Beaded Daisy Necklace – Make and Fable


Make a beaded daisy necklace and earrings set using this twist on daisy chain stitch.

Beaded Daisy Necklace DIY Tutorial by Make and Fable

A couple of months ago the lovely Charlotte Jacklin shared a beaded daisy necklace on her Instagram feed. I recognised the pattern as being the classic daisy chain beading stitch, but with a twist. Normally, beaded daisy chain is made with a needle and thread in a continuous stitch. But this necklace had individual beaded daisies made hanging as individual drops! The shop Charlotte bought the necklace no longer sells them, and she mentioned having to get her teenage beading supplies out again!

This is a fairly simple project if you have some basic jewellery making skills. If you are new to beading and jewellery making, or just want a little refresher, sign up to my email list and you will get my Getting Started with Jewellery Making eBook to help you along!

You will need:

–Size 8 seed beads. A yellow for the centre of your daisies and as many other colours as you want for the petals! Each individual daisy only needs 1x centre beads and 7x petal beads.

–0.3mm/ 28 gauge soft wire. You *might* be able to get away with using a 0.4mm if it is a very soft. 0.2mm will fit through, but is very fine and tricky to work with.

–Chainnose pliers, round nose pliers and jewellery cutters

-For the earrings: earring hooks

-For the necklace: chain, clasp and 5mm jump rings.

How to make Beaded Daisies

1.Cut 25cm / 10 inches of 0.3mm wire and thread on 4 x petal beads and 1 x centre bead. Slide the beads along so the petal colour beads are approximately 10cm / 4 inches from the end.

2.Take the longer end (coming out of the centre colour bead) and thread it back through the 1st petal bead.

3.Pull tightly to form one half of your daisy.

5.Take that long end of wire and feed it through the petal bead on the opposite side of the daisy.

6.Pull tightly, using a pair of plier to help pull the wire through.

7.Your finished daisy should look like this. We now need to weave the longer piece of wire around to meet the other shorter end.

8.Feed the wire through the next 3 petal beads, so the wires are both coming out of the same bead. This can be tricky, so I recommend using pliers to help.

9.To make a loop in the wire, you need to treat these two separate wires as one, so make sure they are pulled together.

10.Use a pair of round nose pliers to create a wrapped loop. Go to this blog post for more detailed instructions on how to do this is you are new to jewellery making!
