My toddler is a little BB8 fanatic. That little droid is her favorite part of the new movie and she was quite upset every time he wasn't on screen. I bought her this darling BB8 dress and decided to make her a necklace to go with it. This necklace is incredible easy to make and you can customize it to match any Star Wars character!
Fizzy Pops is where I get the supplies for all of my bubble necklaces. They have an amazing selection. Here is what I used for these necklaces.
You will need from Fizzy Pops:
- 12 mm white beads
- 12 mm orange beads
- 10 mm orange and white striped beads
- Bottle cap pendants
- epoxy stickers
- 6mm jump rings
- lobster clasps
- crimp beads
- beading wire
Close a 6mm jump ring and slide it on the end of your wire. Loop the wire around the ring and then slide two crimp beads over both sections of wire. Use a pair of pliers to crimp the crimp beads down until they are tight and flat. You can also add an extender chain at this point, if you want to. For detailed instructions on adding an extender chain, check out the Fizzy Pops tutorial here.
bottle cap pendant
Slide a lobster clasp onto a 6mm jump ring and then close the jump ring. Slide the jump ring onto the wire and then double back the wire through the crimp beads and a couple extra of the necklace beads. Crimp the crimp beads until they are tight and then trim the excess wire.
Allow the glue to dry completely before wearing.
