Project Description:

Bitty Bead Necklace Project

This RAW bead is so delicate and petite, it is in scale with the sparkle pink chain that runs through it. This bead can be made in larger sizes, but this design is the perfect size for that young lady or petite one!

    (CO-cross over- means to run the thread through the bead going in the opposite direction)

  1. Cut a 16 length of chain and set aside.
  2. Cut 2ft of supple max and string 3 bicones and let them fall to the center.
  3. String one bicone on your left thread and CO with the right thread.
  4. Drop a bicone on each thread, then one on the left and CO.
  5. Continue until you have threaded 9 bicones.
  6. String a bicone on each thread and place the center of the chain in the middle of the bead strip.
  7. CO into the middle bead at the bottom, thus forming the beaded bead and enveloping the chain.
  8. Run your threads through the sides of the work to reinforce the bead and back to where the threads can be knotted together.
  9. Run the threads back through the work before trimming with the nipper tool.
  10. Drop some GS Hypo Cement on the knot.
  11. Using the jump rings, add the trigger clasp to one end and just a jump ring the other end to complete the necklace.
