Geometric necklaces are so mesmerizing. They give that extra edge to your look and style, and of course, they just look ultra-modern and cool. You can make your own geometric necklace with this easy DIY geometric necklace tutorial.


Before we get started, look at the tools and materials section so that you have everything needed to create this 3D geometric necklace.

Tools and materials:

  • Needle
  • Metallic tube beads
  • Medium-sized beads
  • Nylon string
  • Thread
  • Jump rings
  • Pliers
  • Necklace chain
Threading a bead onto nylon thread

1. Add the beads

Thread your nylon into your needle. Get a medium-sized bead and place it a little before the end, then tie a knot to hold it in place.

Next, thread three of these metallic tube beads onto the nylon.

And insert the needle back again through one of the side beads.

4. Create a 3D pyramid shape

Thread one more tube bead.

Threading the needle through the tube bead

Thread the needle through one of the bottom tubes, starting from the bead, as shown.

Pull the thread tight and you've made a 3D geometric necklace with a pyramid design! You could stop here if you like this shape, but I'm going to keep going to create a 3D diamond necklace.

Feeding the needle into the triangle base

5. Create a 3D diamond shape

Thread two more tube beads onto the nylon. Feed the needle through the base of the triangle, then through the connecting tube at the corner, to bring the needle to the opposite triangle point.

Threading one more tube onto the nylon

Thread one more tube onto the nylon and feed the needle through a tube on the opposite point. Pull tight and you have your diamond shape!

Threading through the tubes to make it sturdy

6. Make the geometric shape sturdy

To ensure the geometric pendant stays in place, insert the needle through the middle again. Do this a couple of times on either side.

Threading the needle back to the first bead

Finally, insert the needle through the first tube so that you revert to the point where you first started (by the bead).

Cutting out the starting bead

Tie a knot around the bead, then carefully remove it, so the shape is kept in place by the knot.

Insert the necklace chain through the jump ring.

Adding the chain ends to a second jump ring

Finally, add the ends of the chain to another jump ring, and tighten it in place to secure it.
