How to make the pendant necklace with beads?
Step 1: Make the pendant of ferris wheel necklace
1st, cut a length of tiger tail wire to approximately 150cm;
2nd, make a loop with two bugle beads and one tiger eye bead at wire center;
3rd, add one tiger eye bead and one bugle bead on the right wire end. Then, make a loop by threading the left wire end back through the bugle bead;
4th, repeat the process above until finished all 12 beads;
5th, make the other side of the beaded pendant. Firstly, add two bugle beads on the right wire end. Then, make a loop by threading the left wire end back through the last bugle bead;
6th, pass the left wire end through its adjacent tiger eye bead. Next, pass two wire ends through one bugle bead;
7th, tighten the wire and you’ll get the pattern as picture show. Pay attention to the position of left and right wire ends;
8th, repeat the 6th process for completing the “axles” on back side;
9th, exit the two wire ends at their adjacent bugle bead;
10th, string the 10mm turquoise bead;
11th, exit the two wire ends at the opposite blue tiger eye bead;
12th, repeat the same process on the back side;
13th, meet two ends at a location, then slide one bead tip and one crimp bead on. Knot firmly and squeeze the bead tip with pliers. Remove the excess wire and this is your beaded ferris wheel.
Step 2: Add the pendant to a leather cord
1st, hang the pendant to the leather cord;
2nd, attach the cord end on each end of leather cord;
3rd, add the clasp and jumpring.
That’s so fantastic. Actually, a joy ferris wheel necklace can pop out in quite less time, as long as you understand how to do the right angel weave stitch. Want to make the pendant necklace with beads by yourself? Tutorial found here.
