How to Make a Beaded Necklace
If you are into the bead craft at all, you will definitely need to know how to make a beaded necklace. Whether for yourself to wear, for your friends, your daughters, or for your customers, you will want to learn how to make a necklace especially since they are the most sought after beading pieces that people wear and will spend their money one.
Here is a list of the materials that you will need. These are fairly typical bead craft supplies, so you may as well pick them up now! You will need flat nose pliers, jewelry wire, a beading needle, beading threads, spacer beads, the beads of your choice, scissors, and craft glue. Now that you have all of the materials you will follow these easy steps to make your necklace.
1. Now that you have the materials you will need, you will get your beading thread and figure out how long you will want your necklace to be. Once you have decided on a length you will want to add about 3-4 extra inches so that once you add the clasps you will still have the desired length.
2. You can now begin adding the beads of your choice and can try different things until you are satisfied with the look of your beads. Here you can use the space beads in between your other beads to give them spacing in between each bead. You will also need a clasp and two bead tips, which are used to secure the ends of your necklace so that the clasp can be attached.
3. Once you have decided on the look of your beads you can put a knot on the end of the thread and use the scissors to trim off any excess thread that you may have. Be sure to make a good knot so that it does not unravel itself and becomes loose. Then you will add the craft glue to the knot so that it is secure and in place.
4. Now you will use the pliers to secure the clasp into a beaded hook so that the loops at the end of each one are joined. You will then use the pliers to close one ring over the other and will continue to do this until you have done all of the clasps.
Now that you have a simple step on how to make a beaded necklace, you will be able to do this for yourself or for business purposes. There are so many people that are into the bead craft hobby and are willing to pay for a nice piece of jewelry, so whether or not you are making it for yourself or not, it is a hobby that you can turn into a nice business venture.
