Hey! I just bought some awesome pearls online. I want to make one of those floating pearl necklaces to go with some earrings I just made. Does anyone know how to make these? It looks fairly simple, but I don't know how to keep the beads in place. I am not too much of a bead person!

You can use fishing line for the necklace part.  I've never actually made one, but I have one, and the strands are just like fishing line.  I think that mine has the beads held in place with a little dab of glue.

Beading thread/fishing line, then just one bead crimp per bead, so the bead sits on it when you're wearing it.
