I am so excited about today’s tutorial for this romantic flower toddler necklace. My little lady has always loved things that glitter, so I have made plenty of jewelry for her over the years. Lately she has been asking to make jewelry with me, and I LOVE it! She carefully strings each bead one at a time and wears the finished products with such pride. It’s the best.
Now let me tell you how to make your own flower toddler necklace.
To make this necklace you will need the following items (I received these beads free from FizzyPops.com. You won’t need the full packs, so you can make something else as well! Use the coupon code BLING10 at checkout for 10% off! There are a few affiliate links below.):
- Faux Pearl Chunky Beads 20mm, Light Pink
- Faux Pearl Chunky Beads 20mm, White
- AB Chunky Beads 15mm, Hot Pink
- AB Chunk Beads 15mm, White
- Flower Rose Beads 20mm, Light Pink

- Heart Lobster Clasp
- a bit of chain
- jewelry beading wire (affiliate link)
- crimp beads (affiliate link)
- flat nosed pliers
- crimp nosed pliers
- wire snips
Simply lay out your beads and then start stringing! My little lady and I had a great time laying out the design, and I love that she wants to do the stringing herself now.
String the end of your beading wire through a crimp tube, through the clasp, and back through the crimp tube. Pull the wire tight enough to close most of the excess wire space. Use your crimping pliers to crimp the tube. First squeeze it with the dented section of the pliers, as shown. Then crimp it shut by squeezing it shut in the other direction using the smooth section of the pliers. Repeat on the other side, and snip off the excess wire with the wire snips.
Now throw your flower toddler necklace onto a beautiful little lady and admire her sweetness.
I hope this tutorial inspires you to create something with your little lady as well!
