How to make a bead necklace

I must admit, I got a bit carried way with the statement necklaces of last season. Usually I try to buy beads in semi precious stones and work with silver rather than cheaper materials. But these white wooden beads just caught my eye and I could see them as a bold necklace.

No skill required in making this at all. I always buy proper thread for stringing beads as it is stronger. I gauged the length and then knotted the thread and that was it. The beads and thread together were equivalent in cost to a cup of coffee.

The Greenie Galleries at the top of this page have 100s of photos of older and newer projects showing multiple ways to make your own clothing and accessories. There are also ideas to recycle or upcycle.

Back soon.
