The author of this video demonstrates how to make beaded jewelry by using simple household items. The materials she uses are assorted beads, crimping beads, string, leather, and earring hooks. First, the author plans her design before she starts creating any jewelry. Once she has decided what she wants to make, the author cuts off a piece of string that is the desired length of the item. Then, she adds a clasp to make sure all the beads she plans to add stay in place. Next, she slides the desired number of beads down the necklace. Finally, she adds the second clasp to the other side of the string so that all the beads can stay in place and fit properly.
