Waterfall Necklace

July 24, 2021 @ 10:30 am 12:30 pm

Waterfall Necklace

By the end of this class you will be a practiced expert at making beaded dangles with headpins! This is a great skill to learn because not only can you make this beautiful necklace, but you will be able to quickly make matching earrings to any piece of jewelry. As you can see from our two samples, you can make this piece as chunky or petite as you desire. You also can use a wide assortment of beads to make each necklace truly one of a kind.


Instructor: Bernadette

Technique: Headpin dangles

Difficulty Level: Beginner
New to beading? This is the perfect class for you! Beginner classes will teach you all the basics; no previous experience is necessary. These classes are small in size so you’ll get plenty of teacher time. You’ll begin to familiarize yourself with the terminology of jewelry making and where applicable, start to understand how to read patterns.
