Project Instructions

String one 13x20 faceted oval onto a head pin. Make a wire-wrapped loop above the bead to create a dangle element. String the wire-wrapped loop onto a 20" piece of .018 flexible beading wire and center the dangle on the wire.

On each side of the pendant bead, string the following pattern: one gold-tone seed bead, one 6mm gold-tone Stardust bead, one beaded brass spacer, one faceted oval, one beaded brass spacer, one gold-tone Stardust bead, one beaded brass spacer, one gold-tone seed bead, one faceted two-hole bead, one seed bead, one beaded brass spacer, one gold-tone Stardust bead, one beaded brass spacer, one faceted oval, one beaded brass spacer, one gold-tone Stardust bead, one beaded brass spacer, one gold-tone seed bead, one faceted two-hole bead, and one gold-tone seed bead.

To start the string pattern for the back half, string one beaded brass spacer, one gold-tone Stardust bead, one beaded brass spacer, one faceted twist bead, five gold-tone seed beads, and one faceted twist bead.

String one beaded brass spacer, one gold-tone Stardust bead, one beaded brass spacer, and seven gold-tone seed beads. Repeat the same sequence a second time, then string one beaded brass spacer, one 6mm Stardust bead, and one beaded brass spacer.

On one end of the necklace, string one gold-tone seed bead, a crimp tube, and the loop half of the toggle clasp. Flatten and round the crimp bead using crimping pliers. On the opposite end of the necklace, string three gold-tone seed beads, a crimp tube, and the bar half of the toggle clasp. Flatten and round the crimp bead using crimping pliers. Use cutters to trim off any excess stringing wire.
