crown of love

A great bridesmaid's gift is a beaded necklace in the bridal colors!

Beading wire

Bead findings & clasps


crimping beads

beading tools

1. measure the appropriate length of beading wire (if you want an 18" necklace, measure out 20" of wire)

2. lay out your design on the bead board

3. at one end of the wire, attach one side of the clasp using crimp beads and a crimper.

4. string your beads in the design you want

5. finish off with the crimp beads and clasp at the other end.

Congratulations! You know have a great necklace.
