Pearl and Tube Necklace

Product Details

What you’ll need:

•beading wire (I’m using 24 gauge Artistic Wire)

•104 x 4mm freshwater pearls

•26 straight tubes (I’m using 2 x 11mm tubes)

•13 x 2.5mm Swarovski crystals

•flat-nose and round-nose pliers, wire cutters

They will make approx 82cm long necklace. Please adjust the numbers of pearls and crystals according to the size of the tubes you use.

1) Let’s start by making a wrapped loop. Grasp one end of the beading wire with round-nose pliers, about 3cm from the edge, and wrap it around the jaw of the pliers to create a loop. With the loop securely grasped with the round-nose pliers, grasp the tail wire with flat-nose pliers, then wind it neatly around the main wire just below the loop for 2,3 times. Trim the excess tail wire with wire cutters, then squeeze down the newly cut tip to make it lie flat so that no sharp edge sticks out.

2) Add one straight tube, one crystal bead, then one more straight tube to the wire.

3) Following the step 1, make a wrapped loop again.

4) Make another wrapped loop and add eight freshwater pearls to the wire.

5) This time, before wrapping the wire, add the loop of the tube beads (that you made at step2).

6) Complete the wrapped loop. Now you have two sets of beads attached together.

7) Repeat the steps to add all the pearls and tubes until you reach the desired length.

And the best thing is that you can also wear it as a bracelet!
