In this lesson, we'll show you all the tools and materials you'll need. This project uses chain-nose pliers, round-nose pliers, and wire cutters. If you’ve never used them before, we’ll show you what they are and how to use them. These are the three basic tools for making jewelry, so you’ll use the skills you learn in this lesson for all kinds of jewelry making projects. You will also learn how to make wrapped loops to attach the beads to the chain and how to put a clasp on chain. Skills you'll use a lot in jewelry making!

Making jewelry like this is fun and easy! Once you get started, you’ll be hooked like we are! Before you know it, you’ll be making jewelry for friends and they will love finding out you made it yourself!

Make Your Own Dangling Bead Necklace!

Choose a selection of 20 of the same-size beads. We'd love to see your beads. Upload a picture of your beads! (This is optional, but we'd love to see them!) The only requirement is that they are the same size. You can choose a color merge like the ombre blues and greens we used. Or you can choose all one color or two alternating colors. The choice is up to your own creativity!

Your finished necklace should have at least twenty dangling beads. Of course, you can add more if you like!

Your finished necklace should have nice even wrapped loops - so try to wrap the wire around the bead in the danging component the same way for each bead. A consistent look will give your necklace a professional finish!

We love to photograph our jewelry outside. Natural light is easy and beautiful! But don't shoot in direct sunlight--it kills your color. We recommend photographing your necklace outside in the shade. Maybe hanging on a fence or laying on a wood deck.

We can't wait to see your necklace, so be sure to upload a picture of your necklace!
