Build a Necklace

Here are step by step instructions for putting together a necklace like this one. 

You need a chain, a bead that can dangle and some beads. I like to use 3-5 beads but have used 6 here. 


Put the beads on the chain by starting with the bead you want to be at the top of the necklace. 

Then put on the pendant/dangle. 

Next, thread the chain back up through the beads. You’ll be starting with the bottom bead. 

Finish threading the chain through the beads and then shake them down to make the chain have even lengths for fastening. 

All done! Even though I use this method fairly often, I always have to think about the order. Hope this helps someone!

    Love it, I do this all the time too! I’m too cheap I guess to buy an actual fantasy necklace!

      That’s exactly why I’ve been making necklaces too! I’ve never felt like taking the plunge on the fantasy necklace. When I was at the concept store in Singapore, the sales lady was wearing the one with the fairy and it was quite fantastic though. I think I’ll make it a #beadgoal. 😀
