How to make a Czech beaded necklace - Jewellery making tutorial

We invite you to a jewellery making tutorial in which Paula Banaszak will show you how to make a Czech beaded necklace. Fall inspired her to create this necklace, not by the rainy and dark days, but by the days full of warm colours: red, yellow and brown. Of course, the colour palette chosen by Paula doesn't oblige you to anything. The necklace will be equally beautiful in cool winter colours. The necklace is not difficult to make, and the end result is very original, making it ideal for a handmade gift for a loved one. See for yourself :)!

Materials needed to make the necklace:

TOHO beads - in size 15/0 and 11/0  - I have used the colour Silver Lined Burnt Orange

CzechMates Beads  - one tile shaped beads (Celsian Siam Ruby colour), one Dagger shaped beads (Swirl Black-Red colour), and 9 Crescent shaped beads (Polychrome Gold Rush)

SuperDuo beads - about 26 beads 2.5x5mm

Round beads or natural stones - in 6mm - I used agates in pastel orange, other stones of similar dimensions will work just as well

FirePolish beads - size 4mm, colour Bronze Iris Ruby 

Jewellery String - the most effective will be twisted string. Mine is a 5mm string, but 4 or 5mm will work just as well. Make sure you choose the ends or the clasp with the appropriate size inner hole for the string.

Glue

Needle - John James size 10/13

Jewellery Thread - monofilament or One-G thread

End Caps  - tips with an internal hole corresponding to the selected string. 

Jump rings - 6-7mm 

Lobster Clasp - 12mm

You will also need: Jewellery Pliers and a lighter. 

Step 1

Thread the Toho Round 11 / (TR11) and Crescent beads alternately. Then we go through all the bead once again, forming a circle. We tie the ends of the threads (double knot).

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 2

Thread through the next three beads (we hide the knot in this way). The thread must come out of the Crescent bead. Then we go to the upper hole.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Add one FirePolish (FP) bead between the top holes of the Crescent beads. Then we go through the entire lap once more, with the same thread. The line must come out of the FP bead to finish.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 4

Thread 5 TR11, and go through the same bead from which the thread comes out, but from the other side (as in the photo).

Step 1

Step 2

Step 5

Go through all the added beads again, but skip the middle (third) TR11 bead. We go to the next bead (FP) as in the photo below.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 6

Repeat steps 4 and 5 until we've added all the FP beads.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 7

Go with the needle to the nearest middle TR11 bead so that the thread comes out of it.

Step 1

Step 8

Thread the Toho Round 15/0 (TR15), agate, TR15 and go to the next middle TR11 bead. In this way we do the whole lap. Then we go through all the added beads again, with the same string.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 4

Step 5

Step 9

Add 1 SuperDuo (SD), TR11, SD between agates (do not go through the beads, only through the agates). After the addition of beads, we go through the entire lap again, with the same thread. The line must leave the SD bead.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 10

Go to the upper hole of the bead from which the fishing line comes out.

Step 1

Step 11

Between the upper holes of the SD beads, add one SD bead.

Step 1

Step 12

While above the agates we add 5 TR11, going through the SD, as in the picture.

Step 1

Step 13

Thread the TR15, Dagger, TR15; we're going through the SD.

Step 1

Step 14

Repeat step 11, then step 10, and step 11 etc ...

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 15

We go through the entire lap once again with the same thread, skipping the middle bead TR11, as in Step 5.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 4

Step 5

Step 6

Step 16

Going between the beads move to the bead marked in the picture. (the thread must come out of this SD, from the bottom hole)

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 4

Step 17

We go through the middle SD bead (the thread goes from right to left).

Step 1

Step 18

Go to the upper SD hole.

Step 1

Step 19

Thread 7 TR15, Tila and leave for a moment.

Step 1

Step 20

In the meantime, prepare the cord, measure 60cm and burn the ends.
Pour the glue into the terminals to be pasted and screw it in (according to the twist of the cord), install the cord in them.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 21

Let's get back to work. We thread 18 TR15.

Step 1

Step 22

We wrap the cord with beads, and go through the Tile and TR15 and SD beads (as in the photo).

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 23

Go to the SD bead sticking out from the right.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 24

Go to the upper SD hole and repeat steps 18, 20 and 21. Finish by starting with the needle from the Tile bead.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 4

Step 25

We go through the adjacent hole of the Tile bead upwards, through all the beads (strengthen the attachment). The needle comes out of the Tile bead.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 26

We go back to the previous hole and here we also go through all the beads, as in the pictures.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 27

Passing between the beads, we secure the end of the thread.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 28

At some point (preferably before a larger bead), we go through with our needle under the thread. We create a loop. We go through it with a needle and tighten the knot.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 29

Hide the end of the thread in beads, cut the excess.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 30

We hide the beginning of our fishing line in the same way. We go through a few beads and cut off the excess.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 31

During this period of time, the glue should be starting to set, so we mount the jump rings and a lobster clasp (or you can do it before you glue the cord).
