I've always found this necklace I made kinda boring, but it's nice.....I think if you substituted the beads that I used, you could come up with something a lot more fun. Sure enough, this one ended up with my friends mom.
3 strands of Softflex Wire
Mid Size beads (black in my pic)
Small-Medium Bicone Beads
Silver Seed Beads
All you need to do is crimp the 3 wires on to a clasp or jump ring, and then add one of your largest beads (all 3 strands go through the one bead)
String a seed bead on to each strand.
String a bicone on to each strand.
String another seed bead on to each strand
Add another large bead (again all 3 strands go through this one)
