Step 1 Cut about 4" of beading wire.
Step 2 Slide a crimp onto one end of the wire, loop the short end of the wire back through the crimp (forming a small loop at one end of the wire), and use the crimper to secure the crimp in place.
Step 3 Slide two beads of each color onto the wire, as pictured.
Step 4 Slide a crimp onto the end of the wire and loop the wire back through the crimp to form a small loop at the end of the strand of beads. Use the crimper to secure the crimp in place.
Step 5 Cut chain to desired length of necklace.
Step 6 Using the chain nose and flat nose pliers, open a gold jump ring. Attach the gold jump ring to the loop at one end of the bead strand and to one end of the chain. Attach a second jump ring to the other end of the bead strand and to the other (loose) end of chain.
Step 7 If your necklace is not long enough to fit over a person’s head, you can add a lobster clasp. To add the clasp, find the center of the chain and open it. Attach a lobster clasp with jump rings to the new loose ends of chain.
