Me and my best friend are crazy for jewelry; unfortunately, she is allergic to metal which means that a lot of jewelry is not available to her. So, she always searches for something that doesn’t harm her. A lot of people out there have the same problem and they also need to use non-metallic accessories. For all those friends, let me share some ideas to use non-metallic ingredients and wooden beads into beautiful necklaces.
Necklace using ribbon or silk cords:
1st of all, you will need some wooden beads, coordinating thin ribbon or silk cords (you can use any ribbon you have, even the decorated, shiny, polka dotted or striped) a yard of each, and stoppers to stop the beads. String your beads onto your ribbon and cut it according to your required length, now finish with a bit of transparent nail polish to restrain your ribbon from unraveling. Your cute and easy necklace is ready to wear.
Necklace using painted beads:
The ingredients you are going to need in painting beads are wooden beads of different shapes, acrylic paints, foam brush, skewers, and tape. If your beads have large holes, wrap the tape around the skewer and mount your bead over it. Paint your desired color using a foam brush on the beads and let it dry by placing the skewer in a glass. Apply another code to get the required shade. You can use glossy protective sealant to give your beads shine. Once your beads are fully dry, you can use different shapes in a combination and make funky and attractive necklaces by stringing them onto different cords or wires as per your desire.
Necklace using geometric wooden beads:
The things you will need to make a cute funky necklace are geometric wooden beads of different colors, leather or suede cords (you can use tan, brown, or black colored cord as per your requirements). All you need to do is string different colored geometric beads onto the cord and wear it as your style.
I hope you all will find these ideas interesting and easy, do try any of these simple ideas to make your own style necklaces and also share it with your friends. You can also make them and gift them to your friends; they will surely love your effort and the token of love you are giving them.
