Emerald Bib Necklace

These faceted emerald beads make a beautiful bib style necklace that is sure to sparkle for any occasion!
Materials: two sizes of teardrop beads, chain, headpins, jump rings, clasp, bent nose pliers, round nose pliers, and wire cutters. 
Thread a bead onto a headpin, bend with the bent nose pliers, and trim the excess. Begin to form a loop. 
Cut a piece of chain, and attach the bead drop to a link around the center. 

Continue adding these bead drops, skipping three links of chain between each one. 
Repeat to make another chain with the smaller beads. 
Make sure the beads are centered on the chain, and the smaller bead chain is a bit shorter than the other chain. Attach the two lengths of chain together to the clasp with a jump ring. 
Repeat for the other side of the clasp, and you're finished!
Enjoy this necklace!
Xoxo, Alyssa
