Homemade Beaded Necklace


Updated May 10, 2012
(9 Votes)


Don't spend big money on jewelry when you can make quality jewelry at home. This craft from Jacquard Products provides instructions on how to make a bead necklace.


  • Clear plastic tubing from hardware store
  • Ball chain, leather, fabric or ribbon to string the beads
  • Jacquard Piñata Inks - various colors
  • Jacquard Pearl Ex Stamp Pads
  • Rubber stamps
  • Scissors or tubing cutter
  • Can of compressed air
  • Metal washers


  1. Start with about a 3" piece of plastic tubing.
  2. Place a very small drop of Piñata at the inside edge of the tube. It is important not to put too much Piñata inside of the tube.
  3. Tip the tube down and roll the ink around the inside of the tube. You can use a shot of the compressed air at the opening of the tube to help spread the ink.
  4. Repeat with as many colors as you like.
  5. When the ink is dry, you can cut the tubing up into beads of whatever length. Either before or after you cut the beads, stamp onto the outside of the bead with Jacquard Pearl Ex Stamp Pads. It may be easier to ink up the stamp and then roll the bead onto the surface of the stamp.
  6. Thread the beads, alternating with the washers, onto whatever material you choose. You can use ribbon, ball chain, leather or fabric.
