In a hurry to get things made for Christmas I found myself making a necklace for a family member. It has been a long time since I've made jewelry. Nearly a decade. The last necklace I made was just before my mission. I had fun making this one. I'd do things differently next time, like actually try to space it properly. I used crimping beads to the freshwater pearls in place. I think I'll try some sort of glue in the future to make it more fascinating. I do like the look though and plan to make one for myself soon!
What I used:
1 Strand Freshwater Pearls
1 Package Crimping Beads
1 Magnetic Clasp
Flat nosed pliers
How I did it:
Attach two long strands of wire to one side of the magnetic clasp. I used crimping beads for this as well. String pearls with a crimping bead on either side on both strands and stagger the spacing on either wire. Crimp the beads on either side to hold the pearls in place using the pliers. Once you have the length you desire attach the other side of the magnetic clasp. So Easy!
