need
/ thin copper bar
/ two beads
/ super glue (clear)
/ pair of pliers

Hardware and clear plastic, delicate vs chunky. My cup of tea!
Although beads are quite a staple ingredient when you think of DIY, I honestly never really knew what to do with them as besides being decorative I didn’t see a clear purpose for them. But when going through some old DIY supplies and coming across these two ice-cube lookalikes, suddenly I knew just how to put them to good use. Here’s the super simple, 3 step instructions to my double beaded, rose gold choker necklace.

1/ Measure how long you want the choker to be by putting a measuring tape around your neck. keep in mind that the opening should be around as wide as your neck so you can still can take off the necklace.
2/ Cut the metal bar to the right length and bend it around something round. I used a can of paint.
3/ Fill the beads with glue and put the ends of the copper bar through them. Let them dry and you’re all done!

  5. Superidee! Het is ook wel mooi om hem helemaal vol te hangen met ‘ijsblokjesparels’. Een ijs-efffect met nog steeds de koperdraad zichtbaar. 🙂

    Technically, it’s not a choker, it’s a necklace. But very nice, nonetheless.

  16. Where would I find a copper bar? Is that just a thicker jewelry wire? Whats the size?

    Thanks. Would love to make several of these with different beads!
