I needed to make some things to donate to our Annual Scout Silent Auction Fundraiser. I decided to play around with my jewelery supplies and see what I came up with. Here are 3 simple projects I made.Buttons and Black cording. The cording should be about 4 times the finished length because you are doubling it. Tie a loop in one end, making sure the hole is just barely large enough to fit your closure button.
Next is a pearl bracelet. Using strong beading filament, make a small loop for the end and close with a crimp ring.
Lastly is a floating bead neckace. I'm so loving these right now and they are super easy to make.
Take a piece of beading filament 2 times as long as the finished piece as you are doubling the filament to create the floating beads. I also coiled some of my fine wire to creat the two little springy things. They cover the end crimp ring. Using a crimp ring, secure the filament to the toggle you are using and thread the coil over both strands of filament.
