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 piece of jewellery.

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

Step 1

Cut 1metre of wire. Thread on your clasp to the halfway point. Thread on 2x rondelles onto both cords, now thread another bead onto both cords making sure the cords pass through the bead in opposite directions. Continue this sequence until you have reached the centre (20cm beaded length) or your desired length.

Step 2

Now, to transition from one colour to the next, and to create the v shaped necklace you will need to add 2x green beads and 1x black bead onto the left hand cord. On the right cord thread on 1x black bead. Now thread on 1x black bead onto both strands making sure the cord is threaded through in the opposition directions. This should create the point in the necklace. 

Step 1

Step 3

Continue to bead a 20cm length or to your desired length. Use a crimp bead to attach inside your calotte or you could just use a crimp bead to attach onto a jump ring. The choice is yours.
