Valentines day is right around the corner and I needed well..wanted a sparkly necklace to wear with my V-day outfit. I stumbled upon these slider beads while bead shopping and thought, hey this would make for a great necklace. The rest is kinda history. Check out the steps below:

Things you need:

    • Large/Medium jump ring
    • 2 lengths of chain
    • Lobster clasp

When you flip over your bead you will notice there are small holes at each corner. We will use these to connect the necklace together.

Using your pliers, slide a jump ring through one of the holes on your bead and close. Slide another jump ring through your second bead then connect to jump ring from your first piece.
