How do you make a guitar pick necklace without damaging it?
Hold the pick down on a flat piece of scrap wood and drill the hole. Don’t drill completely through the wood or you will damage what is underneath. Then go the local locksmith, key store, or hardware store and get a tiny keyring. It just needs to be big enough for your chain/necklace to fit through.
