This necklace can be redone in many different colors and designs by changing the pearls into beads or small charms. I have made these into 10 totally different necklaces for family members. :-)
TIP: For keeping track of your wire, paint each wire tip at the bottom with a different color finger nail polish :-)
Gather all supplies. Lay out beads in order you would like them to be placed on necklace.
Cut beading wire in desired length of necklace plus 2 inches. You will lose approximately that much in the process.
Gather the three beading wire strands. Put on crimp bead and crimp the crimp bead.
Okay. We are going to go with the concept that the wires are called "A", "B" & "C". (If you painted you can refer to them by color).
With the first bead, string on all three strands together.
For your second bead, string only on strands "A" & "B".
For next bead, string only on strands "B" & "C".
For next bead string only strands "A" and "C".
You will start to see the pattern emerge.
Continue this process until you have completed stringing all beads and are at the end of the necklace.
Slide on a clam shell onto all three strands.
Slide on a crimp bead and crimp. Trim your excess wire after crimp bead without effecting the bead itself (especially painted areas if you do color code).
Take other end and insert jump ring into clam shell hook and close hook.
Yay! Finished product! It looks wayyy more expensive than it cost to make!!!
