STAEDTLER Fimo Tile Necklace

Here's a quick project.
I had some of these STAEDTLER fimo tile beads lying around from this post begging me to make a piece of jewelry or two in some spring colours. 

I used 24 gauge silver coated wire from Gutermann and some silver coloured jump rings to join it all together.

I strung some Czech glass beads I ordered from Five Sisters on Etsy onto a home made head pin Link to tutorial Here.... then I closed the other end to make a focal cluster.

I made another of these focal clusters using a larger tile bead and strung them together with some Czech glass beads all on their own on a head pin. I joined everything together with jump rings.

I added some more glass bead clusters and attached them with six jump rings between them to make a chain.

I added a dangle bead to one end when I reached the length I wanted and a lobster claw to the other.

This is the back when it's done up. I like the dangle bead at the close of the piece. It helps me find the clasp. Makes it much easier to put on and take off. It's pretty too. A little unexpected bling under a ponytail.

Hope you feel springy too!
