Free DIY Beaded Necklace Idea by Jamie Hogsett10:45 AM
Here's an updated version of the Tranquility Necklace, made a few years ago when the original Trios wire sets debuted. This newer necklace has fewer beads and braided sections, for a lighter look and feel.
This necklace uses three different Czech glass beads, ranging in size from 5mm to 8x12mm; Soft Flex Beading Wire, .019 diameter, in Black Onyx, Tanzanite, and Butterscotch Imperial Topaz; and silver 2mm and 3mm crimp tubes.
The only tools you'll need to make your own are regular and Mighty crimping pliers, and wire cutters. Bead Stoppers help a lot too. Enjoy!
