A fellow bead friend turned me on to this chandelier bead necklace design.. If you have basic beading skills... it's super easy.

This design uses a bead cap as the base and you link chain all around the bead cap to create the tassel. At the end of each tassel you add a decorative bead using a flat head pin. Let me know if any one wants more detail.

Wow, wow, wow!  Super snazzy!  Thanks for sharing.  Did you attach the chain to the bead cap with jump rings?

Yes, I used jump rings to attach the chains to the bead cap.. and you can vary the lengths of chain which makes a neat effect as well.

The only downer I noticed was the weight.. the necklace can get kind of weighty. I made this for a friend and she doesn't mind the weight at all, so I think it's just preference. I also found that it's nice to make the chain necklace adjustable for varying neck lines.

I prefer a heavier necklace. I don't like them moving around much. ^_^

Great job! I like that a lot! I'm one to fidget with my jewelry when I wear it (too much caffiene), and I'd love to wear something like that. Smiley
