Make a Pendant from a Chain and a Chain from Beads

I have received a glorious array of beads from Jesse James Beads as a Design Ambassador. In fact, I've gotten so many that some have been neglected. I received the July Magical Mystery Bead Box at the end of July and put this Sunflower-inspired box aside while I made designs with some of the other beads from them. The Sunflowers box seems perfect for Fall, so it was about time I pulled it out and played. You can watch my unboxing of this array of beads, chain, and other treasures on YouTube. This unique necklace is my first to come out of that box. 

The "Chain of Blooms" chain from the box included three main links, and I moved them around so that the twisted ring hung from the bottom of the floral connector. The infinity connector was perfect to top the pendant and connect it to each side of the chain once I altered its alignment.

Dangles were created with headpins and a few of the beads in the Sunflowers Mini Mix. This addition finished the pendant.

From there, I picked out brown and green beads from the Gratitude, Friendship, & Happiness Bead Mix and used them to make links for the front portion of the necklace's chain. Jump rings were used to attach these links together and add a golden chain from my stash. To finish the necklace, a lobster clasp was added. 

This is a fabulous fall necklace. And, it kinda, sorta looks like an owl (one of my favorite animals). In my YouTube video, you can watch the complete tutorial to Create a Pendant with a Chain and a Chain with Beads

Of course, if you have ANY questions, I'd be happy to answer them. Ask away!

  1. The focal assemblage is very smart and has great movement! All those chain components can be used in so many different ways!


Thanks for stopping by! It means so very much to me. I love to hear what you have to say.
