Hey everyone! In today’s video I share a tutorial for an original multi-component statement necklace, which you can make with the contents of the Cherry Blossom Festival Bead Box from BeadingSchool and I!

We will start by making component #1, which includes a bezel made of Vexolo beads, 4mm pearls, and seed beads, that surround an 8mm nacre pearl cabochon. Three of these components will be needed, in combination with two of our 2nd component. Those include a cushion cut crystal stone with a seed bead bezel.

Once all of the components are made, we will put them together, and create a beaded chain with seed beads and Mini GemDuo beads. Please see below for the full list of materials:
