For making this jewelry you need to pick up the beads of the desired color. Necklace size depends on the size of the individual beads, so if you want a thicker decoration, choose the larger beads. It is difficult to say how many beads you might need to make cheap mother’s day gifts, but better to take with the stock.
What we need:
- Beads of the same or different colors
- Needle-nose pliers
- Adjustable rings – 2 pieces
- Calotte – special clamps for attaching the beads to the chain and masking knots
- Fishing line or heavy thread
Let’s get to work:
1) Cut 6 pieces of yarn or fishing line length of about 25 cm (10 in), and wear beads on it. We need to get the sequence of beads of length approximately 15 cm (6 in)
2) you should have 6 strands of beads which we will use to make 3 pairs, connecting the ends of two strands and securing the edges with calottes. Make sure that the knot was tied as close to the beads, then they will not hang out. Cut the excess thread.
3) Connect the 3 pairs of threads with the chain through the ring and then do the same on the other ends.
Tip: before you connect the other ends of the beads with chain, braiding them into a pigtail, to obtain the effect of weave.
4) the Chain should be divided into 2 parts depending on the desired length and connect both ends with a clasp.
5) Eventually you should get such necklace:
