This necklace is so easy to make and I’m unashamedly obsessed with it. I was attempting to make a much larger beaded prism to hang in my living room and I got too frustrated with it and I decided to just make one of the single triangles that I had made into a necklace. And I’ve been wearing it non-stop ever since!
What you need:
-1″ Bugle beads – I bought these
-Chain & clasp
-Thin nylon thread and needle
-Jump ring & pliers
How to make it:
-Lay out 8 of the beads and thread your needle with the nylon.
-Slip beads 1-3 onto your thread (you may want to make a little tape flag at the end of your thread so the beads don’t fall off the end) and pull them tight so it forms a triangle then got back through 1 and then add 4-5 and pull it tight to form a second triangle. Then put the needle back through 3 and add 6-7, pull tight, go through 5, add 8, and go back up through 7, and down through 1, then go through each of the beads around the base of the prism and back up through 1 to make it more sturdy. Then use the taped end to tie with the needle end and do a few tight knots so the nylon won’t unravel.
-Slip a jump ring around the peak of the triangle and slide it onto your chain.
-If your chain didn’t come with a clasp, cut the chain to your desired length and use your pliers to connect a clasp.
Now go make one for yourself and share some photos of it with us! We’d love to see it!
*Update: Here are a few more photos to help those that were having problems putting their prism together. I added washi tape to the beads so that you could see which “numbers” to go through as I had written in the instructions earlier.
