We have all seen the beaded, pearl necklaces all over TikTok lately. We decided to give them a try ourselves. These necklaces are super easy to make and would be an awesome activity for a girls night. Weather you are experienced with jewelry making or have never made a piece of jewelry in your life, these necklaces are a great activity for anyone and everyone.

We started by heading to Micheals to get all the necassary suppies and the beads of our choice. The great thing about these necklaces is that you can completely customize them to your personal style. We choose to make ours with silver chains, but you can use any metal of your choosing. We also picked out tons of beads that we thought went together well. Below is a list of the supplies we used.


Here is a supply list of things you NEED:

Tools

Wire Cutter

Kitchen Scissors

Pliers

Crimper

Lobster Claw Clasp

Large Silver Chain
