I came across this necklace at Anthropologie and thought I might try to make my own version.
- Earring Wire
- Beading Wire
- Round Beads
- Focal Beads
- Wire Snips
- Needle nose Pliers
- Crimp Pliers
- Flat nose pliers
- Jump Rings
- Head pins
- crimp beads
I started with my focal beads. I strung a wire through it and curled both ends into a loop. I did this three times, once for the necklace, and one for each earring.
Then I started on the necklace. I strung two crimp beads, a jump ring, then back through the two crimp beads. Using the crimping pliers, I closed the beads.
Then I just strung the round beads with the focal bead in the middle.
Two more crimp beads and another jump ring.
Here's how the necklace looks finished.
Next I worked on my dangles. I threaded a single bead onto a head pin
Trimmed down the pin and bent it at a 90 degree angle
And used the needle nose pliers to create a loop
I cut a bunch of random segments of chain, opened up the loop, strung them on the chain, and closed the loop. I did a bunch of these.
I opened up the loop on the focal bead and threaded on all of the chains.
And here's my finished set. Total cost was less than $10 compared to $58 for anthro's, and mine came with earrings!
