Happy Tuesday Gnomies!
Hope you all had a fabulous 4th of July last night. Today I have a really cute beaded necklace tutorial for you. This necklace is fun to make and easily customizable to coordinate with any outfit. Check it out!
- 2-4mm beads in different finishes and colors. You will need 8-10 beads for each row
- Jewelry chain
- Eye pins
- Necklace clasp and jump rings
- Wire cutters and round nose pliers
Start by stringing your beads on the pins in a pattern that you like. If you are making a four-row chevron then you will need 8 rows of beads, 2 of each pattern.

Next bend the ends of the wire at a 90 degree angle and then roll it up with your pliers to create a loop.
Attach the each pair of matching beads together with the pliers.
Now you will have 4 pairs of beaded sections making up the chevron pattern.
Use you pliers to attach the beaded rows to the chain. Space then apart equally. Let the free ends of the jewelry chain hang and use jump rings to attach a lobster clasp to the other end of the jewelry chain so that you can secure it around your neck.
