Ceramic Statement Necklace - Jewellery Making for Beginners

Difficulty: Beginner


Ceramic beads make a very interesting medium to work with. They can add texture and colour where other beads cannot. This is a great tutorial for those who like Ceramic beads but are stuck for inspiration on how to use them.
You can of course use any large hole beads for this project, as long as you bear in mind the thickness of the cord. You could also use thinner cord and scale the whole thing down if you like the effect but prefer a more delicate approach. We hope you have fun experimenting with this one. Let's create!

Materials required:

Leather Cord - 2 meters @ 1.5mm.
Ceramic Cube Beads - 4 pcs.
Ceramic Cube Beads - 4 pcs.
Ceramic Rondelle  9.5x19x19mm - 1 pc.
Ceramic Rondelle  6x18x20mm - 2 pcs
Spacer Bead - 2 pcs - Hole size must accommodate 4 lengths of the cord (6mm at least)
Cord End - at least 6mm threading hole
Jump Rings
Lobster Clasp

Remember that our tutorals are mainly designed to teach you technique and bring inspiration, so your jewellery doesn't have to look exactly like the one in the tutorial. Don't be afraid to experiment with shapes and colours.

Please note that the colours and shapes for the products illustrated in the image above may not match the 'Products List'. 

Step 1

Cut the cord into 4 equal sections, each about 50 cm.

Step 2

Thread a metal bead onto the cords.

Step 1

Step 3

Thread beads onto the cords- each time on 3 lengths of cord, one at the top and one at the bottom. When we have used all the beads, we put a metal bead at the end of the weave.

Step 1

Step 4

Glue all the cord sections to the ends and add the clasp.

Add the lobster to one of the cord ends with a jump ring. There is a short video tutorial at the beginning of the tutorial if you are new to jump rings ;)

Add a jump ring to the other cord end and your necklace is complete!
