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 :-)

    Step 1

    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.

    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.
