Green & Pink Heart Necklace: Project Instructions

Posted by Eureka! Beads on 27th Mar 2019

Glass pendants can add a stunning feature to any necklace - in this project we run with the pink and green colours of the pendant to create a simple necklace. Follow our free beading instructions to make it yourself.

MATERIALS REQUIRED

  • 24 x 6mm rondelle glass crystal beads
  • 47 x 3mm plain metal beads
  • 24 x 7mm helix glass crystal beads
  • 60 cm of tigertail
  • 2 small crimps
  • 2 strong jump rings
  • 2 crimp covers
  • 1 glass pendant
  • 1 parrot clasp

TOOLS REQUIRED

  • 2 pairs of Crimping Pliers
  • Twirly Wirlie Pliers
  • Wire Cutters

INSTRUCTIONS

The pattern

  • a 6mm rondelle glass crystal bead
  • a 3mm plain metal bead bead
  • a 7mm helix glass crystal bead
  • a 3mm plain metal bead bead

Putting it together

Take the piece of tigertail and thread through a small crimp. Thread through a jump ring, then back through the crimp. Pull up tightly, squish down your crimp and cut off any excess tigertail. Place a crimp cover around the squashed crimp and gently squish into a round ball with your pliers to hide the crimp.

Thread onto your strand:

  • the pattern (as above) 12 times

Next, thread on your glass pendant.

Complete your necklace by threading on:

  • a 7mm helix glass crystal bead
  • a 3mm plain metal bead bead
  • the pattern (as above) 11 times
  • a 6mm rondelle glass crystal bead

Thread the end of your tigertail through a small crimp. Thread through a jump ring, then back through the crimp. Pull up tightly (but leave enough space to put another crimp cover over the crimp) and squish down the small crimp. Cut off any excess tigertail. Place a crimp cover around the squashed crimp and gently squish into a round ball with your pliers to hide the crimp.

Open up one of the jump rings (as these are quite strong, you will need two pairs of pliers or a jump ring tool) and attach the parrot clasp. Close securely. Your necklace is now ready to wear!
