Spring Flower Necklace
This month's project from The Bead Studio is inspired by the beauty of the Spring Gardens. We all endured the April Showers and are rewarded with glorious May Flowers.
- Package 1.5" headpins
- 36 flower beads
- 36 4mm crystals
- 10 leaf beads w/ vertical hole
- 2 6mm round beads
- 2 crimp beads
- 4 6mm soldered rings
- 1/2 yard ultra suede cord, cut in half
- 1 foot 24g soft sterling wire
- 1 sterling lobster clasp
- 6" soft flex wire
- Round-nose Pliers
- Chain-nose Pliers
Place flower, beads, crystals, and 8 of the leaf beads onto headpins and bend pins to a right angle.
Trim wire to 3/8" and turn wire with round nose pliers to create a loop above beads.
Thread end of ultrasuede cord through a soldered ring and wrap tightly with 24g wire. Repeat with the second piece.
Crimp the soft flex wire to the soldered ring.
String one leaf bead and a 6mm round bead onto the soft flex wire.
Add in all the flowers, leaves and lady bugs onto the wire in a random order. You may want the the largest flowers in the center.
After all the flowers are on end with a 6mm bead and a leaf bead and crimp to the other ring.
Size cord to desired length and attach rings to the cord.
Attach clasp to one ring.
