As part of backyard birthday celebrations, in addition to tie dye festivities, my friend Angel led a beaded necklace craft.
Ooo, there were so many beads to choose from.
I ended up chosing matte black, white, cream, pinks, and gold. My go-tos.
For this project we used Miyuki Delica size 11/0 beads, beading wire, bead glue, and spring loaded jewelry connectors (the black line in the photos). For mine, I went freestyle, but you could also plan out a pattern.
Tahdah! I made a long necklace. It could also be a 5-wrap bracelet. It’s super delicate and fancy! 🙂
I’m always hesitant to use jewelry glue in my jewelry projects. I’m not fond of the smell, how if it gets on your skin it hurts, and I never trust that I will actually make my project sturdy for wear. But thanks to Angel (adult supervision!) I feel good about this project.
