Single strand necklace

Make the loops

Grab your headpin and string through a bead. Now, you will be making two loops on either side. With your round nose pliers, bend the headpin at a 90-degree angle and then curl it around into a perfect loop.

For the second loop on the other side, cut the head pin so that you have enough length for another loop and repeat the same process.

Make 6 of these beads, as shown.


To see how I make these two loops in real-time, skip to 1:47 minutes of my mask chain tutorial. 

How to make a face mask chain

Assemble the chain

Measure 2 inches on your chain and cut. Then, cut another chain with a 2-inch length.

Now, open one side of the loop and slide a loop from another bead. Then, close the gap very tightly. 

Add a third bead by repeating the same process as above. You should now have three linked beads. Open one of the side loops and attach one of the 2-inch chains on the last link. Be sure to close the loop tightly afterward. 

On the other end, attach the longer chain, as shown. 

On the other side of the long-chain, add three beads and finish off the pattern with the second 2-inch chain. 

To finish off the chain, add a jump ring to one side with a lobster clasp; using your long nose plier tool to open and close the ring accordingly. Repeat the process on the other short end of the long-chain, 

What do you think of this beauty of a face mask? It’s super unique and gives you that extra edge!

Prep your chains

This mini-tutorial is relatively easy to create as you just need a double chain. Make sure it is the same length before you go ahead and add the lobster clasps.

Now, with the help of your pliers, open the jumper ring and insert your first chain. Insert the short end of the second chain, and insert a lobster clasp, too. 

Close the jump ring and make sure there are no gaps. 

Repeat the process on the other side. 

There you have it! Adding a mask chain is such a super cool idea! Wearing masks is still super important for some, and so you can still look chic and amazing while keeping safe. Thanks for joining me, and I hope you enjoyed this tutorial!
