Intro: Tutorial: Shell Pendant Necklaces

Necklace, I love necklace! I would never feel enough with my necklace!

As there is a variety of shells, I’ve tried to make a shell pendant necklace by use of different kind of shells.

Where the shells come from? Ah, ha! Go to the seashore and you will get a lot. Or you can get it on the store if it is inconvenient.

This is what I did and can be used as a reference.

Step 1: Materials

Let’s get the list of materials and tools before making.

Materials:

Sea Shell Beads

Trumpet Shell Beads

Iron Oval Cross Chains

Iron Jump Rings

Platinum Brass Lobster Claw Clasps

Headpins

Glass Beads

Tools:

Flat Nose Pliers

Round Nose Pliers

Side Cutting Pliers

Noweverything is ready.

Step 2:

We choose a shell and wear a hole in with an iron jump ring. Then pick up an iron oval cross chain and pass the shell from the iron jump ring.

Step 3:

Select several shell beads and repeat the first move. Next, we need to find a proper place and make the shell fixed on the chain.

Step 4:

Put what’s going on aside, it is time to treat the glass beads.

Let the glass bead wear a headpin from the hole and then bend the part of the excess into a circle. One headpin, one glass bead. However, we need a special one with three glass beads in one headpin.

Step 5:

Repeat the second move and the glass beads can be fixed on the chain.

The necklace is basically finished.

Step 6:

Don’t forget the special glass beads pendant! It is a shell pendant necklace, remember? It would be great.

Cut out some spare cross chains and make one side connected with the special one glass-beads. The other side then can be connected with the necklace chain.

That’s over!

Step 7:

You can round two circles around the neck as the main picture shows, or just one circle. It's up to you.

Anyway, hoping it would bring you a good mood!
