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!

Recent Concert and Club Outings (With What I Wore)

Staying in and getting more sleep is wise. I love sleep, and sleep is good for my health. But lately, the desire to bedeck myself in gothic clothing and become a creature of the night at local goth nights and shows has risen once again. Why? I love music, especially music that happens to fall under the "goth" umbrella. That's no surprise to readers of this blog. I like to dance to that music too. I'm not the best dancer (my mother once said I dance like Elaine from Seinfeld), but I do it nonetheless. I also like dressing up in clothing that's black, creative and perhaps otherworldly. I don't get to do it all day everyday because of my corporate™ job, so I've been relishing these chances.

My husband's been working hard to finish his doctorate these last few months, so I've had more time on my own in the evenings. I've been using this time to dress up and get out and even socialize with other folks in my local scene (which is relatively new to t…

Coming Soon: Updates to This Blog

I started this blog, Bats in the Belfry, Cats in the Attic, in 2011. I began this blog as a young person shouting my voice into the void, hoping others would respond. Like many young people who find themselves interested in an alternative subculture, I wanted another space to express and explore my authentic self away from the push-back alternative kids receive in the "real world." So, this blog became that space. For that I am grateful.

Since 2011, I've graduated high school and college, moved out on my own, got married, and have a different sort of life as a young professional in the corporate world. I've spent time in and out of the goth subculture proper. My heart still beats for all things dark and weird, but I am a different person than I was in 2011.

While I've grown as a person, this blog has stayed, for the most part, stagnant. I want this blog to grow as well, and I have some plans to help it along.

I work in marketing and communications. As such, I'…

Devil's Turnaround

Noonday Missionary Baptist Church's Cemetery is also known as "Devil's Turnaround." It is located along a little back road in Kennesaw, Georgia, and most of the graves are scattered in the woods. It is easy to miss, but some of the gravestones are visible from the road.

The cemetery has graves from the 1860's. I wouldn't doubt that some of its occupants were slaves at one time. Many say the land is haunted by malevolent spirits who hurl objects and make physical contact--shoving, scratching, and even biting visitors. I could understand why any lingering spirits might be upset: These grounds have been terribly neglected. Much of the graves are broken and toppled over. Some are barely visible through the overgrowth of ivy and weeds. People also say the root of the haunting may be related to rumored cult rituals performed on the property.

Located right by the cemetery are huge power lines (high voltage transmission lines). I could hear them buzzing from the roa…
