This is such an easy necklace to make! It goes together fast and can be made for any girl...big and little alike!
Here's what you need: jewelry making tools--needle nose pliers, round nose pliers, and wire cutters, eye pin, 19" of chain, lobster clasp, 2 jump rings, 3-6 rounds beads of your choice. For most of these I used glass pearls.
Sorry, but I don't have any process photos.
The above photos are my adult version. The glass pearls are 12mm in diameter so only 3 will fit on the eye pin. Simply feed three pearls on the eye pin then bend the opposite end of the eye pin wire into a loop. Cut the chain in half and attach one chain to one side of the pearls--the loop in the wire. Then attach the other chain piece to the other side of the pearls.
For the necklace on my daughter, I used 6mm diameter glass pearls. The little girl's necklace is supposed to match the adult version so it also has 3 beads on it.
Here's another variation of the same idea:
As you can see, this one is made using hot pink beads that are also small: 6mm. I fit 5 beads on the eye pin and attached the chain. This necklace is for my daughter's Easter Basket. Once I had the beads put together, I bent it slightly to give it a U shape...makes it flow with the necklace differently than the straight across look of the pearls. If you'd like to attach a little charm like I did (the butterfly), you use a headpin and string on whatever bead you are using. Create a loop on the end and cut off the excess wire. Attach the charm to the loop on one side of the beads. And that's all!
