Fun Fuchsia and Silver Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Long necklaces are back in style. Make yours in passionate pink and silver to really make a statement. Wear it long or wrap it for a multi-layered look!

Step one: Create your links using simple loops and single beads. For the larger beads, frame them in daisy spacers. Click here for instructions on how to how to make simple loops.

Step two: Experiment a bit with what method is more comfortable for you, some people like to make all of their links first and then join them together in a pattern, others like to link as they go. The key to this is that the pattern is random, so you can do anything you like! Continue linking until you have used all the beads in the list of components. Randomly mix in small lengths of chain (1½ to 3 inches at a time) until you have used between 8 and 12 inches. You should have a necklace that is approximately 50 inches in total length.
