Tip: You can wear this necklace romantically ruffled or modernly linear. Just pull the edges of the mesh away from each other to create ruffles between beads, then pull the ends of the necklace away from each to straighten the mesh.

Step #2

Twist one end of the mesh together and place it inside a fold-over cord end.

Use chain-nose pliers to flatten one flap, then press the other flap down to hold the mesh in place.

Step #4

Pass the mesh through an odd number of large-hole collectible charm beads.

Step #5

Attach a fold-over cord end to the free end of the mesh.

Step #6

Use a jump ring to attach a clasp to one end of the necklace. 

Step #7

Use a jump ring to attach an extension chain to the other end of the necklace.

Step #8

Attach the clasp to one end of the necklace..
