How to Make a Simple Gemstone Necklace


With gemstone beads, every bead is precious. Every bead is beautiful. A little more effort is needed when stringing a gemstone necklace together.

First, decide on the design. Take a fishing line and string the gemstone beads through it. Hold the string of beads around your neck in front of the mirror to see how the necklace would look. When you are pleased with your design, then start stringing the beads together properly.

For that, you need colored thread that matches the beads and some nylon thread to strengthen the necklace and to needles that can go through the beads, 1 at a time.

Thread both needles with as much colored string and nylon thread as they can take.

Twine an end of the strings from both needles together Thread the needles through the hole on one side of the clasp and tie decorative knots to secure the strings to the clasps.

Use both needles and tie a knot as close to the clasp as possible.

Slip both needles through the first bead, one needle at a time, then tie another knot to secure the bead. Make sure the knot is large enough so the bead cannot slip over the knot. Slip the needles through the next bead and tie another large knot to secure the bead. Repeat the process until you have secured all the beads for your necklace.

Now slip the needles through the hole at the other part of the clasp and tie a decorative knot as close to the beads as possible. Slip the needle back through the previous bead to hide the string and then snip off the excess string.

That's it. Now you have a simple gemstone necklace. If you do want something more modern, check out these gem beads necklace.
