Cut a 6" piece of wire.
Place (15) chevron beads onto the wire.
Bend the wire to a right angle at each end. Use the round nose pliers to roll the wire to a loop and wrap the loose end around to form a wrapped loop at each end.
Cut two pieces of suede cording approximately 4" longer than the desired length you want the necklace.
Feed the cording through the loop on the stack of beads.
Wrap the short end three times around the long end and feed back up through the wraps to secure.
Attach the cording crimp onto the ends of the cording and crimp with the flat nose pliers.
Attach a jump ring to each end of the necklace and, before closing one jump ring, attach a lobster claw for the closure.
Place several beads onto a head pin.
Bend the pin to a right angle and trim to ¼".
Use the round nose pliers to roll the pin to form a loop.
Before closing the loop attach an earring wire.
