Create Beautiful Mother of Pearl Necklaces
Crafters can make stunning mother of pearl jewelry by placing a pendant made out of this material on a necklace. It is as simple as that, and will only cost a fraction of the pricespspent on a pre-assembled necklace with a mother of pearl pendant. Personally I adore mother of pearl pendants because these sparkle in the sun, and are not pricey like real pearls. Recently I made a necklace with a mother of pearl pendant, which was quite stunning. The mother of pearl pendant has turquoise and silver colors in it, so I choose accent beads that were similar to these hues. The beads I used on my necklace are acrylic, but you can use glass beads if desired. One reason I like acrylic beads is because these are affordable and can be purchased in large quantities. For this necklace I had a pre-assembled beading wire with a magnetic clasp, which makes this an easier necklace to create. All I have to do is twist one end off the magnetic clasp and slip all the beads on to make the necklace. Usually I prefer to make my own necklaces with beading wire and by attaching a clasp with jewelry pliers, but this works fine since I already had the pre-assembled beading wire on hand. Next, I had to create the pattern for my beads, which I did by laying these out on the table first. Some people prefer to design their patterns with a bead board, but I really have never used one. So the supplies you will need for making this necklace consist:
- pre-assembled beading wire with a magnetic clasp
- accent beads
- a mother of pearl pendant
