Free Instructions: Talisman Necklace


We just love our little glass evil eye beads!

We've designed a simple and stylish necklace, using basic wirework techniques,  adorned with seed beads and little blue talismans beads. 

Most often related to Greek culture, the evil eye is found across the world. The talisman is thought to deflect malevolent wishes back to the source. Our little evil eyes are small enough to make into jewellery, allowing you to carry your talisman with you.

What beads will you use? We think this design would be so fun to make with our polymer clay beads too! 


Materials Needed:

7 x 8mm blue evil eye glass beads (GLEE17
14 x 3mm metal beads (MTEA3032)
14 x size 8/0 dark blue seed beads (S842)
7 x eye pins (EPGP)
1 x assembled belcher chain (CHF18GP)
1 x tigger / extension chain ( EXCH5GP-2 )

Tools Required

Side cutters (PR1SC BEESC)
Round nosed Pliers (BEERN)
Chain Nosed Pliers (BEECN)
Bead Mat (BMT2)

Instructions

1. Pop your beads on an eye pin, using side cutters, trim the eye pin and turn a neat loop. We repeated this seven times. TIP: when you've got a repeating element it's always best to stick to an odd number where you can (photo 1)
2. We used an assembled chain, as it already has its clasp and extension chain on! Using side cutters, we cut small, even lengths of chain - our sections were 15 links long,  used these to connect our evil eye beady sections (photo 2) Making sure to finish with the clasp on one end, and the extension chain on the other.
