Flashback Friday-House Key Necklace


Supplies:

  • 1 set of Home Sweet Home Beads
  • 1 small purple ceramic flower
  • 1 small ceramic sun
  • 1 small ceramic house
  • 1 Tropical bead mix
  • 12 4mm silver balls
  • 1 key ring approx. 3/4 inch
  • 1 silver clasp
  • 3 silver 1mm crimps
  • 30 inches beading wire
Instructions:
  1. String the key ring onto the beading wire. Slide one of the crimps over both strands of the beading wire. Crimp the key ring to the center of the beading wire, with the crimp you just strung on.
  2. On one side of the beading wire string a glass bead and follow it by a silver bead, a "home" bead, another silver ball, and a glass bead. Continue stringing another silver ball, the "sweet" bead, a silver ball, a glass, a silver ball, the last "home" bead and a silver ball.
  3. Before stringing any more beads on make sure you have the "Home Sweet Home going the correct direction to be read. Next string approximately 11 inches of the glass bead mix.
  4. Crimp one end of the silver clasp to the beading wire.
  5. Now begin stringing the second side of the necklace with a glass bead, a silver ball, the flower bead, a silver bead, and another glass bead.
  6. String a silver ball, the house bead, a silver ball, a glass bead, a silver bead, the sun, and another silver ball.
  7. Start stringing beads until you have the same length of beads as you did on the first half of the necklace. This should be approximately 11 inches.
  8. Add the second half of the clasp to the necklace and crimp.
  9. You are now ready to add you keys and get walking!
