Vintage Christmas Necklace, Holiday Project #8
4 ceramic holiday beads
14-18 assorted glass holiday beads
30 inch brass chain with clasp
brass headpins, eyepins, bead caps, and assorted findings
1. Start by making 10-12 assorted charms. Have fun combining the holiday beads in different ways.
2. Lay out the brass necklace in a straight line on your bead table. Start in the middle and arrange the charms so they are visually spaced along the chain. It's up to you whether you want charms all of the way up the necklace.
3. Start in the middle and open the wire loop of the charm and attach it to the necklace chain. Close the wire loop. Continue up each side adding you charms according to the layout.
4. Trim any excess wires before wearing.
