The step-by-step process of making a beaded chain necklace is discussed in the following points:

Material Required to Make Chain Beads:

  • Beads of glass mixed with dark purple beadsand plastic turquoise andpurple beads. Their number will depend on the length of the chain you want. Normally you can use:13 shiny glass beads (bronzed purple), 13 medium plastic pearl beads (dark purple) and 27 medium plastic pearl beads (turquoise)
  • Pliers
  • 52 eye pins; one for each bead you use

Process Of Making the Necklace:

The process of making a beaded necklace is:

  • Now cut the edge of the eye pin so that only a small amount of it (the size of your thumb) sticks onto it.
  • Now clamp the two pliers just above the bead, and bend the head pin so that it makes an angle of 90degrees to the post.
  • Now, reposition the pliers to the head of the head pin, and roll back to create a loop.
  • Before closing the loop, hook it through the loop of another eye pin.
  • Now take a turquoise plastic pearl bead, and slide it over the eye pin that is attached to the other eye pin of the bronze purple glass bead.
  • Make this loop 2-4 times, hooking on the next eye pin forming a pattern of: bronze purple, turquoise, purple pearl, turquoise, bronze purple, and so on.
  • This pattern is repeated until you complete the whole chain. The length of the chain depends on however long you want it.
