I found this great tutorial on making a multi-strand necklace and how to get those sometimes pesky lengths just right! The author of this great tutorial, Kris, on the How Did You Make This Blog — Luxe DIY, explains how she uses a bowl to get the lengths just right and provides a list of supplies needed. Below are some photos from her post and a link to the post itself.
Kris shows the step by step process and I think it is done very well! Here is a list of supplies that she recommends.
– crystal beads – I’m using 5 styles of Czech polished crystals with a green iridescent finish
– beading wire
– jump rings
– needle nose pliers
– round nose pliers
– wire cutters
– flexible tape measure
– mixing bowl or other cylinder that’s the same circumference as your shortest strand (more info below)
This would make a great necklace for an evening party, holiday party, or just anytime you want a little sparkle in your life! You can even choose to use different beads and metal chains to create different looks… go ahead tap into the creative you. It is so much fun!
Have a great day creating something beautiful!
