Learn how to make this colourful 'Carnival Necklace', using hand painted wooden beads and a gold plated brass chain.

Step 1

Cut 5 pieces of wire approx. 50cm long. Use a crimp to attach one piece of wire to one of the loops at one end of the clasp bar.

Step 2

Thread on 10 green wood beads followed by a coin bead, 2x green wood beads, a rectangle bead, 9x green wood beads and 1 rectangle bead. Repeat the same pattern in reverse to match the other side and crimp to the other clasp bar.

Step 3

Crimp your next piece of wire to the next loop along and thread on 3x red wood beads, 1x pink and orange rectangle bead, 12x red wood beads, 1 x pink and orange coin bead, 8x red wood beads, 1x pink and orange coin bead, 12x red wood beads, 1x pink and orange rectangle beads and 3x red wood beads. Crimp to the same loop on the opposite bar and cut off any excess wire.

Step 4

Crimp another piece of wire to the next loop and thread on 11x purple wood beads, 1x purple coin beads, 7x purple wood beads, 1x purple rectangle bead, 7x purple wood beads, 1x purple coin bead and 11x purple wood beads. Crimp to the opposite side as before and cut off any excess. 

Step 5

Crimp your next piece of wire to the next loop along and thread on 5x green wood beads, 1x green rectangle bead, 6x green wood beads, 1 x green coin bead, 8x green wood beads, 1x green coin bead, 6x green wood beads, 1x green rectangle beads and 5x green wood beads. Crimp to the same loop on the opposite bar and cut off any excess wire.

Step 6

Crimp your last piece of wire to the remaining loop and thread on 2x red wood beads, 1x orange coin beads, 11x red wood beads, 1x orange rectangle bead, 11x red wood beads, 1x orange coin bead and 2x red wood beads. Crimp to the opposite side as before and cut off any excess.

Step 7

Cut the chain in half and fold each half into two. Attach a jump ring to the centre and attach to one half of the clasp. Use a jump ring to attach the loose ends to the clasp bar. Repeat on the other side of the necklace to finish.

Step 8

Wear in the sunshine!
