This domino features a simple wire loop.
I have been asked how to make a domino wearable, so this is a quick post showing you how I do it.
Many of the dominoes I now use in my
projects arrive pre-drilled. If I do
come across some old wood dominoes at an antique market or sale I do still take
the time to drill a hole through them.
Dominoes are quite thick, so a very thin drill bit will go right through
the middle as you can see in this picture.
I have used both a hand drill and a drill press to make my holes.
Making a domino wearable is easy with a
little bit of wire. In this picture you
can see that I have the wire running through my drilled hole and then I pressed
both ends flush against the top of the domino.
I wrapped one of the wires around the other
to create these bottom loops. I cut away
the extra wire. My wire is very soft, so
I was able to do this without tools.
With my round nose pliers I then made an
open loop and wrapped my extra wire around the lower loops.
After cutting away the last bit of extra
wire I have a nicely finished loop making this pendant easy to wear.
