Recently, I came across a Louis Vuitton lock necklace selling for $225 at a store. The lock on the necklace was a standard lock that comes with many LV bags. I happened to have a spare LV lock laying around, and thought that this would be a wonderful DIY to share with everyone.
You don't need many materials to make this, and it won't take you gobs of time like the sparkly clutch.
1. Louis Vuitton lock with key
2.Needle nose plier
3. 37 inches worth of gold chain - This will be broken out into 3 different lengths. 2 lengths each at 15 inches long and 7 inches for the 3rd length.
4. Some round metal rings - At least three of them must be at least 6 mm in diameter (big enough for the lock and key).
5. Necklace clasp
Please observe the chain lengths that we used. Due to the size of the lock, this necklace must be long to achieve a balanced edgy look. :)
That's it! You've got yourself a trendy Louis Vuitton lock necklace!
Oh, and if your Louis Vuitton lock is dull and tarnished, put some metal or brass polish on that baby as demonstrated on how to restore a Louis Vuitton. It'll be gleaming in no time!
Hope you enjoyed this! Apparently lots of people have been selling these DIY necklaces. They can be found on Etsy as well for around $160. Here are some of our favorite variations of this necklace:
