The Necklette – paper bead necklace convertable to bracelet

I can say I have come a long way turning paper beads into jewelry – rings, necklaces, earrings and bracelets. I look at the different colors and patterns of the paper beads and my mind races along with what beautiful jewelry I can make out of them.

Today, I came up with the Necklette – a necklace with magnetic closure that can be easily converted into a bracelet. I find that it is easier to string them with a silk cord and clam tips – once you have practiced doing this, you will be able to make one in 15 minutes (as long as you already have your color pattern). I think this is a great item for fund raisers and craft shows.

22 pcs. Paper beads (for a 26 inch necklace)
26 pcs. 6 mm firepolish crystal (or any 6mm bead)
#6 silk cord (color to match your beads)
GS hypocement glue or clear nail polish
2 clam tips
1 small magnetic clasp

      Hello Deborah,

      I did not mean to say that I came up with the concept, just that I came up with that project for that day. Thank you for visiting. Janice
