How to make a CrystaLove™ Spring Necklace - Beginners Jewellery Making Tutorial

Although the weather outside the window does not always indicate it, spring is fast approaching. We decided to speed it up a bit - with a little help from this cute Spring Jewellery Tutorial. Today I will show you step by step how to make a delicate necklace with gorgeous beads in a beautiful, spring green colour. An asymmetrical necklace with a leaf will not improve the weather, but I promise it will make waiting for the first rays of the sun more pleasant. Ready? Let's create!

We have some great video tutorials to help beginners with this tutorial! For help with Turning A Loop can be found HERE and How to Use a Jump Ring can be found HERE.

Materials required:
Your favourite colour beads - I chose  fresh green CrystaLove™ 3x4mm Rondelle. Any bead will work, just remember that the bigger your bead, the heavier the necklace will be and the less bead connectors you will need to make.
Your favourite Connector or Pendant - You need to be able to easily add a jump ring to each end. Again, the bigger the Connector, the less chain you will need and the less bead connectors you will need to make.
Chain  - I made my own by linking together jump rings from the findings kit. You can find ready made chains HERE if you prefer.
Findings Set

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.

Step 1

You can either use Eye Pins or Head Pins for this tutorial.

If using Head Pins, first, cut the head off the pin.

Step 1

Step 2

Bend the pin at a 90 degree angle approximately 1-1.5 centimetres from the end.

Step 1

Step 3

Turn a loop with the bent part.

Step 1

Step 4

Add a bead to the resulting pin.

Step 1

Step 5

Cut the pin leaving 1cm to turn.

Turn a second loop with the remaining 1cm to form a bead connector.

Step 1

Step 6

Attach a jump ring to the bottom of the Connector.

Step 1

Step 7

Attach the bead Connector just made to the jump ring.

Step 1

Step 8

Make 2 more bead connectors and add them to either side of the connector.

Step 1

Step 9

Make another bead connector and add to the upper part of the Connector. Using a jump ring, attach chain to the last bead connector added.

For now, we don't have to cut the chain, let it hang - this way it will be easier for us to choose the length of the second part of the necklace. 

Step 1

Step 10

Make more connector beads and add them to the 2 already added beneath the Connector.

Step 1

Step 11

We continue until we reach the length that suits us. My necklace was supposed to be asymmetrical, so I decided to put 31 beads on one side and 2 beads on the other (Connector side). 

Step 1

Step 12

Cut the already attached chain at a distance of approx. 16 cm from the jump ring.

Attach a lobster clasp to the chain using another jump ring.

Step 1

Step 13

Add a further jump ring to the last bead connector on the other side of the necklace.

Step 1

Step 14

And it's ready to wear :)

Step 1

Step 15

The finished necklace can look totally different just by changing the Connector, colour of findings and how many bead connectors and chain you add. Experiment and have fun with it!
