KIDS BEADED NECKLACE
WHAT YOU'LL NEED:
- Tiger Tail
- 10mm Jump Rings
- 2mm Round Crimpers
- Selection of Kids Beads (We used Ribtex Play Jewels)
- Ribbon 1m (Colour and width of your choice)
- Cutter Pliers
Step 1 - Cut 40cm of tiger tail and thread through your selection of beads. Choose beads of different colours & shapes to create an interesting pattern.
Step 2 - Secure both ends of the tiger tail with crimpers. String a crimper onto the tiger tail and form a loop back through the crimper. Close the crimper by squashing it with the pliers. Thread tiger tail back through a couple of beads and trim excess.
Step 3 - Attach jump rings to the tiger tail end loops. Always open the jump rings sideways to avoid weakening the metal.
Step 4 -Cut the ribbon into two lengths, approx. 40-50cm each. Tie one end each ribbon to each jump ring. The extra length will allow easy adjustment of the necklace.
Using jump rings you can attach charms & pendants to the necklace to create a statement or fun slogan. Create 'Best Friend' necklaces or something sweet to accessorize with.
