DIY Three Strand Beaded Necklace from Get Carey’d Away
This fun project is an easy way to add oomph to a plain outfit and to make a necklace that will really stand out for all the more formal events that come around once the weather gets nicer such as bridal showers, garden parties, weddings and baby showers. Use any round beads in 6 and 8mm here along with much smaller spacers. For example, Swarovski Crystal Pearls would be ideal or if you want a variation that was more festive and less formal you could try pretty faceted Czech Firepolish beads.
The Golden Knot Necklace from The Sweet Survival
This excellent tutorial shows you how to make the above necklace with step by step photo instructions as well as written ones. For a high quality product I suggest using Japanese TOHO seed beads. They come in so many beautiful colors that you can make dozens of different necklaces! For an interesting variation on this necklace try using Czech Farfalle Seed Beads or Charlotte Cut Seed Beads instead.
DIY Coral Statement Necklace from Nelle Creations
This simple step by step tutorial is an easy way to make a necklace with a lot of impact! Try using Swarovski’s Gem Color series of crystal pearls such as Coral or Dark Lapis for a great look that will be very trendy this summer!
