Love Necklace

Give the gift of love this holiday season! 

Supplies &Tools:
  • Needle nose pliers
  • Flush cut wire cutters
  • Silver plate chain 
  • 12 inch acrylic bead strand
  • Metal "Love" charm
  • Assorted 23 piece bead set
  • 9 pc plastic bead set
  • Toggle clasp
  • Metal head eye pins
  • Jump rings

Start by creating a chain of beads by using eye pins. This can be a difficult task for beginner bead makers. Try to find a pair of need nose pliers with ridges on the inside. Also, make sure you trim off the excess wire on each eye pin before you attempt to create each loop. Attach the "Love" pendant with jump rings on each side to the chain of beads. Attach the silver plate chain to the beads, use jump rings to attach the chain on both ends to the toggle clasp.
