Materials:

  • Rubber tubing
  • 2 buttons big enough to cover the end of the tube
  • Assorted pearls or beads
  • 24 gauge wire
     

Instructions:

  1. Any wording on the tube is easily removed with acetone or nail polish remover. Cut a piece (with scissors) about 2 inches long. You eventually want a section 1 1/2". You need the extra length because you will want to trim the ends until that they are straight.

  2. Cut a piece of 24 gauge wire about 12" long. Fold in half and string on a medium sized pearl.
     
  3. Twist the wire once then thread the two ends of wire through the button holes.

  4. Put the wire into the small tube. Now this is a bit tricky. Carefully pour small pearls into the tube while holding the wire taut. Thread the wires through the other button and twist them closed.

  5. Take a medium sized pearl with a hole large enough to accept two wires. Thread one wire through the pearl hole and then double it back and put it through the hole again leaving a small loop. Twist the wires around each other a few times between the pearl and the button. Snip off the excess wire.

  6. Now you have a lovely pearl pendant. I can also see this filled with tiny sea shells from a vacation at the beach or any other small mementos.
