Wire Cutters- Note I would not recommend the pliers or wire cutters in this picture. I actually had to return them. Your best bet is buying them at Home Depot. I bought a set for $13 that worked much better.
Chain (I used an 18 inch one)
Jump Rings (not pictured)
Beads of your choice (make sure the holes are small so the headpins will stay in)
Step 10: Repeat steps 1-9 until your necklace is full of beads as desired.
- I put a larger bead in every other link and then two small beads in every other link.
- I used various sized jump rings to affix the beads to the chain so the beads fell at different lengths.
- I started beading the chain at about 4 inches on the left.
- The section I beaded was about 9 inches. You will notice that those dimensions make the beaded part of the necklace not centered. However, different shirts and clothes call for you to wear the necklace at different lengths, so you want to leave extra chain on one side so you can adjust the length as necessary (I left 5 inches on the right)
For those of you who are not crafty, I am selling these necklaces on Etsy and can be found here: http://www.etsy.com/people/PartybyNicole
