How to make a beaded necklace

I used to watch my mom wearing beautiful necklaces from my childhood, since then Necklaces become my love. Lately, I have been addicted to making my jewelry because I wanted something unique that reflects my style and I also discovered my creative side this way.

Making a beaded necklace is very simple and easy to learn. Anyone can be nimble-fingered making it. If you think you don’t have aesthetic sensibilities for it, no worries. One doesn’t need to be a Picasso to discover decent combinations of beads. The only downside of making these beaded necklaces is it can be addictive like I’m experiencing now. So before I get crazy totally, I’m going to tell you the simplest way to make beaded necklaces.

How to make a beaded necklace

Supplies, you need to make necklaces

To make the necklaces, it can be done only in a towel to lay out the beads and other tools. Here are the tools to make the beaded necklaces, make sure you have all the tools before you start making it.

  1. A beadboard
  2. Wirecutter
  3. Bead cord ( I will be using golden metallic flex wire)
  4. Crimped tool
  5. 2 chain nose pliers
  6. 5mm open jump rings
  7. 6mm closed jump rings
  8. 4mm rumpled bead covers
  9. Rumpled tubes
  10. Beads ( as you like)
  11. Spike pendants
  12. Pearls pendant

How To Make A Beaded Necklace

Before starting, it’s important to gather your all elements on the beadbord, this makes your work organized

How to make a beaded necklace

Step 1:

The most straightforward way to join spike pendants to a piece of jewelry is with jump rings. You will need to 6mm 18 gauge jump rings to match the ones that fit through the beat of the spike pendants, it’s a good choice. If you use 4.5mm jump rings, it’ll be small in size for your jewelry. However a 3.5-4mm 20 guage jump rings work well for earrings. To open the jump rings you have to use the nose forceps by gently twist one end forward and the other end back.

Step 2:

To string the open jump ring through the beat of the spike pendants, use the chain nose plier. And use it to close the jump ring.

Step 3:

After prepping the spike pendants, set it aside like the pearl pendants, I have already made which I’m going to use in the middle of the cord. Now I would like to use a gold soft flex, fine, which is an amazingly solid and adaptable stringing wire. This always holds up pleasantly and can handle the weight of the beaded necklace.

Step 4:

Its time to cut the specified length of the necklace with additional 6-7 inches. And now thread a rumpled tube on it, then later the clasp. String the stringing wire back through the rumpled tube and drug to fix, taking off a small tail.

How to make a beaded necklace

Step 5:

A crimped tool can be indeed more efficient and convenient for closing rumpled beads. Yet you can choose a combination of chain-nose pincers to close your rumpled tube. To bend or cut the wire, place the bead and thread in the other ellipse ( along with the shield) and seal the wire around the bead. As you can see its roll-up. Then place the rumpled beads sideways and placed it the first oval shape, the clamps around the rumpled beads are closed and the coiled beads are compresses in a round shape.

Step 6:

Pull lightly on it to make sure the wire is securely attached. Then cut off the excess wire. The rumpled tube’s edges can be quite itchy. I, therefore, recommend using a rumpled cover to hide the tube and make the clasp smooth and unified.

Step 7:

Place the crumpled tube on the open cream coating. Slowly and carefully close the rumpled cover using the chain nose pliers.

Step 8:

It’s time to start beading!!

Step 9:

If all of your elements are ready to use, this is the most fun and easiest part, certainly.

How to make a beaded necklace

Step 10:

Now as you have reached the end of your necklace, string another rumpled bead, and close jump ring.

Step 11:

Thread the cord through the rumpled bead and pull tight. Leave enough space on each end of the rumpled bead to cover them.

Step 12:

Cut off the additional wire and voile, and your necklace is ready to wear.

Most of the, you will have the extra beads which sliding on a shepherd’s hook make matching earrings. This not only reduces the cost or effort but also increases the compatibility set appeals.

These extra beads can also make a matching bracelet. Again, an ornament set has more appeal than a piece. This increases their value.

Conclusion

After practicing and learning these basics, you’ll quickly know how to get the most out of your jewelry. To me, if you can make it why to bother yourself to buy it, you can get the unique one.

I think it’s worth investing in basic jewelry tools and learning how to make them because the possibilities are truly endless. Other than that it is really fun. Jewelry making can be an event for girls with snacks and coke.

Gather Your Supplies

How to make a beaded necklace

Consider this the grown-up version of your childhood beaded necklaces. You might be asking why you can’t just string your beads together. It’s easier and faster, right? There are some occasions where using this technique yields better results than if you just strung your beads together. In this case, the knots between help keep beads from rubbing together. This is ideal when the beads you’re using are delicate or expensive. And if the necklace ever breaks, the whole strand of beads won’t come spilling off the strand. It’s also helpful during the process of actually making the necklace, too.

