Butterbees Necklace


I have another project to share with you all with some of the
beautiful products that Monique sent me from the Butterbee Scraps store.
Today I am sharing a necklace with one of my favorite Locket pieces
and lots of silver and turquoise beads.

So my favorite color is turquoise so it's no surprise I picked
this big beautiful silver heart locket set and some turquoise beads to 
create my necklace with.  I really love all the details in this
locket set and they had the perfect extras to make it easy to do.

So to start with you will need these things from
the Butterbee Scraps website:

 and you will need Silver 18 and 20 gauge wire, 4mm silver beads
6/0 E Beads in turquoise, bead stringing wire,
Beadalon wire cutters, nylon jaw pliers and chain nose pliers.

Start by cutting pieces of wire about 3 inches long and looping
the end and stringing on the beads as shown and looping the other end.
You will need 4 of these for each side.

For the front make about a 1/2" triple jump ring to hang the
locket, flower and key on in the center.  Attach jump rings to each
of the charms and use your pliers to add them to the ring.  
Add extra little rhinestones from the store too if desired like i did.

For the next part take your needle nose pliers and twist
the 20 gauge silver wire to create 2 triple loops side by side.
These are going between the beads that you created.
Attach them together with your pliers.  Next you are going
to string a piece of bead stringing wire through one of the ends
and start adding about 3" of beads.  Tie and knot the closure
on one end and slip the leftover string back through the
beads and trim.  Do the same for the other side of the necklace.

I hope you liked my new necklace and be sure and stop over
for the sale going on in the Butterbee Scraps website today.

Have a wonderful day,
