The mood beads mixed into these pieces create an ever-changing color palette.
Mood beads are a great accessory for children and parents alike. This set pairs mood beads with shining tassels for an unforgettable look you'll want to share with your daughter or granddaughter. Make these necklaces together for a fun beading day Your child can help make the tassels and string the beads.
Make three tassels with the Beadalon tassel maker using Beadalon metallic blue on black cotton tassel cord for two of the tassels and Beadalon metallic green on black cotton tassel cord for one tassel. The tassel maker rods were set at the second holes from the center for our tassels.
Gather the cords used to tie off each tassel together and tie them in an overhand knot close to the top of the tassels. We made sure the green tassel was in the center of the bunch. Before you pull the knot tight, slip a four-inch piece of 24 gauge Silver Artbeads Designer Wire into the knot. Now pull the knot tight around the wire.
Bend the wire up around the knot and twist it two to three times to secure the wire to the knot. Place all six of the strands of the knot between the two wires and twist the wires again. Repeat one more time for extra security. Trim one end of the wires and all of the cords, leaving one end of the wire to to thread through your focal bead.
Slide the mirage mood radiant rouge coin bead onto the wire and down over the twisted wire so that it is close and tight to the knot. Add a 5mm mirage mood micro bicone bead to the wire and then finish the wire with a wrapped loop.
Cut approximately 26 inches of jewelry wire. Attach a silver-plated small lobster clasp to a sterling silver 4.30mm open jump ring and close the jump ring. Slide a sterling silver 2x2mm crimp tube onto the end of your jewelry wire, followed by the jump ring. Bring the wire back through the crimp tube and pull tight to form a loop around the jump ring. Crimp in place.
Add a 6mm mirage mood mirco round bead to the strand. Slide this bead so that it fits over the crimp tube to act as a cover. Then, add the following pattern of beads to your strand:
Three fire-polished 6mm fern green beads, one 5mm bicone, three fire-polished beads and one round mood bead. Repeat once more.
A fire-polished bead, one bicone mood bead, a fire-polished bead and three round mood beads. Repeat once more.
One fire-polished bead, one bicone mood bead, one fire-polished bead and one round mood bead.
One mirage mood rosy posy puffy disc bead.
One round mood bead, a fire-polished bead and one bicone mood bead.

One bicone mood bead, one fire-polished bead and one round mood bead.
One puffy disc mood bead.
One round mood bead, one fire-polished bead, one bicone mood bead, one fire-polished bead, three round mood beads and a fire-polished bead.
Add your focal to the strand then make a mirror image of the bead pattern on the other side of the wire. Attach a 925/10 silver-filled 6mm closed 18 gauge jump ring to a 4.30mm open jump ring. Slide a crimp tube onto your wire, followed by the 4.30mm jump ring. Bring your wire back through the crimp tube to form a loop around the jump ring and crimp in place. Remember to use the last round mood bead on the strand as a crimp cover by sliding it over the crimp tube.
Make tassels and attach them to a piece of wire as you did for the previous necklace. We used metallic blue on black cotton tassel cord for one tassel, metallic green on black cotton tassel cord for another tassel and the Beadalon metallic silver on blue cotton tassel cord for the last tassel. Slide the 17.5x16mm mirage mood turtle island bead onto the wire, followed by a bicone mood bead. Make a wrapped loop at the top of the beads.
Cut a length of jewelry wire approximately 26 inches long. Attach a clasp to a 4.30mm jump ring. Slide a crimp tube onto the wire followed by the jump ring. Bring the wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place. Then, add the following bead pattern to the wire:
One round mood bead and six fire-polished 4mm aquamarine beads.
One bicone mood bead and six fire-polished beads.
One bicone mood bead, one round mood bead, one bicone mood bead and three fire-polished beads. Repeat two times.
