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!
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!
