You will need from Fizzy Pops:
- 20 mm black beads
- 12 mm orange beads
- 6 mm Spacer Beads
- Bottle cap pendants
- epoxy stickers
- 6mm jump rings
- lobster clasps
- crimp beads
- beading wire
First you will need to cut your wire the desired length of your necklace plus 1.5 inches on each side. My wire is 20 inches long, plus the 1.5 inches on each side, for a total of 23 inches.
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.
After your beads are crimped. you are ready to add your necklace beads. The idea behind this necklace is to make the beads look like little Oreo Cookies with white beads sandwiched in between black ones. Here is my necklace pattern for this necklace:
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.
You necklace is now ready to add the image to the center! Do a search for an image you love Pull it into a photo editing program, any program or app should be able to crop it. You want the image to print about 3/4 of an inch high. Use a 1 inch circle hole punch to punch out the image after it is printed.
Place an epoxy sticker on top of the image and rubbed the back to make sure all air bubbles were gone. Add a small amount of a strong glue (like E-6000) to the bottle cap and gently press your image with epoxy sticker to the bottle cap.
Allow the glue to dry completely before wearing.

This is the cutest oreo necklace that I've seen. This is why I love DIY accessories because you get to choose your designs. It's quite easy to make and it's perfect for oreo lovers, we're huge fans of oreos at home too.

These are so cute! I love Oreos, so I love the fact you've used that as your theme here. DIY accessories always throw me as I'm not as creative but would love to try for myself!
I love it. It's been a long time since I've had the pleasure of eating an oreo. Maybe one day they'll make them gluten free.

My son is obsessed with Oreos. It's very funny, because he swears he hates chocolate, but adores Oreos. This is such an adorable necklace!

This looks like such a fun project to do. Maybe I'll try it but with Turquoise and white instead! I'm into this whole mermaid vibe at the moment. XD

This looks so elegant! Definitely something you could wear out, with a little splash of conversation because of the OREO. Very cool.
