Learn How to Make Beaded Necklaces, Chokers & Lariats
We love designing beaded necklaces, lariats and chokers! Our favorite designs always include beads to complement the wire designs we make on our jigs. There is nothing more satisfying that sitting at the designing table and bringing forth your creativity to transform an initial idea into something even more unique and beautiful. Because beaded necklaces have more length with which to work than bracelets or rings, the ability to combine wire components separated by beads, or beaded necklace components separated by wire or other non-beaded components is fabulous!
We have so many beaded necklaces, lariats and chokers designs in this section to get your creative juices flowing. You will want to peruse our comprehensive catalog of beaded necklace design to trigger great ideas such as Wire Bead Chokers, Beaded Spirals, Crystals, Pearls and Gems necklaces and more. We even have a Beaded Lace Dangle that can turn your beads into a lacey necklace dangle – a design that just happens to be one of our most popular. Our Tattoo Jewelry designs show how just a few beads and some colorful bead stringing materials can make jewelry that is trendy, inexpensive, and yet so popular.
Finally, beaded necklaces can be designed in virtually any color, style, and complexity. You can hang just a few uniform-colored beads on a WigJig component and string it on a simple chain to achieve a delicate, understated look. You can also string a complex variety of different colored beads combined with metal or leather components, resulting in a jaw-dropping design that will garner compliments from across a room!
Designing beaded necklaces is limitless. We hope you enjoy this section of beaded necklaces, lariats and chokers!

The instructions for making the Braided Gems Necklace provided below are some of the older instructions on our WigJig web site. The technology used to present these instructions is older technology with the main instructions being provided as one or more pictures (.jpg). For this reason it is impossible for us to edit these instructions to provide the added details that we provide in our newer jewelry making instructions. These instructions may not be suitable for a beginner to making jewelry with wire and beads because we do not clearly state which jewelry tools are required, what length of jewelry wire to cut and what size of beads to use. For people who are more experienced in making jewelry these instructions should be adequate. We apologize for the lack of detail. We are smarter now and use better technology to document our newer jewelry making designs.
