Make Your Own Linked Spiked Bead Necklace Tutorial

By on Friday, July 25, 2014 2 Comments

I don't know about you, but I find spike beads are not easy to find.  But there is a solution for that! Just check out this awesome linked bead bib-style spike necklace tutorial by Kelsey over on the Loose Ends blog. She uses beads in graduated sizes most effectively.



This project is easy for beginners and a good way to practice making wire loops!  The instructor uses bright colors which can easily be changed to other color schemies.

She also alternated the longer lengths with shorter ones.  But you could center the long ones and taper to shorter links going to the back of the necklace.

The possibilities!!

  1. I've looked at this necklace over and over Pearl -- wondering - would I wear this?

    Would you?

    Maybe I'm getting too old.

    But then again - it might look fab with the right summer outfit. You just never know until you try it on!

    Of course you could always make it with different beads as the style is neat.

    Hmm - the jury is still out on this one Pearl but thanks for finding it!

  2. Maybe it's just the bright colors? Certainly more subdued ones might be better or less spikes around? But it is a good design for an easy statement necklace.
