  • basic necklace

    right as you probably know I'm VERY new to all this and I'm not a big jewellery wearer apart from earrings which I love
    As I work in hobbycraft I get to see lots of goodies and normally avoid the bead aisle as I just don't understand it all
    however this week I ventured down there to put stock out and knew what a lot of the bits were which is good
    however I saw these lovely little sets which have a couple of beady things ( good termonalogy lol ) to make earrings and a matching one to make a necklace out of
    we are having a stall at a local sports centre open day soon and thought it might be cool to make a couple of sets up but I dont' know where to start with the necklace
    how can I make a very very very simple necklace which isn't going to take me hours to learn a technique ??

    I hope you get a BIG staff discount! cos the few beads and findings that we sell are about 10% of their price, you could price yourself out of the market before you even start with costing your time

      urbtaf, you're doing this for a living, so there's no comparison, you buy wholesale. Some websites sell the stuff as much as hobbycraft does (I know of at least two).

      Anyhow, you can still make money out of supplies at retail prices. One of my friends made a set from glass pearls from my site, it cost her less than £10 and the set (necklace, bracelet and earrings) can probably sell for around £40 / £50. It took her 20 minutes to make (she's an expert!)

      Sunrise, if the pack has everything to make the necklace, then depending on what is in it (calottes, crimps?), it should help us guide you.

      For instance, I asked about calottes or crimps as this will lead to two different techniques to finish off a necklace.

        hi
        I do get a good discount but do tend to shop around anyway to get the best deal
        the set doesn't contain everything just 2 pendant type things to make the earrings and a bigger one to make the necklace

          Shame you're not in the hobbycraft in Preston, I could've have explained by showing you a few things!
          From what you say, there are many possibilities, using cotton/leather cord, ribbon, tigertail, illusion cord.... and for each, a different way to finish the necklace...
