Step-By-Step Instructions

Learn to create simple strung, beaded designs using the contents of the March Treasure Box. Create 3 - 4 necklaces in varying lengths in simple, repetitive patterns that can be stacked one on top of each other on the neck or fastened together to make one long, versatile piece of jewelry to use as necklace or multi wrap bracelet. 1. Gather your wire cutter, needle nose pliers, crimp beads, and beading cable wire to start creating. Cut a piece of 20 inches of beading cable wire and attach one end of the twist clasp. 2. Watch the Simple Stacker Treasure Box Necklace video to see simple patterns like 11/0 seed bead, gemstone, and metal beads and then attach the second side of the twist clasp using crimp beads and your needle nose pliers. 3. After finishing the first necklace at approximately 16 inches, create subsequent designs increasing the length 2-4 inches each. When completing the necklaces, screw one side of the twist clasp to another necklace end for options on wearing your design. This video project tutorial is teaches the basics of beading and attaching ends to your patterned beading using a flat crimping technique. Create multiple necklaces at varying lengths to wear together, connect together, or wear just one at a time.
