Project Instructions

Step 1 String one teardrop slider onto a 22" piece of .018 flexible beading wire through the wider set of holes and center the dangle on the wire.

Step 2 On each side of the centered teardrop slider, string the following pattern: one gold seed bead, one brass spacer bead, one 8mm blue iris round, one large top-drilled teardrop, one 8mm blue iris round, one brass spacer bead, one gold seed bead, one teardrop slider (strung through the wider side), one gold seed bead, one brass spacer bead, one 8mm blue iris round, one large top-drilled teardrop bead, one 8mm blue iris round, one brass spacer bead, one small blue teardrop, one brass spacer bead, one 8mm blue iris round, and one brass spacer bead.

Step 3 String three 6mm faceted rounds, one brass spacer bead, three 8mm blue iris rounds, one brass spacer bead, three 6mm faceted rounds, one brass spacer bead, three 8mm blue iris rounds, one brass spacer bead, three 6mm faceted rounds, and one brass spacer bead.

Step 4 On one end of the necklace, string one gold 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 one gold seed bead, 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.
