Long Link Necklace

By: Bead Studio

Long necklaces from The Bead Studio are all the rage this year! 36" to 72" are fun and versatile. You can wear it long or wrap it a couple times or many times for a layered look. Mixed materials are the trend. We made ours with Amozonite, Shell and wood beads linked with chain. This is a great look for Spring and Summer. For a variation try weaving ribbon through the chain.

Materials:

  • 36" - large link chain
  • 1 - Toggle Clasp
  • 1 pkg - 2" eyepins (they are firmer than the 1.5")
  • 10 - faceted amazonite ovals
  • 4 - faceted amazonite rectangles
  • 10-small mother of pearl ovals
  • 5-large mother of pearl ovals
  • 10 - 6mm wood beads
  • 10 - 10mm wood beads
  • Wirecutter
  • Round-nose Pliers
  • Chain-nose Pliers

Steps:

  1. Cut Chain into 4" pieces. We ended up with 8 since the links were large, we lost a little with each cut.


     
  2. Open one eyepin gently to the side and attach it to the end of the chain.


     
  3. Add a bead to the eyepin and make a loop on the other side.


     
  4. Attach another eyepin and continue to add beads and eyepins creating a chain effect until you have achieved your desired design.


     
  5. Make a loop with the last eyepin and attach it to another piece of the chain.


     
  6. Repeat as desired until all the chain is used.


     
  7. Add clasp with an eyepin and a bead, or another series of beads if you desire extra length.
