Sleek and feminine, this vibrant necklace is as colorful as it is creative. It’s very simple and fast to make as well.
- around 40 headpins
- variety of colorful beads – throw in some Swarovski crystals to make it sparkle
- a clasp
Put your first bead on a headpin. Lay it aside.
Now put your second bead on a headpin. If it’s too long, cut it to about an inch.
Repeat the process you did for the second (red) bead, but before closing your loop, make sure it’s going around the wire of the previous (red) bead. Now this bead will go upward to form a zig zag.
Continue this process by alternating your various colored beads and crystals. The shape continues to be formed as you do more loops and connect to the previous bead — some going upward and some going downward to create a jagged effect.
Snip it in half and make a loop at the end; add the one half of your clasp. After your final bead on the other end, you’ll make a double eye pin; the loop of one end of your double eye pin will connect to the wire of your last bead, and the loop at the other end will go through the other half of your clasp.
As an added bonus, it even wraps around for a funky bracelet.
Enjoy making and wearing this unique and versatile piece!
