Project Instructions

Step 1 Crimp one end of the beading wire to the clasp of the necklace. Do this by sending the wire through the crimp and the clasp, and then back through the crimp. With your chain nose pliers, squeeze the crimp closed.

Step 2 Arrange the ceramic beads on your work table in the order you would like them strung. In between each of the tubes will be two silver balls with a stone ball in the middle. Arrange these in order as well.

Step 3 Begin stringing by adding a silver ball, a stone ball, and then another silver ball.

Step 4 Continue stringing the necklace by adding a ceramic tube, and so on.

Step 5 Once you have strung the last tube onto the necklace, string another silver ball, a colored stone, and a silver ball.

Step 6 Slide on the second crimp and the jump ring.

Step 7 String the wire back through the crimp and a few of the strung beads. Pull snug and squeeze the crimp closed.

Step 8 Trim any excess wire.
