Good morning! How are you doing? Hopefully doing better than Olivia. She’s been battling a cold and fever for the past two days, so hopefully some mommy time this weekend will be helpful. In between that, I had time to make a super quick necklace. Something simple and fun that I can just throw on and walk out the door.
- jewelry pliers
- copper chain
- various accent beads
- copper findings: jump rings, eyepins, clasps, cone bead
First, you want to make your tassel. For this, you’ll need to cut 10 strands of chain to the same size. The easiest way is to hang the chain on an eyepin and cut the strands to the same size, no counting or measuring needed.
Next, assemble the tassel. First, place all the strands into a medium sized jump ring and attach this to the end on an eye pin. Thread through the cone, add a decorative bead and finish by making a loop.
Next, connect the rest of the pieces of the necklace pendant. starting with the main bead flanked by two small copper beads.
A single decorative bead.
Finally, a metal decoration gets attached to a single jump ring.
Attach all of these together to complete the necklace’s pendant.
Thread the chain though the end jump ring and attach a clasp at the end.
Done! Easy as 1-2-3.

Have a good weekend!
