The process of making a cluster pearl necklace is described below:
Take 30-40 pearls of three different colors, same number of silver head pins and jump rings, two equal ribbon pieces and a 35cm long silver wire. Using the head pins, make wrapped loops of the pearl and add them to a jump pin. Make clusters of 5 pearls per jump ring and continue to make 17 of these clusters. On a separate length of wire, secure one end with a wire wrapped loop. Then thread on a single pearl, followed by a cluster. Alternate and continue to thread all on to the wire, keeping 2 clusters to one side. Bunch together and you start to see the full‐bodied cluster shape forming. Once all beads are on, secure the other end of the wire also with a wrapped loop. Through the loops at each end, thread the ribbon to the halfway point. Here is where the last 2 clusters come in, thread one over each ribbon at each end and place at the bottom close to the other pearls. When worn, the ribbon is used to secure the necklace around the neck.
So get ready to design and create your own pearl trinket. Youâ€™ll be able to shine in your own light.
