Hey beautiful! In today’s beading tutorial, I will show you how to make a quick and easy DIY beaded face mask lanyard. These wire link chains can be made with beads to match any style, wire in your choice of colors, and to any length you desire. The sky’s the limit! Please see above for info and links to recommended products.
About the Face Mask Lanyard Materials:
I really like the 24 gauge Benecreat brand wire from Beebeecraft, which is what I am using in the demonstration. The gold tone is a bit on the brassy side, but the finish does not flake or peel. The coral chips are from Bead Box Bargains, and the 5mm Czech glass fire polish beads are from the Dollar Bead Box.
In the video I show another variety of finished beaded chain, which incorporates agate pebble beads. Those beads are from the August 2020 Bargain Bead Box subscription: (Use Code OPAL2 at checkout for $2 off first month). See the latest unboxing video.
This tutorial is not only helpful for making beaded mask lanyards, but for all sorts of other beading projects as well. Make wire wrapped beaded chain necklaces, bracelets, anklets, and even items like eye glasses and badge holders. Have fun dreaming up all of the possibilities!
