Project Instructions

  • 1
    Use six bird beads, six ceramic 6mm beads, and six eyepins to make the first set of connectors. For each connector, slide a ceramic bead onto the eyepin, followed by the bird bead. Cut the excess eyepin so that 3/8” remains. Use your round nose pliers to make a loop.
  • 2
    Repeat step one using six ceramic 8mm beads to make the same connectors. You will then have a total of 12 connectors.
  • 3
    Start with the pendant, and build the right side of the necklace. Attach one jump ring to the pendant. Attach a second jump ring to the first one, and also to an 8mm bead connector. Attach three jump rings in a row, attaching a 6mm bead connector to the last jump ring. Add three jump rings, then another 8mm bead connector. Continue until you have six bead connectors in total on the right side of the necklace. Then, repeat this step to build the left side of the necklace.
