How to Make a Beaded Necklace

Part 1 of 3: Getting Started

  1. Choose a quiet location where you can be undisturbed. Although making a beaded necklace is quite easy, you'll have to concentrate on the task at hand. Choose a quiet and comfortable place where you can start and finish your project without many interruptions.


  2. Gather your beading materials. Make sure to have all of your materials at hand: beads, beading thread, wire cutter, crimp beads, super glue, and closures to properly finish your necklace.
    • The best kinds of wire are flexible beading wire and beading thread.
    • All of these materials are easily available at your local craft store (Michael's or Joanne's, for example).
  3. Determine your necklace style. When considering which style of necklace you'd like to create, think about factors such as length. If you like shorter necklaces you might consider making a collar or choker. If you like longer necklaces, you might want a lariat length (longer, usually down to your chest) necklace.
    • You can also make up your own style and length.Make a Beaded Necklace Step 2 Version 3.jpg These are simple suggestions to give you a rough idea.
    • Note that the finished length of your beaded necklace includes the beads you've used and the length of the jewelry clasp of your choice.

    Select a length. The collar is the shortest necklace and amounts to roughly 13 inches total length. The choker is a little longer, and goes down to about 14 to 16 inches. A Lariat is the longest, coming in at about and over 45 inches. As mentioned above, you can also choose your own length and style.

  5. 5

    Measure your neck, and then decide on a length. Take your tape measure, and loop it around your neck while looking at yourself in the mirror. Try small and big loops to see what you prefer. This will give you an idea of what your necklace might look like on your neck.

Part 2 of 3: Preparing The Design And Layout

  1. Arrange your beads on a flat surface, like a table or a desk. Play with the beads until you find the design you like best. Try different color variations, perhaps even think of having multiple layers of string. You might want a choker that wraps around your neck a few times, or maybe just one long loop.
  2. Place your bead board on your flat surface. A bead board is a tool that greatly facilitates the process of stringing beads, and improves your design skills rapidly. You can use it to measure the length of your necklace, while keeping the beads in place. If you plan on making necklaces regularly, or even occasionally, you should have a board at hand.
    • Place your beads in your chosen design at the number zero, and measure the length of your necklace using the numbers and dashes along the sides.
    • Use the channels for laying out beads.
    • The tray insets are for holding beads and findings.
  3. 8

    Cut your determined length of beading thread, plus 6 inches. For example, if you'd like to make a choker, cut a total of 22 inches of thread (16 inches plus 6).

  4. 9

    Gather 2 crimp beads, 1 clasp, and the beads for the desired necklace. The next part will give you tips on how to thread beads properly.
