Amber choker

Project Description

Who is this project for? Women What are you most proud of? I love the way the colors work together despite the seemingly clash of green and orange. What advice would you give someone starting this project? First you will need to cut the lengths of wire and attach the lobster claw clasp. String 1 or 2 beads onto each of the 4 wires. Then string one seed bead only all 4 wires together. This creates the first section of beads. Continue like this until you have as many sections as you want. The weight of the beads will cause them to cluster together so count on this when deciding if the necklace is long enough. Each of my clusters is only an inch long. If you are wearing this as a choker, it isn't necessary that the beads go all the way around to the back. I made an adjustable length chain out of silver jump rings or you can purchase a length of chain to use.

What you will need

  • Four lengths of clear beading wire several inches longer than the circumference of your neck
  • a lobster clasp
  • silver jump rings to make adjustable chain length in back
  • assorted glass (or genuine amber) beads in shades of red
  • orange
  • yellow
  • green and taupe (or colors of your choice)
  • shapes to include round
  • oval
  • ovoid
  • and/or bicone (faceted or smooth)
  • and several large seed beads to separate sections.
