Necklace DIY inspiration: Minimalist bead necklaces

Jump to Comments

There’s just one day left before our creations must be mailed off for the FLP Necklace Exchange! This is the sixth and last post in a series of DIYs and inspirations I’ve been sharing for it.

People have been sending me pictures of their necklaces since last week — they’re so fantastic! If you’re a part of the exchange, be sure to send me pics and get your package in the mail by tomorrow. For those of you working at the last minute, here’s one last round of inspiration: Eight super-simple-yet-awesome bead necklaces.

Custom wood beads and brass hex nuts on a simple cord and a mini ball chain, by Alyson Fox. You can buy a selection of Alyson’s designs here.

I’ve had this image saved on my desktop for months and can’t remember where I found it! But I love the colors and textures. This one’s all about the beads.

Handmade beads (probably clay) and brass washers on a gold chain from amerrymishap on Etsy.

Brass hex nuts, black sequins and a chain from an old broken necklace — check out Mrs Priss’ DIY for this necklace.

More great beads — vintage copper and colorful wood, by SPARKLEFARM on Etsy.

This geometric pendant was made out of Sculpey clay — get the step-by-step DIY from Dismount Creative.
