Geometric Pendant Necklace

by | DIY, Mixed Media

Back when I had my jewelry supplies spread out all over the dining table and making new pieces, I also wanted to re-use pieces from my own collection that I was no longer wearing.  I had several chains that I like to switch out the pendants on, so I decided to create a new “pendant” for an existing chain.

Luckily, I had a pack of pretty neat looking geometric beads.  I’m not sure when or why I bought them, but they were perfect for what I wanted to do!

First, gather up your supplies – beads, long end pins, and your chain.

You’ll want to set up your design first.  Of course, I was limited by the number of beads in the package, so I made a general chevron shape.  Thread the beads onto each of the end pins to create the design you’d like.


Once the necessary beads are threaded, cut off the excess from the end pin and form an eye at the top of the beads.


Repeat the process with as many columns of beads as you want for your design, and loop them all onto your chain.  All done!

The strands tend to bunch together when I wear it, but it ends up creating a chunky look that works really well with certain t-shirts and outfits!

    This necklace is really cute! Small spacer beads between each column might help it lay a little flatter when wearing it. Just a thought. Thanks for sharing!

    ChiWei, I missed this post previously. I love this necklace. You, Adrianne, and Kadie have me wanting to take up jewelry making. Thanks for inspiring me to try something new!
