Boho Beaded Necklace – Video Tutorial

Boho Beaded Necklace - Single Strand to Multi and Back Again



There is one thing about making an EPIC tutorial video …

It takes FOREVER to put everything together, edit, add sound, lighten up some shots and get it all uploaded where you can share it. I’ve been working on this for exactly two weeks.

Not solid, mind you. But a good many hours.

A few of the items I mention in the video WILL BE in my etsy shop very soon.

Because I figure that if I’m going to show you HOW to make something I should also show you WHERE you can buy the elements to make it.





I’ve often looked at the big strands of coordinated beads that are so popular now and wondered what everyone is making with them. I haven’t seen very many projects with them… and that one thought is all it took to get me started.

In this video I’ll show you how I make a necklace that starts out as a single strand, goes into multiple strands and then back to a single strand.

It’s MUCH easier than it sounds and it’s a SUPER way to use those big, beautiful beads.

I hope you like the video. I’m learning to do the videos, sound, lights, editing… the whole shebang, on my own. It’s quite a learning curve but lots of fun at the same time.
