Hey, all! As promised, I’ve got a tutorial for a simple beaded necklace for ya!
chain (I used 17″)
an eye pin (mine was 5 cm long, often used for earrings)
3 small beads (mine were 8mm wide)
also a closure, not shown in this pic…oops!
Needle nose pliers and wire cutters
So first put the beads onto the eye pin…then trim it down about 1/2″ from the beads.
With the pliers, bend the wire to the side…
then grab the end of the wire and loop it around…
Squeeze the wire loop closed tightly…
Then with the wire cutters cut down the chains to (mine were 8.5″ long) and grab some jump rings. (you’ll need 4 total, I dropped one so it missed out on it’s photo op)
Then open one of the jump rings with your pliers and attach one end of the chain, and also one side of the beads, then close the ring.
It’ll look like this now! Then do the same with the other chain.
Grab your closure and the other two jump rings…
And attach them to the ends of the chains.
Then you’re all done!
