There’s something so eye-catching about triangular shapes and details. Inspired by my Chic Copper Triangle DIY Garland (one of my absolute favorites), this DIY triangle necklace uses ordinary beads in a simple yet offbeat way. This tutorial also provides awesome practice for beginner jewelry makers!
BEADED DIY TRIANGLE NECKLACE SUPPLIES:
- Darice 4mm Rose Gold Smooth Beads (270 total/3 packs of 90 beads)
- Darice 22 Gauge Sterling Silver Plated Copper Wire in Rose Gold
- Round Nose 3 in 1 Pliers with Cutter
- Darice Nylon-Coated Tiger Tail Jewelry Wire
- Darice 2mm Rose Gold Crimp Tubes (2)
- Darice 12mm Rose Gold Lobster Clasp (1)
- Darice 8mm 20 Gauge Rose Gold Jump Ring (1)
Step two. At one end, add a crimp tube, followed by a jewelry clasp.
Step five. Begin adding beads to the wire. The extra 1 inch should be inserted through the beads as well.
Step eleven. Create another loop at the opposite end. This completes one beaded connector.
Step sixteen. Add five more rose gold beads to the jewelry wire.
Step seventeen. Add the end of the second beaded connector to the jewelry wire, creating a triangular shape. Next, add one bead to the jewelry wire.
Step twenty-one. Add a crimp tube, followed by an 8mm jump ring.
Step twenty-three. With the pliers, flatten the crimp tube.
Now you’re ready to rock n’ roll in your new edgy DIY triangle necklace. Enjoy!
