Pearl Necklace Tutorial

I decided to create a pearl necklace with some white and light grey beads I had got stored in my bead box. I only used these beads and some elastic thread to create this necklace.

Firstly, I laid out my beads on a board to check the layout of the necklace.



I then cut some elastic thread long enough for the necklace, then tied a knot at one end. I made sure I left enough thread untied so that I could finish off the necklace later. I also made sure that the knot was big enough so that the beads do not fall off.


I continued to thread the beads on until I reached the end. Then using the last of the elastic and the piece I had left over earlier when I tied a knot, to finish off the necklace. 


I cut the overhanging elastic thread and this was the finished result. This is a great necklace for somebody just starting out jewellery making and still looks effective. 



Bye for now,
Heather :)
