Project Instructions

Cut one 12" piece of tiger tail. Slide a crimp bead onto the end of the tiger tail. Next, take the end of the wire and loop it back through the crimp bead leaving a small amount of extra wire as a tail. Using the flat section of the 3-in-1 beading tool, flatten the crimp bead to secure. String medium size seed beads of assorted colors onto the tiger tail. To finish the strand of beads, slide a crimp bead onto the end of the tiger tail. Take the end of the wire and loop it back through the crimp bead, leaving a small amount of extra wire as a tail. Use the beading tool to flatten the crimp bead. Repeat two more times for a total of three seed bead strands.

Cut a 3" piece of tiger tail. Insert through the ends of all three strands of seed beads. Twist the strands of seed beads. Twist the small piece of tiger tail together and insert one gold bicone bead, one blue pearl and one gold bicone bead. Using the round nose pliers, create a loop on the end of the wire and twist the end around the bottom of the loop. Cut off any excess wire. Repeat on other end of strands.

Cut two 4½" of gold chain. Attach the chain to the loop at the ends of the seed bead strands. Attach the lobster clasp. Insert a head pin through one purple bicone bead. Using the beading tool, bend the head pin at a 45° angle. Using the side cutter part, trim the edge to about ¼ inch. Make a simple loop to secure the bead. Add this dangle to the jump ring below the lobster clasp for added decoration.
