on this trip to the flea market when I was still pregnant with Hayden and have played around with them off and on a few times now, not quite getting the design or configuration to my liking. They’re gorgeous, very earthy feeling beads from Africa, so I wanted to really make something special out of them. While I absolutely love this piece, I think I’ll go back and restring it with a few tweaks. It’s not exactly perfect and to my liking, but the overall design is exactly what I’ve envisioned, so I thought I’d share it with you nonetheless. So here’s the how-to for making an earthy beaded necklace.ombre seed bead necklace. Once you’ve familiarized yourself with what you’ll need (beading wire, lobster claw closures, jump rings and jewelry pliers), pick out some beads you love and begin stringing. Make up random configurations and designs, so that they all come out different, yet the individual strands complement each other. To get a layered look, make them each a varied length, anywhere from 10″-4″. If you want more of a thicker, cluster look, as seen in this statement necklace, then make the strands similar lengths.these Anthropologie ones. But the more I made, the more I didn’t like how they looked when separated. So I decided to cluster them all together and add them to one big jump ring, which is why there are each on their own jump ring. As I did in my ombre seed bead necklace, I’d redo this one by just stringing them directly onto the big jump ring. I might make the strands a bit longer or shorten the chain too, so you don’t see so much of the plain gold chain.
