About this design:

For this necklace, I decided to use Lapis, Chrysocolla, White Howlite, and gold accents to accenctuate these great Tibetan focal beads.

  • 18" piece of 20 gauge wire
  • Headpins
  • Jump Rings
  • Round nose pliers

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Using the headpins, make bead charms with 4 Tibetan saucer beads, and a rice bead. Using round nose pliers, make a loop with one end of the wire, and string the beads on the wire in the order shown in the picture. When you've finished stringing the beads, make a loop with the wire at the end. Finish w/ a jump ring & lobster clasp.

    Love the way you have used the Tibetan beads in your design. When I first saw it I thought you had used memory wire.

    Considering the weight if all the Tibetan beads how do you keep the 20ga wire from bending when you handle it?

    I love this Necklace! I have always loved those Tibetan beads but never could imagine what to do with them…You did it! My only question is could one/you use Beadalon or Soft Flex instead of the Artistic Wire? Is there a reason that you could not?
