DIY Delicate Alphabet Necklaces

Hello, hello! Today, I will share these delicate alphabet necklaces with you. This a quick and easy alphabet project shared by Kathie who is really a beautiful jewelry maker. These kinds of necklaces can spell out anything from the name of your favorite or your favorite food name. They were love at first sight and must be a “special for you” gift for Mother’s Day. Layered necklaces become more and more popular this year. Would you like to have a try? Now I’ll give some details on making this kind of alphabet necklace.
DIY Delicate Alphabet Necklaces
The Main Materials you will need:
alphabet beads (I used acrylic beads in black and gold)
more beads, end caps, nuts as arrange with the alphabet beads or to make a layered necklace
jewelry findings
chain
eyepins – the ones I used are 5cm long and hold up to 5 alphabet beads. For longer words use longer eyepins.
The Main Tools you will need:
Sidecutter
round nose pliers
chain nose pliers
Now let’s enjoy Kathie’s detail steps of how to make alphabet necklaces:
1. String the alphabet beads and any other beads onto an eyepin. Make sure there are about 2cm left at the end to create a second eye.
Need inspiration? How about: hope, love, rain, dream, diy, bff, pizza, cake, hello, roar, meow, cool, fancy, wow, yeah, xoxo, brave, tgif, smile …?
2. Make a second eye at the end of the pin. It’s not that complicated but I would advise you to practice it a few times beforehand. To make an eye, grip the pin with the chain nose pliers right behind the last bead and bend the remaining pin into an 45° angle. Now make a loop with the round nose pliers until the end of the pin points downwards, cut away the excess wire using the sidecutter and maybe correct slightly with the chain nose pliers again. Here’s also a nice video tutorial.
3. Pick the chain up, that you want to use and cut it open at the exact opposite of the clasp. Use the sidecutter for that. The necklace has now two ends. String the last loop of each end onto an eye of the eyepin.
4. Start over and make another! The alphabet necklaces look great alone and layered. Try out a few combinations with your existing necklaces ore make new ones to accompany them. For the one with the meow necklace I just put two end caps with a large bead in between onto an eyepin. Easy peasy.

Coconut Buttons Bring You More Ideas!

Hello guys, I’m so excited to announce that our new arrivals Coconut Buttons are now added on site Pandahall. If you are an enthusiast like me who is quite obsessed with all sorts of buttons for making different crafts, I highly encourage you to try our new product line: coconut buttons. You’ll know it’s really a creative natural idea to recycle the hard shell of coconuts and turn them into useful buttons. Normally coconut shell will be first separated from the raw material and then removed the remaining flesh by machine, cut into pieces, drilled holes on into them, and dried for last step. After this, they may be painted with different colors to make them more suitable for craft designs. Just take a look at below, the coconut buttons Pandahall now launching are all affordable and comes with many shapes you might need, like round, oval, square, heart, etc. And even some bright painted colored shapes are included for you to choose from.

BUTT-O008-30B_500 BUTT-O008-29A_500 BUTT-P008-32A_500

Judging from the appearance of coconut buttons, we may feel they are generally dark rustic pieces. So if you want your designs to look more natural and plain, why not try them? They are able to combine perfectly with any of your jewelry making supplies like gems, beads, stones, twine, threads, and so on. What’s more, these big cheap buttons can add finishing touch as bracelet or necklace closures to your designs if you don’t want to use metal bracelet clasps.
