Beaded Scissor Fob Supply List

The beaded scissor fob class will be held on the weekend of February 16-17.  These are so pretty…and so quick and fun to make.

Here are some examples of fobs that I have made in the past:

Supplies that you will need:

* Beading thread
* Pretty beads (the ones that come strung on cards often have smaller coordinating beads along with the larger ones.)
* Spacers (the metal decorative beads shown above…you don’t need to use these, but they are a nice touch and good to at least use at the top and bottom of the fob.)
* Charm 
* Jump ring
* Lobster claw clasp (large enough to hook onto a pair of scissors)
* Needle (any size will work, as long as it will pass through the holes in the beads that you have selected)
* Scissors
* Clear nail polish (optional)

Edited to add:  I have found all of my beads & beading supplies at either Hobby Lobby, Michael’s or Walmart.  The charms that I used were from Walmart, and the glass beads were from Hobby Lobby.  Any of the places mentioned carry spacers, jump rings, and beading thread.  I am pretty sure that the large lobster claw clasps were found at Hobby Lobby.  They have their stock organized more by brand then category, so you may have to check in a couple of different spots in the beading aisle.   The ones that I used measure about 1 inch from end to end, and about 1/2 inch wide.

So, gather your supplies and get ready for a fun class!  Please let me know if you have any questions about the supply list :)

  1. Hi just wanted to know where you got your lobster claw clasps…the biggest I can find are 16mm but I’ve noticed for gingher scissors they’re a little tight. Do you know of any place that would sell a 18mm or even a 20mm? Looking forward to the class, I’ve never made a fob using beading thread before🙂

  2. Oh, thank you so much for this class. I have some lampwork cat head beads and a scissor fob was exactly what I wanted to do with them. This idea would also make a great bookmark. Ana
