Design a shining necklace with gemstones, fire polish beads and gold plated findings. Watch the video below to learn how to use your 1 Step Looper Tool. 

See Step One for tips on using the 1 Step Big Looper Tool.



Step 1

Using the one step looper tool, make approximately 23 connectors, each with 3 beads. To do this, simply take an eyepin, thread on your 3 beads and use the looper tool to trim and loop the other end of the pin, close to the 3rd bead. 

If you are using the one step 'Big' looper, your pins may have different sized loops at either end. If you want them to be the same size, you can trim off the original loop, then make a new loop, thread on your beads and finish with another loop of the same size.

Step 2

Once you are happy with your bead/pin connectors, lay them out into your necklace design. 

Join all the pins together by carefully opening a loop on the pin and linking it to the next pin. Close the loops securely so they have no gaps. Continue to join the pins together until your necklace is as long as you want. You can make more connectors if you want a longer necklace. 

Step 3

Attach one half of your toggle clasp onto one end of your necklace using a jumpring, and then repeat with the other side of your clasp at the other end of the necklace.
