I have always found comfort and happiness when I was busy designing and creating. I have many interests and talents and often I am torn when deciding which art medium to work creatively in. Decorative painting is my first love; however, I also enjoy stenciling, jewelry making, sewing, crochet, needlework of all kinds, cooking, card making, faux finishes, decorating and gardening. Working in the craft and hobby industry for many years, I have enjoyed the pleasures of traveling, teaching, and sharing with others basic crafting how-tos! Currently, I am employed as the Marketing Education Director at Plaid. My career journey to this day, is still allowing me the gift of sharing with others the joys of crafting and finding their creative spirits! I hope that our creative paths may cross one day. Until then... happy creating!

Instructions

  1. Begin creating beaded stands of varying lengths. This necklace includes seven strands. To create a beaded strand, thread beading wire with a crimp bead, add a jump ring and loop beading wire back through the crimp bead. Using the crimper tool, secure the crimp bead and then begin adding the glass beads in the pattern of your choice making sure the loose end of beading wire is strung through the first couple beads. Finish the opposite end with a crimp bead and jump ring as you started.
  2. Create several strands of colored glass beads making a few slightly longer so they will wrap around the others when grouped together.
  3. When completed, group all the strands of beads together with a jump ring at both ends.
  4. Determine the desired length of the necklace and cut two sections of fat oval gold chain using small flush cutters.
  5. Add the chain sections to the collection of beaded strands using a jump ring.
  6. Add the leaves toggle clasp to the ends of the chain using a jump ring.
Tip: Try twisting several strands of beads before wearing your necklace to create a different look!
