Here's what you'll need:
- One small stone. Anything roughly the size of a quarter will work. Buckeyes, arrowheads or shells can also be used.
- 4 to 8 beads. I've used wooden beads for this craft but any will do.
- 32 inches of beading cord. This will be the necklace itself. Nylon and leather work well, but I used cotton for this craft.
- 24 inches of silver wire. The label on mine says "26 gauge copper wire", but it's silver in color and very inexpensive.
Step 1: Step 1: Slip the beads on the necklace
Step 2: Secure the beads
Since this project was created for elementary school kids, I didn't want the beads sliding around (and possibly falling off), so I had them tie off the beads early in the process. You may wish to skip tying the beads in place (this step) AND tying the ends together (step 3) until you've completed steps 4 and 5.
