Pearl and Onyxt Beads in 3 Strand Beaded Necklace Jewelry Making Project This choker length necklace is a compliment to the 3 Strand Beaded Bracelet.  It uses the same approach as we used in the bracelet.  We make the findings for either end of the necklace and for the spacer bars that keep the 3 strands in position using one of our WigJig jewelry making tools and we string beads on Soft Touch or Soft Flex bead stringing wire to make the three strands of beads. 

To view a larger picture of this necklace, select the word "Large" in the linking text above, or select the picture at right. 

This is an advanced beginners jewelry making project and can be made on any of our WigJig tools with just six regular metal pegs and two 3/16" Super Pegs.  The Super Pegs are used to make the jewelry wire chain at one end of the necklace that allows the necklace to be adjustable in length.  For this choker length necklace, we want the necklace to be relatively snug to the wearer's neck, but we don't want the choker to become a choking necklace.  The chain we make at the end of one side of the necklace allows us to vary the length of the necklace to accommodate the wearer.
