floral drop lucite necklace. Now this is an exclusive kit from beadaholique.com It comes in several different colors and
it’s a really pretty necklace see how it hangs. If you turn it up a little bit you’ll see the flowers a little bit more clearly it comes in a couple different color
combinations I wanna show you how to put together
this kit in this video. So when you purchase the kit you’re going to get everything you see
here, just what you need to make the necklace which is great because you
don’t have to buy a whole pack of jump rings or a whole pack of head pins, you
get just what you need you’re gonna get a pre made chain, a head pin a couple large bead caps, a couple small
bead caps a large lucite flower and a small one in a
nice color combo, a jump ring and a pretty bead as well. Now tools do not come with
the kits but all you really need for this kit is your very basic jewelry making tools a pair of chain nose pliers, a pair of round
nose pliers and a cutter as well. Let me show you how to make this really quick and easy kit. Take your head pin place onto it your glass bead you follow that up with one of the small bead
caps facing in the downward position to go
over the bead add your large flower again facing in the downward position. Then we’re
going to add the bead cap with the rounded edge followed by the bead cap with the
pointy edge you can see on this one I actually have it so
it’s flaring upwards. It’s a really pretty petal effect add our small lucite flower and our
other small bead cap so there we have the actual drop which we’ve created. We’re going to make a wrapped wire loop to do that make sure all of your beads have
slid down to the base of the head pin grip the head pin right above the last bead
cap bend the wire at a 90 degree angle switch pliers go ahead and use our round nose pliers gripping the head pin right at that bend,
take the wire with your fingers and loop it up and over,
rotate the pliers go ahead with your fingers pull the wire
around so that you’ve created a loop. At this
point go ahead and grab our chain nose pliers again grip that loop and now we’re gonna make
the wraps just using our fingers and wrapping
the tail of the head pin around itself make a couple wraps and then at the back you’re just going to go ahead, trim the
wire with your cutters. You’ll see you have a
little rough tail right there. Grab your chain nose pliers again tuck that tail in and it’ll help to stabilize your wrappings when you do that see that’s what we’ve got. Now we just need to attach it to our pre-made chain necklace. To do
that we’ve provided a jump ring take the jump ring and open it. Use your chain nose and a round nose for this, twist it and open it. Place it through the wrapped wire
loop you just made also go ahead and place the chain into the well of the jump ring and close it back up you have just completed your necklace so this kit and a number of other ones
