How to make a simple necklace with Toho Beads and Crystals

Difficulty: Beginner

Do you like trinkets? I think each of us, from time to time, wants to wear something shinier, something extra! Monika, a leading bead fanatic, loves everything that glitters. That is why she decided to show you how to make a simple beaded necklace, which when worn with a little black dress, will make you feel like a glamorous star. 

Materials required:

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 and products illustrated in the images above may not match the 'Products List'

Step 1

We thread 7 x T11 beads on quite a long thread - approx 3 meters. If you do not like to work with a long thread, you can cut a shorter thread and tie in when you need to add more. See HERE for instructions.

We tie a knot so that we create a circle. 

Step 1

Step 2

Step 2

We thread the sequence of beads starting with a 4mm round --> 4mm round - 4 Toho 11/0 beads - repeat until you have the desired length of your necklace. We end with 4mm round.

Step 1

Step 3

We already have the quantity to be the length of our necklace. At the end of CL4, we now thread 7 x T11 beads and go through all the T11 just added to form a circle. This will be our next loop on which we will hang the clasp.  Pass through the circle again to make sure it won't break.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 4

We go through the 4mm round and pick up a sequence of beads: 4 x  T11 beads - 1 x 4mm round - 7 x T11 beads

We also pick up a 6 mm round and a T15.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 5

Skip the T15 and go through bead CL6 and one T11.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 6

We take 6  xT11 - 1 x CL4 - 4 x T11 and pass through the CL4 bead with which we started. Just like in the picture.

We continue through the next 4 x T11 and CL4.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 7

From then on, until the end, our sewing will be repeated.
So we thread the sequence: 4 x T11 - 1 x CL4 - 7 x T11 - 1 x CL6 - 1 x T15

Step 1

Step 2

Step 8

We go through CL6 and 1 of T11 (skip T15 at bottom)

Step 1

Step 9

We take 5 x T11s and pass through the T11's, 4CL4 and T11 from the previous drop. 

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 10

Take 3 x T11 and go through CL4 at the top of the necklace. As in the picture.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 11

We go through 4 x T11 and CL4 (as in the picture) and take the sequence again: 4 x T11 - CL4 - 7 x T11 - CL6 - T15

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 4

Step 12

We skip T15 and go through CL6 and T11

Step 1

Step 13

We take 5 x T11 and go through T11 - CL4 - T11 from the previous clove. As in the photo. 

Step 1

Step 2

Step 14

We take 3 x T11 and pass through CL4

Step 1

Step 2

Step 15

We go through 4 x T11 and CL4. 

Step 1

Step 16

We repeat the previous steps.
We take the sequence - 4 x T11 - CL4 - 7 x T11 - CL6 - T15

Step 1

Step 17

We skip T15 and go through CL6 and T11

We take 5 x T11 and go through T11 - CL4 -T11 from the previous drop

We take 3 x T11 and go through CL4. Then we go through 4 x T11 and another CL4 and add another sequence ... And so on ... Until we come to the end of the necklace. 

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 4

Step 5

Step 6

Step 7

Step 8

Step 9

Step 10

Step 18

We have added the last drop so we should have 2 threads next to each other. The initial one and the one we just sewed. We tie a knot and pass the threads along the top of the necklace as far as possible and cut it off. We will strengthen our necklace a little. 

Step 1

Step 19

We add the clasp and jump ring (& optional extension chain) and it's ready!
