My first thought was safety pins, if you found the right beads to string on the pin part to camouflage the pins and the right beads to string between the pins all the shiny metal would blend together.

I mean the only tricky part of this design is the verticle beads with a perpendicular holes running through them on either end. which is where the pins would world. Maybe someone with a more traditional beading background has the technical name for that specific kind of bead though? I dunno.

But I think any soft metal bead (or pipe from the hardware store, cut into beads) can probably be easily drilled through to fit on double strands like that. If you are going to drill through beads though, see if its the kinda thing that is two halves stuck together, like you know a metal/plastic barrel bead with a seam up the side.. don't drill through the seam or the bead will just pop in half at the seam

You can probably fabricate the little triangles that connect the necklace and chains with a saw and some thin metal.

Looks like the major components are donut bails (the long bits), regular bails (the bits along the outside edge) and daisy spacers (the bits along the inside edge).

Good luck!
