Simple Beaded Pendant

The pendant shown here was made from "recycled" jewelry: I will often buy used necklaces, charms, etc. at thrift stores and yard sales, take them apart, and make new creations with the beads and other parts.

Approximate Time: less than 30 minutes

Supplies:

  • beading wire
  • wire cutters
  • needle nose pliers
  • spacers
  • jump ring
  • crimping beads
  • glass or wood beads
  • interesting charm
  • necklace chain

Instructions:

Cut a piece of beading wire approximately 5" long with the wire cutters. Loop the wire through the charm. Thread spacer through both pieces of beading wire. Thread crimp bead. Squeeze crimp bead tightly with needle nose pliers. Alternate beads till pendant is desired length. Thread crimp bead, top bead, and jump ring - using the wire cutters, cut excess wire to less than 1/2 inch. Loop wires through the top bead and the crimp bead, and gently push through the other bead holes. Squeeze crimp bead tightly with needle nose pliers. Thread necklace through the jump ring and proudly wear your new pendant piece.

Just starting to do beading and am interested in different projects. This came out very nicely. I plan to go in serch of jewelery at yard sales to make some of my own pieces also. This was a good example of what I would like to do. Thank you.
