Xmas Lights Necklace

Project details:

in favorites

I thought the bicone Czech glass beads were the perfect shape for Xmas lights. I found these tiny bead caps that finished them off perfectly. I think this necklace can be worn all year long. It was simple and easy to make, just turn on some Xmas music and get started.

Supplies you’ll need:

You will need: •Czech glass bicone beads •Gold head pins •Gold bead caps •14 Jump rings (depending on how many charms you make) •Gold Chain 1-2' I gave two option in the product list •Gold Rollo Chain •Recommended tool: Round Nose Pliers I made 13 light charms, you may want more or less.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1

Slide a bicone bead then a bead cap onto the headpin. Create a small loop with your pliers, wrap the excess wire around the base of the loop twice and trim. Create as many charms as you like, I made 13.

See Tip: Wire Wrap a Charm

Step 2

Use the jump rings to attach your charms to the rollo chain. Lift it up to see where you need to fill in with more charms. Trim your cable chain so it doesn't show.

Step 3

Add a jump ring to the top of your charm bundle so you can attach it to your chain necklace.
