Project Instructions

Step 1 Gather the Bead Gallery® gold-tone and silver spiked stud beads and the Beadalon® beading thread.

Step 2 Start with five silver spiked stud beads. Thread the beading thread through the holes on the left side of the beads, adding a clear bead before each of the five beads.

Step 3 Fold the thread up by the right side of the beads to measure the remaining length needed and trim with the wire cutters.

Step 4 Now thread this trimmed thread through the right side of the five beads, adding a clear bead between each of the five beads.

Step 5 You will now have two open ends of the beading thread at the top of the five-bead strand. Tie these strands together multiple times to make a tight knot and trim excess thread.

Step 6 Now gather four gold spiked stud beads and repeat Steps 2-5, but using only four spiked stud beads.

Step 7 Repeat Step 6 so that you have a second strand of four gold spiked stud beads.

Step 8 Now gather three silver spiked stud beads and repeat Steps 2-5, but using only three silver spiked stud beads.

Step 9 Repeat Step 8 so that you have a second strand of three silver spiked stud beads.

Step 10 Now gather two gold spiked stud beads and repeat Steps 2-5, but using only two gold spiked stud beads.

Step 11 Repeat Step 10 so that you have a second strand of two gold spiked stud beads.

Step 12 Now gather the Bead Landing™ gold jump rings and the seven spiked stud bead strands.

Step 13 Attach a jump ring through each of the two holes in the back of the bead on the end with the knotted thread. Do this for all seven spiked stud bead strands. When completing, you will have seven spiked stud bead strands, each with two gold jump rings at the top.

Step 14 Now gather the Bead Landing™ gold chain. Measure the chain to the desired length and remove excess chain.

Step 15 Measure the center of the chain, and attach the two jump rings from the five silver spiked stud beads from Step 2. This will be the center of the necklace.

Step 16 Skip 1 chain-link on the right side and attach the two jump rings of the four gold spiked stud beads from Step 6.

Step 17 Skip one chain-link on the left side and attach the two jump rings of the four gold spiked stud beads from Step 7.

Step 18 Skip one chain-link on the right side and attach the two jump rings of the three silver spiked stud beads from Step 8.

Step 19 Skip one chain-link on the left side and attach the two jump rings of the three silver spiked stud beads from Step 9.

Step 20 Skip one chain-link on the right side and attach the two jump rings of the two gold spiked stud beads from Step 10.

Step 21 Skip one chain-link on the left side and attach the two jump rings of the two gold spiked stud beads from Step 11.

Step 22 Now gather the Bead Landing™ gold lobster claw clasp and a jump ring.

Step 23 Attach the jump ring to the lobster claw clasp and attach to one end of the chain to complete the necklace.
