Time for another jewelry tutorial!
Today I'm going to show you how to make this pearl necklace. Instead of a regular clasp I've used ribbon - I think it gives it a special touch and looks so cute on - especially wearing it with your hair up!
-Two different size strands of pearls
Also pictured: jump rings, but I didn't end up using them.
Step 1: String your first set of pearls onto a piece of beading wire
Step 2: String a crimp bead and then ribbon connector to the end of the wire. Go back through the crimp bead, squish it with needle nose pliers, and trim the excess wire.
Do this for both sides of the pearls
Step 3: Follow the same steps and add the second strand of beads onto the ribbon connectors.
Step 4: Put the ribbon into the jaws of the ribbon connector, and then squeeze it closed with needle nose pliers.
Do this on both sides, and then burn the tip of the ribbon ends so it doesn't fray.
Tie a bow, and now you have a pearl necklace with a cute ribbon closure!
