Dippin' Chips

Project Description

Who is this project for? Women What are you most proud of? I'm most proud of the fact that I have a bright, cheerful, and colorful necklace that can be worn in a variety of different ways and with a variety of different items from my casual wardrobe. What advice would you give someone starting this project? The best advice I could give applies to this and any other beaded jewelry project -- use a good quality, flexible beading wire. Why would you risk investing precious time and money in any beading project by using anything less than a good quality beading wire? I use only Beadalon or SoftFlex 49-strand beading wire because of its strength and flexibility. As you can tell from the many ways I have shown that this necklace can be worn, the 49-strand beading wire is flexible enough that it can quite literally be tied in knots.

What you will need

  • One 36-in. strand of mixed gemstone chips and a handful of peacock metallic glass seed beads
  • plus Beadalon 49-strand beading wire.
