A necklace and bracelet that are both fashionable and educational. My two year old daughter loves necklaces and bracelets, and she loves letters. I thought it would be a good idea to combine the two. I made these a few weeks ago, and have tried to wear them ever day. When my daughter sees them, she smiles and says, "ABC necklace!"

Step 1: Materials and Tools

You will be able to find these materials at a good craft store.  They may be hard to find, so you may want to ask for help.  Otherwise you may wander around finding all kinds of goodies to make other Instructables out of.

  1.  Elastic thread also called millinery elastic (I used 4mm and 6mm diameter)
  2.  Alphabet beads (I used colored hearts/beads and gold cubes) (colored cubes also shown, but not used, yet)
  3.  Barrel clasps  (You could make it without these, but they are a good finishing touch)

  1.  Scisors
  2.  Lighter or match to seal the cut ends of elastic
  3.  Your fingers and thumbs
She is precious! The necklace is so cute! Thanks for sharing! Have a nice day!<br>Sunshiine