Here’s what you’ll need to try this on your own:

  • Beads
  • Bead cord
  • A needle
  • Bead clamps/clasps
  • Tweezers

Choose Your Cord

How to make a beaded necklace

Depending on what types of beads you’re using, you have to choose the correct cord. It’s not super complicated, we promise! There are two types of bead cord you can use: silk or nylon. Nylon might easier if you’re a beginner as it’s less prone to tangling and knots. Then from there, you should choose how thick you want your cord to be. This should be based on how large your bead holes are. It sounds self-explanatory, but it’s a fine balance between using something too thin or too thick. If you’re not quite sure, a variety pack of thicknesses might be best.

Keep color in mind as well: if your beads are dark go with a darker string so it blends in more seamlessly. The same rule applies to light beads; they look better with white cord. Or if you want, you can throw the whole matchy-matchy thing right out the window and opt for contrasting colors.

Start Your Necklace

How to make a beaded necklace

Cut a long length of string and thread your needle carefully. Choosing the right needle is really important—you want it to be thin enough where the needle will fit through the hole in the beads and have the eye be large enough for the cording to fit through. Add an end to the necklace like you normally would using a clasp and a clamp shell. Add your first bead to the necklace.

The Tweezer Trick

How to make a beaded necklace

Now comes the more difficult part: making the knot in the string between beads. It’s tricky because you need to get the knot as close to the bead as you possibly can. It takes a second to get the hang of it, but once you do it’s easy if you use this trick. Using your needle, create a simple knot, but before you pull the string tight you’re going to take your tweezers and grab the thread at the top of the bead very tightly and then pull the knot taut. It will start to close in on the tweezer, but using your fingernail you’ll want to push the knot as close to the bead as you can and voilà!

Finish It Up

How to make a beaded necklace

Now you just need to repeat that process until you’re happy with the length of the necklace. It’s a long process, but it can be very meditative once you get into the right rhythm. When you’re done, finish the necklace as you normally would but not knotting the end of the last bead. And you’re done! You have a strand that looks like it was professionally done.

Since you have seen the whole introduction of how to make bead necklace patterns, do you still think the necklace making ideas of bead necklace patterns are difficult to make now? i believe you don’t think so.

How to make a beaded necklace

One of the most often asked questions we receive from beginning beaders is what type of cord or string they should use to string their beads. Of course, it would be nice to be able to tell them to use string “X.” Of course, there are many different types of stringing media on the market. So, to decide which string to use, you need to consider what you’re stringing. And, in our opinion, no one type of string or cord can do it all.

Here is a list of some (and by no means all) of the stringing media now available and what type of beads work best with it.

A well-known classic for bead stringing, silk thread is most often used for pearls. Some beaders also like to use it with stone beads. We rarely use silk because we find that it frays easily. However, we know a few people who do pearl bead stringing for a little extra cash, and they use silk exclusively for their pearls. Silk is a higher quality thread than nylon. So, when you’re charging people to hand-knot their pearl strands, it only makes sense to use a good quality thread. You can purchase silk on large spools or cards with attached twisted needles. It also comes in a variety of colors (white, black, gray, pink, etc.) and sizes (#1-#8).

Nylon

When knotting long, stone bead necklaces, nylon works very well. Nylon can also be purchased in long rolls or on cards with attached needles. Since Nylon is a synthetic fiber, it doesn’t stretch or fray. We like the way nylon makes stone bead necklaces drape, even if you’re not knotting between the beads. Nylon also comes in different colors and sizes. Most often, we use size #4. It seems to work well with 6mm and 4mm beads, which we use a lot. For small beads, we use size #2.

Monofilament

We’ve seen this in craft stores labeled as “Jewelry Thread.” But, yes, it’s that same stuff they use on a fishing pole. When we first started string beads, we used 20 lbs. test filament for everything. Today, I’m a lot more experienced and, therefore, a lot more particular. However, we still think this is okay to use for those cheap $3 bracelets that are sold as impulse items. Most people who buy a $3 bracelet are going to wear it for a few months and then get tired of it. However, we would never string beads that could cut or stretch the monofilament such as hematite or crystals. Even a $3 bracelet should not break too easily. Though I’ve never had anything break using a filament, and I’ve got some old stuff we made ten years ago using it that we still wear sometimes, the cord will eventually become oddly shaped if stored twisted up. So, use your judgment. If you’re making a bunch of stuff to stick in your bargain bin, you might want to use it. However, if you’re making a necklace, you’re going to sell in a gallery, we would consider another type of cord.

It is a staple item in most seed beaders’ bead boxes. It comes in a good range of colors and various sizes. You can buy it in large rolls or tiny bobbin sized rolls. Most often, beaders use the smaller rolls for portability, and so they can have more colors. It must be waxed using either beeswax or a product call Thread Heaven. Though we seed bead, we’re not into nymo after being introduced to silamide. Nymo is used mostly for seed beads, but can also be used with pearls or heishi.

Silamide

This thread is also used with seed beads. However, it is pre-waxed with strands twisted together, so it’s convenient and strong. Originally, many seed beaders weren’t very impressed because the color selection was very limited. However, it now is available in all kinds of colors like pink, mustard, turquoise, etc. Another reason some seed beaders don’t like it is that it can be difficult to thread through a needle since it is twisted.

