Beaded Flower Necklace

I found this video from Kelly, of Off the Beaded Path, for this Fun Floral Necklace. It requires SuperDuo beads, 11/0s and 8/0s. That’s it! It is fun to make, too.

Kelly gives the option of making the flower components all the way around, or making the chain-like components and as many or as few of the flowers as you like. I chose to make five flowers, and the rest chain. I made 14 chain components for each side on the red necklace, and wanted it a bit longer so I made 15 on each side for the gold necklace.

The Ingredients:  Black SuperDuo beads, Black and White striped 8/0 beads, and blue 11/0 beads.

Making the flowers is easy! String 8 SuperDuos into a circle and add an 8/0 in the center.

Add an 8/0 between each top hole of all 8 SuperDuos.

Add 3 11/0s between each 8/0.

Each flower gets ONE connector, made of 2 11/0s, a SuperDuo, and 2 more 11/0s.

Flowers are joined together by adding 11/0s to the side of one flower that doesn’t have the connector to the connector of the next flower.

After all your flowers are joined together it’s time to work on the “chain”!

The chain is basically a variation of the connectors – very easy and quick. You can even mix it up, like I did here, by using a few 8/0s in place of some of the 11/0s.

The video shows each step in detail. The whole necklace works up in a few hours!
