G-S Hypo Cement or other glue
|After: Shell Necklace by GeltDesigns.com|
Bead board (optional)
Drill & micro drill bits (size 62)
Arrange the shells on the bead board in the order desired.
Submerge the shells in water and drill holes in each end. Tip: We like to use the plastic top of a Haagen Daaz ice cream container to hold the water when we drill shells.
String the shells on the wire or stringing material in the set order.
Finish the necklace by tying the stringing material in a knot and adding a drop of glue.
Warning: Be sure to allow the glue to cure overnight before wearing the necklace.
