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 for the products illustrated in the image above may not match the 'Products List'. 

Step 1

Firstly thread on enough seed beads in the sea foam colour to create a strand that will fit around your neck, add a lobster clasp to one and and a jump ring to the other to secure the beads and ensure you can fasten the necklace around your neck. 

Step 2

Now cut roughly 40 cm of thread and do this seven times so you have seven strands of thread. Now using a size 10 beading needle add three seed beads in your chosen colour and make a small loop, thread upwards roughly 6 seed beads and loop down one to create another strand out the side, add three seed beads and a loop of three seed beads again but in the complementing colour threading back up that strand into the main centre piece again and continue this technique upwards unil you have a coral looking strand of beads that measures roughly 5 cm. You need to repeat this for all seven strands of thread but alternate the colours each time. 

Step 3

Now attach the coral tassels to the main necklace starting from the centre and move out, ensuring they are close together and bunching slightly.
