Before you begin, ensure that you have all the necessary materials listed above. Choose Preciosa beads, pearls, and bicone beads in complementing colours to create your own unique design, the shades we choose are designed to reflect the Pantone Colour of the year Peach Fuzz. Also, make sure you have a flat, well-lit surface such as a dining table or work desk, where you can safely do your bead work without causing any strain on your neck or eyes. We recommend using a bead mat to keep all your components together.
Threading your pearls onto headpins
Thread each of your pearls onto a headpin. For this project we have used one pearl per headpin.
Top Tip - You may choose to get creative and thread more than one pearl onto a headpin.
Create a loop at one end
1.5cm away from the end of the wire, use the chain nose pliers to bend it to a 90-degree angle and then use the round nose pliers to coil that 1cm of wire back on itself, creating a loop.
It should look something like this when you’re done:
You will need to create loops on each headpin at different lengths so that they sit at different hights on the necklace.
You should now have 4 pearls on a headpin with a loop on the end of the headpin like the image below.
Opening a jump ring
To open a jump ring, grip it with two pairs of pliers, twist in opposite directions to create an opening.
Adding components to the Jump ring
Carefully add your looped pearls onto the jump ring, we have threaded them in the following pearl pattern 4mm, 8mm ,6mm and 4mm.
You can thread the pearls in which order that you desire.
Close your jump ring
Carefully close the ring by twisting the ends back together.
Congratulations you have completed the project!
