When I saw this cute, blue flower connector, I knew I wanted to use it as the centre piece of something.  This is what I came up with. I was inspired by the colours of the Ukrainian flag but teamed them with these gorgeous new fuchsia and yellow glass beads. Ready? Let's Bead!

You can add all the items you need to your basket by clicking the box in the 'Products used' section above, or you can let your imagination run wild and choose your own materials from the links below. Please note that the colours for the products illustrated in the image above may not match the 'Products List'. 

Remember - our tutorials are for inspiration and learning purposes. They include links to the relevant categories for you to choose your own colour combinations and we positively encourage you to experiment with different shapes, sizes, finishes, composition and texture. Why not choose your own beads and colours to achieve something in your own style? Let your imagination run wild and make your dream jewellery.

Step 1

First, double over a 5cm piece of thread and loop it through the jump ring.

Step 1

Step 2

Then, pick up twelve 9SB, twelve  9FT, twelve 9Y, one GB and one 9Y.

Step 1

Step 3

Next, using the final 9Y as a stopper bead, sew back up through all of the beads and the jump ring again for strength. Tie off the thread and sew back down the tassel again, cutting off any loose ends neatly.

Step 1

Step 4

Following that, make three more identical tassels.

Step 1

Step 5

Then, repeat steps 1 and 2 but also pick up one GB and one 9Y. Repeat step 3. Complete this step twice to make two tassels.

Step 1

Step 6

After that, using the jump rings, attach the tassels evenly at the base of the connector.

Step 1

Step 7

Next, using the same method as step 1, attach a length of thread to a jump ring and pick up one 9Y, one GB, then the seed beads in groups of twelve until the necklace is half of your desired length. My necklaces uses nine groups of twelve beads on each side as I didn't want it to be too long. Make two, but finish one with a clasp to one end and a jump ring on the end of the other half. Finish off using the same method as step 3.

Step 1

Step 8

Finally, attach the two sides of your necklace to either side of the top of the connector.

Step 1

Step 9

Your necklace is now ready to wear.
