My first Craftster craft, and it's a necklace! Usually I sew...
Anyway! Found this awesome cloisonne plum blossom, in a soft orange with a green center, and at the same time, came across these little square green glass beads, with an orange lining (sounds wierd, but they look really cool) which matched amazingly. So...
The main bead was hollow, with gaps between the petals, and I was instantly inspired. Mini tut:
4 metres thin waxed cord
2 med jump hoops
1 clasp(I used a spring hoop)
1 main bead with large hole
8 complementing smaller beads
Measure the cord to make four strands, and cut. For each side, thread a jump hoop on two strands, and fold them in half, with the jump hoop at the folded end. Make two of these. Take all ends of all four strands and thread them through the large bead, and tie them all into a knot, at the length you want your necklace to fall. On the ends after the big knot, thread a small bead on each strand, varying the height of each bead, and knot after each one. Trim all ends. To wear, attach the spring hoop to one of the jump hoops.
Hope this is clear!
