Turquoise Bead Necklace {Tutorial}


Turquoise bead necklace

I’m trying to broaden my horizons when it comes to this jewelry making business. I’m still no pro, that’s for sure but I really like this necklace. It’s a start, know what I’m sayin’?

I received these beads from my wonderful sponsor Wholeport. To order beads like this, go HERE. They’ve got some cute stuff so be sure and check them out!

I started off with a really long chain that I sort of just draped around my neck and then cut it to the length I wanted. I had these clasp things that look like a ponytail holder. I have no clue what they are for. I just disassembled it and attached the clasp to my chain.

Next I took some headpins…

Snipped them down and curved them around the chain. I spaced my turquoise balls about every four chains so that it would be even.
