Take this necklace for example. I wanted to make something late one night, but I was exhausted and not interested in exerting much effort. So, I began fiddling around with my tiny stash of beads and things. (It really is tiny by crafty standards.) Five minutes of effort and look what happened? I got a casual yet elegant little twine beauty.
Almost anybody could make this project with things they already have at home. No jewelry pliers, fastenings, or findings needed! All that is required is:
1. twine, string, or even embroidery floss.
2. a few beads
3. a metal charm if desired
*Note: Most of my stash of beads, charms, and pendants come from neglected pieces of jewelry or jewelry I occasionally buy on clearance to take apart. You probably have some unused jewelry lying around too, so don't run off to the craft store!
This process is so straightforward, it's obvious right? Well, just in case...
Step 1: String your beads on the twine as desired. ( Less is more here people.)
Step 2: Tie some knots on either side of your end beads to keep them from sliding off.
Step 3: Tie your twine into a loop and wear.
The best part of this breezy project is the satisfaction of making something so lovely so easily. Happy impromptu crafting!
