Kai Necklace

About this design:

I love the bright colors of these new Czech Glass rounds, so I wanted to design something that would really show them off. I love how the metallic colors really pop against the white pearls. I made this to be choker length, but I think it would also look great as a longer necklace or a bracelet.

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

  • Czech Fire Polished Glass 4mm Rounds
  • Beading Wire
  • Potato Pearls
  • Crimp Tubes
  • Lobster Clasp

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Make a loop on one end of the beading wire and secure with a crimp. Slide on the pearls & the Czech glass rounds. I separated each color with 7 pearls. To finish, loop the beading wire through a lobster clasp & secure with a crimp tube.

    I love this necklace and the thought of creating several bracelets to stack with them. I also like the idea of being able to wear them everyday.
