Follow the tutorial to make this lovely vintage looking necklace, using honey quartz stone and honey bee charm.

P.S. You may want to purchase a looper if you do not already have this handy tool (W331).

Step 1

Thread 1 x EX3118 onto an Eyepin (TP3). Trim the Eyepin to leave an approx 1cm tail. Bend the tail 45 degrees (as close to the bead as possible) using flat nose pliers. Using round nose pliers, grip the top end of the pin and twist into a loop. Repeat 9 more times.

Step 2

Connect 5 of these together using the loops of the eyepins. Repeat so that you have 2 chains of 5.

Step 3

Add the Bee Charm to the ends of the chains just made, again, using the loops of the eyepins.

Step 4

Thread 1 x EX3118 onto a Headpin (TP2). Trim the headpin to leave an approx 1cm tail. Bend the tail 45 degrees (as close to the bead as possible) using flat nose pliers. Using round nose pliers, grip the top end of the pin and twist into a loop. Add this loop to attach to the remaining loop on the Bee Charm.

Step 5

Cut a strip of 17cm from the chain (CH102). Attach one end of this to one of the 5 Gem chains already made, attaching using the eye of the eyepin. Attach the other end of the chain to 1 part of the Toggle Clasp (F821) using a jumpring.

Step 6

Repeat step 5 for the other side.
