I didn’t have gold spray paint on hand, I used gold paint which I used during my high school days many years ago! I was very surprised it was still working well! Make sure you are working on a piece of paper to avoid staining any surfaces you may be working on 😀

Here I painted 3 different shapes of stones, I used the middle stone. I found these stones in my backyard back in Borneo. Make sure you know the difference between concrete and stone. Concrete stones actually break very easily! Paint one side of the stone and let it dry before painting the other side of the stone.

Once the painted stone is dry, make a loop around the stone and tie it!

Take one crimp bead and attach to one end. Take your pliers and crimp it! Do the same for the other end of the string.
