Roses And Thorns Necklace

Roses And Thorns Necklace

Roses and thorns go together - even in this DIY necklace.

What you need

6 Royal Garden rose photobeads
42 thin red coral chips (for the thorns)
35 red seed beads with 1mm holes
2 fold over end caps
1m (40″) silver colored beading wire 0,45mm thick
2 5mm split rings
1 silver plated hook clasp or lobster claw clasp

Flat nose pliers
Wire cutters


1: Cut the beading wire in two half’s.

2: Insert ends of two wire pieces in a fold over end cap and fold down flaps using pliers. Make sure the ends are securely fixed.

3: String on the beads in the following order: 1 coral chip on one wire, 1 seed bead on both wires, 1 coral chip on the other wire. Repeat this until you have used 6 coral chips and 5 seed beads.

4: String one rose photobead on both wires.

5: Repeat steps 3 and 4 five more times.

6: After you have used the last rose photobead, repeat step 3 one more time.

7: Attach the second fold over end cap and trim excess wire.

8: Attach one split ring to each end cap.

9: Finish off your necklace by attaching the clasp.
