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
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.

8: Attach one split ring to each end cap.
9: Finish off your necklace by attaching the clasp.
