Make a simple necklace in any color you would like. Mix different types of beads of the same size to create a cohesive look. Even if you’ve never tried beading before, this necklace is simple enough to complete easily.
Gather your materials. I used only two colors for this necklace, but you could use any assortment of colors or beads you would like. 6mm or 8mm beads work well. I used a mix of pearls and bicone crystals and ended up needing about 24 of each type.
This is the beginning of your chain. I used jump rings in between my beads instead of just looping them through each other because the jump rings make the necklace move more fluidly. This way, it doesn’t get tangles easily.
Continue with your jump rings and make a chain as long as you’d like your necklace. Mine is quite long, so I didn’t need a clasp since it will just go over my head. I may make a few more of these of different lengths so I can layer them as well.
