Bubblegum Necklace

Difficulty: Beginner


Learn how to make the Bubblegum Necklace using a mixture of delicate dyed jade beads and a shining silver chain.

Step 1

Cut a length of chain measuring 20". 
Attach a lobster clasp to one end of this.

Step 2

Make 11 bead charms by threading individual jade beads onto headpins. Trim and loop the headpin above the bead. 
Make 4 blue jade charms, 3 pink and 4 white. 

Step 3

Find the halfway point of your chain and attach a blue jade charm. 
Count 4 links away on either side of this bead and attach a white bead charm to each of the 4th links. 

Step 4

Cut another length of chain measuring approx 8". 
Count 8 links outwards from your white beads on your first chain.
Attach your new length of chain to these 8th links. 
At the centre point of this second chain, attach a pink bead charm. 

Step 5

Cut another length of chain measuring approx. 9".
Where you attached the previous chain, count down this chain 5 links on either side. 
Attach your last length of chain to these points. 
Check your necklace hangs correctly. 

Step 6

Finally find the halfway point of this lowest hanging chain. 
Attach a blue bead. 
Count 5 links in either direction on the chain and att a pink bead on both sides. Repeat this again and add a white bead on each side and then the remaining blue beads.
