amazonite bar necklace

This leather lace is very lightweight and has some stretch, which makes a perfect component for this Natural Wood Bead Necklace. Taper leather lace pieces in varying lengths to make a long tassel.
Step 1

Find the center point of your chain necklace and cut it in half and set it aside.

Step 2

Thread your beads onto an eye pin.
TIP: In the featured project, the bead order is: Amazonite, Gold rondelle, Amazonite, Gold rondelle, Amazonite, Gold rondelle, Amazonite, Gold rondelle and Amazonite beads.

Step 3

Above the last bead, bend the wire to a 90° angle. Grasp the wire at about ½" from the bend with round nose pliers and make a simple loop. Trim the excess wire.

Step 4

Carefully open the loop on one end of the eye pin, just enough to slide on one end of the cut chain. Repeat on the opposite side.
TIP: Use the image as a guide.

Step 5
To shape the beaded bar into an inverted arch, simply use your hands to bend the center downward and then continue bending outward until the inverted arch is even across the bar.
