Project Description:

With temperatures rising outside, I am definitely getting excited about Spring and Summer. I have several of these necklaces and think they are the perfect accessory for my warm weather wardrobe. The best part about this project is that it is perfect for beginners but, because the necklaces are so on trend, they are great for serious crafters looking to make something easy to make and sell - and so much fun to wear!

Shanna Steele, Aunties Beads Designer

Note: In this project, you will be using a strand of gumball beads, plus a a few extras from another strand. I designed an elastic bracelet - also called I Want Candy - to utilize the extra beads from this project.Author Shanna Steele

Instructions:


  1. Cut a piece of beading wire measuring about 24 inches. String a crimp bead toward one end. Run your wire through the loop on top of the heart portion of the toggle then back down through the crimp bead. Use your Crimper tool to secure the crimp bead. If using a crimp cover, use your chain nose pliers to gently press on the crimp bead until the seams meet.
  2. String a metal seed bead and a gumball bead followed by a metal seed bead and another gumball bead. Repeat this process until you have used 25 gumball beads with a seed bead spacer between each.
  3. String a metal seed bead, a crimp bead and another seed bead. Run your wire through the loop on the key portion of the toggle then back through the seed bead, crimp bead, seed bead and down through the last gumball bead strung. Crimp. Cut excess wire. Apply a crimp cover if using.
