Project Instructions

Step 1 Cut the flexible beading wire into the following lengths: 21", and 24".

Step 2 Holding both lengths of flexible beading wire as one, string one 7mm bronze iris shiny faceted round and a crimp tube.

Step 3 Pass the wires through the eye of one eye pin and back through the crimp tube. Crimp the tube and trim excess wires.

Step 4 Onto the 24" piece of beading wire, string three 11/0 bronze seed beads and one copper lined E-bead. Repeat six more times.

Step 5 String three 11/0 bronze seed beads, one 12x13mm champagne glass faceted drop, three 11/0 bronze seed beads and one copper lined E-bead. Repeat this Step 2 three more times.

Step 6 String three 11/0 bronze seed beads and one copper lined E-bead. Repeat six more times. Use a bead stopper to hold the beads on the flexible beading wire.

Step 7 Onto the 21" piece of flexible beading wire, string three champagne 11/0 seed beads.

Step 8 String one 6x8mm faceted rondelle and one champagne 11/0 seed bead. Repeat Step 6 five more times.

Step 9 String two champagne 11/0 seed beads and place this wire in the bead stopper as well.

Step 10 String three champagne 11/0 seed beads and place in the bead stopper with the two other wires.

Step 11 Remove the bead stopper and hold both wires as one. String a 7mm bronze iris shiny faceted round and a crimp tube.

Step 12 Pass the wire through the loop of the second eye pin and back through the crimp tube.

Step 13 Make sure the slack is taken up in both strands of wire and then crimp the tube.

Step 14 Slide an antique copper filigree cone over one of the eye pins so that the 7mm bronze iris shiny faceted round is nestled within the large end of the cone. Make a wrapped loop with the end of the eye pin that emerges from the tapered end of the cone.

Step 15 Repeat Step 14 on the other end of the necklace.

Step 16 Open the 6mm copper jump ring and slide onto it one of the wrapped loops and one lobster clasp. Close the jump ring.

Step 17 Open the 8mm copper jump ring and attach it to the other wrapped loop. Close the jump ring.
