Orange Sunburst Necklace

The design on these pretty orange beads reminds me of the sun. I love how the AB finish contrasts with the frosted, matte finish within these beads. 
Materials: large beads and smaller beads, eyepins, chain, jump rings, clasp, bent nose pliers, round nose pliers, and wire cutters. 
Begin by making a bead chain. Thread a bead onto an eyepin, bend near the top of the bead, trim the excess, and form a loop. Continue adding beads to eyepins, and attach the beads together. 
I alternated between larger and smaller beads, as well as alternating between colors of the smaller beads. Continue until you have a chain of beads. 
Make another bead chain with on,y the smaller beads. 
Attach the bead chains to the chain by opening the end of the eyepin, and looping the chain links through. 
Attach a clasp to the ends of the chain with small jump rings. 
All finished!
Enjoy this necklace!
Xoxo, Alyssa
