My Post entry Link: http://www.diyfashiondiva.com/accessories/bow-shape-pearl-necklace-tutorial

This is another simple design I created with the same materials. I made this classy bow shape pearl necklace in less than 15 minutes. The cost is very minimum ( less than 5 USD ) but the result looks absolutely gorgeous.



The bow is really the focal point of the design and it is a bit more complicated to make. It took me a couple tries to finally get the desire shape and figure out how to connect the parts together is tricky. Other than that, the whole tutorial is an easy level project.

Using the pre-cut jewelry wire to hold the tiny white glass pearls, bend the wire into a oval shape as we insert the pearls and finally make a loop at the end to keep them in place. Duplicate the process one more time and these parts will become the two loops of my bow pendant. Use the wire to thread one big pearl in the bottom tiny ones above it then close it with the loop, again, make two of these so we can use them as the tails for our bow pendant.

Since I made all four parts of the bow separately, I choose to use a very simple method to connect them together- jump ring. A medium size silver jump ring will do the job because each part has loops at the end.

The rest of the necklace is simple using the same wire pearl techniques just like how I made the bracelet earlier. Here is the tutorial link for the earlier post: http://www.diyfashiondiva.com/accessories/wired-pearl-bracelet-tutorial

It turned out very cute.  It looks easy to make, too.  I'd never have thought to make a bow out of beads, but it works wonderfully.
