Do you have a box full of broken jewelry or perhaps a pile of pieces for one reason or another you just don’t wear anymore?
I certainly do, and my box is quite full!
In today’s video I will show how I take one of my earliest pieces of jewelry and give it a makeover.
You’ll also learn a cool way to string a bead soup assortment of beads onto monofilament cord and create the illusion of floating and beautiful rippling bead strands.
Along the way you’ll learn how to use bead tips to finish your necklace and a few ways to fine tune the adjustments.
Tools and Materials:
- Monofilament cord
- An assortment of small beads, such as these (often called “bead soup”)
