A Huge Ice Cube Bling Necklace

Photo on 12-28-21 at 11.03 AM #4Nobody gave me a huge diamond chain for the holidays this year, so I had to make my own. 

I used the typical cooler method for directional freezing, and

  • Put a clear plastic box with holes drilled in the bottom in the cooler. The holes allow trapped air/impurities to be pushed out below it. 
  • Put this box on a salsa tub as a riser to keep it off the bottom of the cooler so that the trapped air had somewhere to go.
  • Hung a "gold" chain dipping into the middle of the plastic box from the handle of the cooler.
  • Let it freeze for about 3 days until it was just below the level of the plastic box.
  • Chipped away at the extra ice so that there was just the box, then slid the big cube out of the plastic box.
  • Looked good wearing it.
