Handmade jewelry makes great gifts. I love making personalized jewelry for my friends, something more personal than a piece of jewelry from the mall. Today’s vintage salt shaker necklace is popular with ladies who love vintage, shopping at flea markets, shabby chic, rustic, etc.
I found these two individual shakers at Paris Flea Market. I thought they’d make very festive necklaces.

These individual aluminum shakers came from Ebay! I love the subtle texture on the sides.
Supplies needed for Salt Shaker Necklace
- vintage salt shakers
- annealed wire
- freshwater pearl, crystal bead, or other bead of your choice
- 2 pair pliers (I use one straight pair and one bent-nose pair.)
- round nose pliers
- wire cutters
- ball chain (20″- 30″)
- jump rings
- 1″ round brass blank
- metal stamps, alphabet
- hole punch
These are a couple of types of wire that I’ve used before:
I decided that it’s easier to show you what I do with the wire so I made this video for you:
My daughter came by and she allowed me to use her as a model so you could see what it looks like on.
She’s also wearing one of my statement necklaces. See… you don’t have to dress up to wear them. Chambray shirts are my favorite thing to wear them with, too.
