Jewelry making can be a little intimidating, at least for me. However, with the right tools and a short tutorial, you can get started and make a simple statement necklace. Please take a look below and let me know your thoughts. This was a fun a simple project!
To make this necklace you need to know two things:
1: How to attach a jump ring to a bead and then to the necklace.
2: How to make an “adjustable knot”.
Use the right tools:
1: How to attach a jump ring
I used a very thin leather cord to make this necklace. Each end of my “curb” gold chain has an adjustable knot, therefore I’m not using a traditional clasp or other hardware. The necklace is pretty long and comfortable. Please take a look at my tutorial on how to make an adjustable knot on this blog post. Once you are on this page, please scroll down to view my tutorial.
I loved combining different materials and see how can I make a craft to be simple and enjoyable! Please let me know if you have any questions. All the materials I used can be found at Ben Franklin Crafts, Amazon or if you are in the Seattle area “Bead World” is a pretty cool store to visit.
