Project Instructions

Step 1 Gather the glass faceted silver 10mm beads and the beading wire. Thread 15 beads onto the beading wire. Using the Bead Landing™ crimp tubes with loop and the end strand, insert the end of the beading thread into the crimp tube until it meets the hole of the loop. Using your chain nose pliers, fold over both open edges of the crimp tube and press firmly. Make sure the wire is held tightly with the crimp tube. Repeat this crimp tube closure step on the remaining end and trim any access wire. Add a jump ring through the crimp tube on both ends.

Step 2 Now gather the silver iris glass faceted 8mm round beads and the beading wire. Thread 19 beads onto the beading wire. Using the Bead Landing™ crimp tubes with loop and the end strand, insert the end of the beading thread into the crimp tube until it meets the hole of the loop. Using your chain nose pliers, fold over both open edges of the crimp tube and press firmly. Make sure the wire is held tightly with the crimp tube. Repeat this crimp tube closure step on the remaining end and trim any access wire. Add a jump ring through the crimp tube on both ends.

Step 3 Now gather the jet glass 8mm faceted beads and the beading wire. Thread 19 beads onto the beading wire. Using the Bead Landing™ crimp tubes with loop and the end strand, insert the end of the beading thread into the crimp tube until it meets the hole of the loop. Using your chain nose pliers, fold over both open edges of the crimp tube and press firmly. Make sure the wire is held tightly with the crimp tube. Repeat this crimp tube closure step on the remaining end and trim any access wire. Add a jump ring through the crimp tube on both ends.

Step 4 Repeat Step 3 so that you have a second strand of the jet glass 8mm faceted beads.

Step 5  Next gather the silver glass 3mm faceted round beads and the beading wire. Thread 56 beads onto the beading wire. Using the Bead Landing™ crimp tubes with loop and the end strand, insert the end of the beading thread into the crimp tube until it meets the hole of the loop. Using your chain nose pliers, fold over both open edges of the crimp tube and press firmly. Make sure the wire is held tightly with the crimp tube. Repeat this crimp tube closure step on the remaining end and trim any access wire. Add a jump ring through the crimp tube on both ends.

Step 6 Now gather the 3-ring closure and the bead strand from Step 1. Using the jump rings on the end of the bead strand, attach the strand to each end of the 3-ring closure.

Helpful Hint: You will attach this strand to the left, outside loop of the closure.

Step 7 Now gather the 3-ring closure and the bead strand from Step 2. Using the jump rings on the end of the bead strand, attach the strand to each end of the 3-ring closure. Helpful Hint: You will attach this strand to the right, outside loop of the closure.

Step 8 Now gather the 3-ring closure and the bead strand from Step 3 & 4. Using the jump rings on the end of the bead strands, attach both strands to each end of the 3-ring closure. Helpful Hint: You will attach both strands to the middle loop of the closure.

Step 9 Now gather the 3-ring closure and the bead strand from Step 5. Using the jump rings on the end of the bead strands, attach both strands to each end of the 3-ring closure. Helpful Hint: You will attach both strands to the middle loop of the closure (in between the strands from Steps 8-9).

Step 10 On the end of the 3-ring closure with the open loop, attach 2 jump rings and the lobster clasp closure.

Step 11 Your design is now complete!
