So everybody who’s anybody is in bed and fast asleep…. so what am I doing?? Trying my hand at making necklaces. The first I’m really gonna go get some more beads and redo it, the 2nd…. I love!!
Everything you need
Supplies: Your choice of beads. I used black and silver glass beads (about 21 total)
Organza Ribbon, 7/8″
A handful of jump rings, a lobster claw hook ( I got a little package of silver findings, had everything I needed plus.)
Needle nosed pliers
needle, small enough to go through the beads but big enough to thread the ribbon through
Cut a yard of the bigger ribbon, cut that in half, so you have 2 pieces 1 1/2 feet long.
Thread one side through a jump ring, knot. (a)
Thread the one through a jump ring attached to a lobster claw hook, knot, (b) set both aside till the end
Cut a yard of the thinner ribbon, cut in half, knot one end (c) so you have a loop.
Thread 1 bead on one side of the loop, knot on both sides of the bead, as closed to the bead as you can.
On the other ribbon thread 2 beads, tie both ribbons together, knot.
follow that pattern, alternating the beads on the ribbons.
The finish was fun….. I looped the bigger ribbon through the loop of thinner ribbon, back up to the jump ring and knotted it. nobody will bee it anyway. I’ll try to figure out a better way of doing it.
This is a better tutorial…. and the original
The 2nd one I love, but I didn’t take any pictures of the making….. (duh) I like the bead better and I didn’t use any ribbon. Embroidery thread, and finished it by knotting it around a jump ring.
