Project Instructions

Step: 1

Necklace


Step: 2

Cut the flexible beading wire into the following lengths (in inches): 19, 22, 24, 25, 27, 28, 30 and 33. Cut the French wire into 16 ½-inch pieces.


Step: 3

Unfasten the clasp of the silver small ball chain necklace and use the wire cutters to cut off the clasp, leaving the chain with one soldered loop remaining on each end.


Step: 4

Slide 1 4mm silver plated round and 1 3mm silver plated round onto an eyepin. Make a simple loop. Attach the loop closest to the 4mm round to the soldered loop of the necklace chain. Repeat this step for the opposite end of the necklace chain.


Step: 5

String 1 crimp tube and a piece of French wire onto the 19-inch piece of beading wire. Pass the end of the wire through the first loop of the clasp and back through the crimp tube so that the French wire makes a horseshoe shape. Crimp the tube, trim the excess tail of the wire and string 1 3mm silver round and one 4mm silver round.


Step: 6

String 115 4mm hematite rounds.


Step: 7

String 1 4mm silver round, 1 3mm silver round, 1 crimp tube, a piece of French wire and the corresponding loop of the other half of the clasp. Pass the wire back through the crimp tube, remove excess slack in the strand and crimp the tube. Trim excess tail of wire.


Step: 8

Open the loop of the eyepin connected to the necklace chain in step 3. Attach it to the first loop of the clasp. Repeat for the opposite side of the chain and clasp.


Step: 9

Repeat steps 4 through 6 using the 22-inch piece of beading wire and stringing 73 4x6mm jet rice pearls. Attach the strand to the first loop of the clasp.


Step: 10

Repeat steps 4 through 6 using the 24-inch piece of beading wire and stringing 140 4mm jet glass rounds. Attach the strand to the second loop of the clasp.


Step: 11

Use a 6mm jumpring to attach each end of the 22-inch length of 4x5mm silver plated chain to the second loops of the clasp.


Step: 12

Repeat steps 4 through 6 using the 25-inch piece of beading wire and stringing the 7x12mm jet shell ovals alternating with 3mm silver rondelles. Attach the strand to the second loop of the clasp.


Step: 13

Use a 6mm jumpring to attach each end of the 23-inch length of large link silver plated chain to the second loop of the clasp.


Step: 14

Repeat steps 4 through 6 using the 27-inch piece of beading wire and stringing the 11.5mm jet shell lentils alternating with 3mm silver stardust rounds. Attach both strands to the third loop of the clasp.

Use a 6mm jumpring to attach each end of the 24-inch length of 3x4mm silver plated chain to the third loop of the clasp.

Cut the flexible beading wire into 7 9-inch strands. Cut the French wire into 14 3/8-inch pieces.


Step: 23

String 1 crimp tube and a piece of French wire onto a piece of beading wire. Pass the end of the wire through the first loop of the clasp and back through the crimp tube so that the French wire makes a horseshoe shape. Crimp the tube and trim the excess tail of the wire.


Step: 24

String the 4mm hematite rounds.


Step: 25

String 1 crimp tube, a piece of French wire and the corresponding loop of the other half of the clasp. Pass the wire back through the crimp tube, remove excess slack in the strand and crimp the tube. Trim excess tail of wire.


Step: 26
