Bronze Statement Necklace

This bold necklace is made up of large, flat, clear beads with bronze shimmer running through them. This necklace will be perfect to dress up any fall outfit.
Materials: flat beads, headpins, eyepins, clasp, chain, bent nose pliers, round nose pliers, and wire cutters. 
Begin making the bead dangles by threading beads onto headpins and eyepins. Bend at the top of the bead, trim the excess, and form a loop. 
Attach the beads together. 
Continue until each strand of beads is the desired length. Make sure the end bead is on a headpin. 
Attach the beads to the chain by opening the too loop of the eyepin and threading it through the link, then closing with pliers to secure it. 
Continue until all of your beads are on the chain. I skipped seven links between each bead. 
Attach the clasp to the ends of the chain. 
All finished! I just love the gold shimmer in these beads!
Xoxo, Alyssa
