Learn how to make this coral inspired necklace using tiny seed beads in complementing colours - on trend style for spring/summer 2019.

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.
