DIY Nose Chain

For those of you who've been trying to hunt down a nose chain, you probably know that they're difficult to find. Even online, there isn't a big selection. The ones I've found at a local Indian mall were pretty, but they weren't exactly what I was looking for. I finally decided it would be easier to make my own. 

What you need:
  • Any kind of necklace chain (preferably lightweight)
  • Nose ring (you can also make a lip chain if you have a lip ring.)
  • Earring Hook
  • Metal loops (You might be able to find a couple on your necklace)
  • Jewelry pliers (I used regular pliers, but it's a lot more difficult.)
How To Make It:
  1. Measure out the length you want your nose chain. Using the  pliers, separate the chain to your desired length.
  2. Take the piece you need, and attach both ends to  the bigger metal loops.
  3. Attach one end to your earring hook and the other end to your nose ring. Make sure the ends are tightened enough where the nose chain won't come apart. 
For me, it didn't cost any money. I already had these supplies around the house. If you don't have these supplies, it could cost up to $20. 

 For my nose chain, I decided to use a plain silver chain and a rosary beaded necklace. This came attached together as one necklace. This was especially convenient, because I wanted to get two different chain lengths.


  1. looking good, a nice bit of diy is always cool to see =)

  2. This looks perfect on you! I always wanted to have a nose piercing only to wear it with a chain ^^

    1. Thank you! I've sen some nose chains that don't require a pierced nose even. Those are most common where I live.

  3. Oh my gosh that's so pretty! You're really rockin' it! :D

    1. Thanks! You could definitely make one for your new lip rings. :)

  4. I've got an award for you on my blog!
    Love the double chain by the way, very neat!

  5. Great DIY! It is always a great idea to make things out of other already existing things, I love to do that.

    I have always wanted to try a nose chain, I got my nose pierced when I was about 18 but my body rejected it, so I have never got to do it.

    1. Most authentic nose chains clip on to the nose, so you're in luck!

I'm Getting Married in a Month...and Musings about "Growing Up" with This Blog

Finally people have stopped asking me, "What are your colors?" But now they're saying, "It's getting close! Are you ready?"

I woke up a week and a half ago with tension in my temples and feeling like I couldn't get my heart rate down. I realized that it was probably wedding-planning stress. I've tried with all my might not to stress about the wedding, so much so that it's finally caught up with me, I suppose.

But, I made sure to de-stress over the weekend last week and get done what I could with my week nights and this past weekend. What will be will be.

I might be a married woman the next time I post here! That's an interesting thought considering I started this blog in high school. It's been less than a decade, but life has crammed so many changes into that short amount of time.

When I began this blog, I was an inexperienced teenager, enthusiastic about the Goth subculture, searching for kinship with others who shared my interests. It …

My First Time at a Goth Club

When I walked into the building for Ascension, a Goth/Industrial night, they started playing "This Corrosion." I was introduced to Goth six years ago when I listened to the song, so it was like the night saying "Merry Gothmas, Katie!" I'd been planning on going all week, but when Friday rolled around, I was so exhausted from spending the entire day getting a new car (my last one was totaled) and then visiting family with a long drive back. I came home and wanted to just take a nap, and after taking too long to decide, I got dressed and headed out the door. This past Ascension was the last one held at the Masquerade, a much-loved local venue, and I wanted to experience it before I left for West Virginia.

I'd known about Ascension for a while. One reason why I hadn't gone before this past Friday is because of being a student and having lived an hour away. It's a lame excuse. Aside from that, I told myself for years that I wasn't a cluby-type (alth…
