Jewelry components from the Mix & Mingle line make this design not only stunning, but also customizable. You can swap out beads to match your outfit! The Easy Keepsake Collar by Jenny Bernett Rohrs for Consumer Crafts really only takes two steps to finish, what could be easier?

Easy Keepsake Collar

Materials:

  • Darice® fire polished, Czech glass rondelle bead strand in aqua 1999-M200
  • Mix & Mingle silver charm spacer bead set BG3234
  • 3 Coordinating packages of Mix & Mingle beads in coordinating shades 1999-2744, 1999-2753, 1999-2727, 1999-2802
  • Tonal Duets™ “Romance” focal pendant with locket JMC0385T
  • Silver-plated mesh necklace 1999-2886
  • Gunmetal-finish head pin 1972-08GM
  • Wire Cutters 1893-05
  • Round Nose Pliers 1995-11

Instructions:

  1. Thread the faceted bead onto the head pin. Using your round-nose pliers, create a loop. Thread the loop through the bottom of the focal pendant. Then wrap the loop 2-3 times to secure it to the focal pendant.
     
  2. Then arrange 8-12 beads on either side of the pendant on the table, making a symmetrical design. Once you are pleased, string your beads and pendant onto your necklace. Since the holes are large, they slip right over the loop part of the clasp. Lastly, customize your pendant to make it personal you can add a photo, lock of hair, or even a prayer!

This is a great way to keep those special memories close to your heart by putting a locket on this keepsake necklace. You can make this necklace bold by finding a large locket with a great deal of detail or dainty with a small plain one. Add that special picture or something special to remember you by and give it as a gift or keep it yourself. This is a very fast necklace with some sentimental value. Use some great dainty beads or big chunky beads. The possibilities are endless.
