Creating Yarn Ball Beads
Experimenting with Colors and Textures
You can explore blending two different colors and/or textures to craft unique and personalized beads.
Diversify your collection by crafting additional beads using various colors and textures of yarn. For this project, aim to create six yarn beads to fashion a complete and vibrant necklace.
Assembling Adjustable Cord Necklace
Alternative methods to finish cord ends
There are alternative methods to finish cord ends. While this project utilizes an adjustable cord closure with a 2-hole spacer bar bead, you have the flexibility to use crimp cord end caps or tie knots for a cord loop closure.
Crimp Cord End Closure
Crimp Cord End Closure:
Secure cord ends with bead crimps for a polished finish. Slide a bead crimp onto each cord end. Use pliers to flatten the crimps, securing the cords in place. Trim any excess cord.
Create a loop at the cord end. Wrap the shorter cord around the base twice. Thread it through the two loops from top to bottom. Pull tight to secure, ensuring a snug knot.
Glue: Trim any excess cord and use jewelry glue to reinforce and secure the loop ends.
Crimp beads: Alternatively, you can opt for crimp beads to provide additional stability, securing them just below the knot for a polished finish.
Please note that any crafts or DIY projects should be attempted with caution.