Coated Wire aka Beading Wire

Probably some of the best products in recent development for bead stringing are the various types of coated wire threads now available. You’ve probably heard of Soft Touch, Beadalon, Accuflex, and Soft Flex, which are trade names for this type of material. Depending on the manufacturer, there are various sizes and colors available. This cord works great with crystals, all types of stone beads, and even the thinner sizes can be used with some pearls. The smaller sized cords can be knotted on the end to be used with bead tips (clam shells), but they are most often finished off with crimp beads. This cord is also great to use when making illusion necklaces.

Tiger-tail

Before the coated wire came along, tiger-tail was the way to go when it came to heavy-weight beads such as hematite. It is also a nylon coated wire cable. However, it is much stiffer than the cords described above. It also comes in various sizes. However, it comes in only a steel color. It is very strong since it consists of many strands of thin steel wire. We still use it, though sometimes the other cord is so soft it can be difficult to use. But, we think it might just take getting used to it.

Leather Cord

It is great to use for those heavy necklaces that use stone donuts. Plus, it is attractive enough to be incorporated into part of the bead design without having to worry about covering it up with beads. Usually, you’ll find it in 1 and 2 mm sizes, and it comes in all kinds of colors, so you don’t have to use brown or black any more. If you are uncomfortable with using leather products, there are also a number of imitation products available today as well.

Waxed Linen Cord

It is often used for macrame designs. It doesn’t come in a huge assortment of colors and most often will be found only in black or brown. It is pretty strong since it’s waxed. If you want to make long necklaces with heavy beads, this would be a cord to consider.

Not that long ago, you could only find hemp available in one boring light tan color. But today, you can find it in black, blue, green, purple, etc. I’ve even seen it available in the craft department of our local department store. It is also good to use with macrame and is pretty strong. It works nicely with large beads and the colors can be coordinated well with polymer clay beads too.

Kevlar

This thread is used to make bulletproof vests. It’s often used in seed beads when weight is a consideration. It is very thin but only comes in a few colors. Yellow is its natural color, but I’ve also seen it in black. Another drawback is that it can’t be bleached white.

Believe it or not, this is just a smattering of bead stringing media available for you to use. You can find all kinds of bead stringing supplies from most vendors who sell beads under the Beading Supplies section of this site.

The Zulu are a large ethnic group in South Africa that is full of rich history and strong tradition. The Zulu culture has taken many of its important values and worked them into the beautiful beaded jewelry.
Zulu beadwork is full of hidden meaning and tradition that is not typically understood by the casual admirer. Zulu necklaces are worn to convey information about the wearer. For example, a Zulu necklace can communicate if a wearer is looking for a mate, what family the wearer has and where the wearer is from. Every Zulu necklace has some degree of romanticism attached to it. For this reason, it is not considered appropriate to accept a necklace from a close family member. There is also significant variety in the intricacy of the jewelry. Some necklaces are quite plain and others are very complicated. A simple Zulu bead necklace is easy to make and a beautiful addition to a jewelry collection.

Make a Zulu Bead Necklace

Cut a length of beading wire that is approximately 20 inches long. String one crimp bead onto the wire and position it almost at one end of the wire. String one jump ring onto the same end of the wire. There will now be one crimp bead and one jump ring at the end of the beading wire with approximately 1 inch of excess wire extending beyond these two items.

Using the needle nose pliers, take the short end of the wire and thread it back through the crimp bead. This secures the jump ring onto the wire. The crimp bead now has two wires going through it. To finish this end, use the crimp pliers to tightly squeeze the crimp bead around the two wires that pass through it. This makes a tight end to the necklace.

The necklace is now ready to be strung.

String the beads in an order that is pleasing to the eye. Continue stringing until the necklace is the desired length. Leave at least 2 inches of bead wire free for finishing the necklace.

The necklace is now ready to be finished.

String the remaining crimp bead onto the necklace. Next, string the remaining jump bead onto the necklace. Finish this end of the necklace in the same way that the first end was finished.

Use the needle-nose pliers to gently separate one of the jump rings. When the jump ring is opened enough, slip one half of the closure clasp onto the jump ring and use the pliers to close the jump ring again.

Repeat this same process with the other half of the closure clasp and the remaining jump ring on the other side of the necklace.

Check all parts of the necklace to make sure everything is tight and secure.

  • 30 beads, 9-10mm diameter (cream pearls in this case)
  • 30 beads, 6-7mm diameter (red pearls in this case)
  • 1 2-hole clasp (I have used a 2-hole clasp, but you would be able to use a 1-hole clasp as well).
  • 2 beading needles (to fit your bead holes)
  • thin pointy object (knitting needle, inside of a ball-point pen. )
  • superglue

How to make a beaded necklace Step 6 : Repeat step 3 and 4 until you have used up all your beads.

How to make a beaded necklace Step 7 : Secure the string of beads to the other side of the clasp. Thread each needle through the clasp, and tie the two strands together securely. Tie a second knot over the first knot. Use a drop of super glue on the knot to prevent it from coming undone.
