This is a fun way to recycle vintage knitting needles found at estate sales, antique/resale shops, flea markets, even your grandmother's knitting basket. Aluminum needles, in 10" and 14" long and size 9 and higher are hollow, and can be found in many colors. The color on needles will not flake off during hammering, and any imperfections add character to the final design. There are countless ways to texture, stamp, add bead charms, and even add a monogram. Wear three of them in various needle sizes and colors, or mix them with other bangles. They're lightweight and a fun conversation piece!

    Fun and Funky and Frugal
    I teach jewelry classes and this looked like a good project to let my students relax in between more difficult fabrication ones. I made two green ones and would like to confirm that using size 10 needles is as high as you should go because the size 11 needle I used made the bracelet too wide and was stiffer to bend into the spiral shape. The narrower size of the no. 10 needle made a nicer and more comfortable shape. I added Swarovskis, a charm and a Keshi pearl on the two bracelets. I only added the texturing with the ball-peen hammer because I didn't like the additional "holes" in the design. Texturing the green needles gave them a much more elegant appearance. My students have already signed up for the class and are very excited; looks like I'll have to hit some garage sales for more needles!
