In the Middle Necklace
Picture Perfect Frames have become a staple in my designs. The endless possibilities they create just by changing the little piece of art you frame! I like using scrapbooking papers and then pick beads around the art!
Karla Schafer, Auntie’s Beads Designer
Prepare the pewter frame with your choice of scrap booking paper and follow the directions on the DG3 Gel or watch the DG3 Art Gel Collage Pendants Video.
1. For a 17 ½” necklace cut two pieces of beading wire, 10” and a 6” piece of chain.
2. Crimp one end of the beading wire into the end of the chain using the Magical crimp forming tool or the Designer crimp tool.
3. String a 4mm ss, and 5” of the seed beads, crimping the end of the wire into the closed jump ring.
4. Open the open jump ring and attach it to the frame and slip it on to chain.
5. Repeat Steps 2-3 except crimp into the trigger clasp, to complete the necklace.
