red and black lava bead collar necklace

Step 1
Open a jump ring, add a lobster clasp and close jump ring. Set aside. 
Step 2
Cut 20" of bead stringing wire.  
Step 3
Tie one end of the wire onto a jump ring. Make a few knots and then slide on a crimp bead. Push it tight against the knot and then flatten it with your needle nose pliers. 
Step 4
Slide 18 red wood beads to the wire. Slide on one 8mm lava bead, one 10mm lava bead, one 8mm bead, one red wood bead, one clear glass bead, one red wood bead, one 8mm lava bead, three 10mm lava beads, one 8mm lava bead, one red wood bead, one clear glass bead, one red wood bead, one 8mm lava bead, one 10mm lava bead, one 8mm bead and 17 red wood beads.
 
TIP: Be sure to tuck the excess wire into the first few red beads added to wire.
Step 5
Slide a crimp bead onto the wire, thread the end of the wire through the jump ring with the clasp and then down through the crimp bead. 
Step 6
Thread the wire end through three beads. Hold onto the last bead and carefully pull the wire end until the beads are tightened up on the wire. 
Step 7
While holding the wire firmly through the third bead, flatten the crimp bead with your needle nose pliers. 
Step 8
Tie a few knots in the wire below the third bead.
 
TIP: For extra security, add a dab of glue.
Step 9
Trim excess wire and tuck into beads.
