Instructions:


  1. Cut a piece of beading wire about 12" in length.
  2. Place a bead stopper on one end of the wire and string the following beads on the strand: 20mm donut; copper seed bead; 14mm round; copper seed bead; 18mm coin; seed bead; 20mm rondelle; copper seed bead; Teardrop; copper seed bead; 10mm round; copper seed bead; 16mm donut; copper seed bead; 12mm rondelle; copper seed bead.
  3. Swap the bead stopper and finish the strand as above starting with the copper seed bead, after the 20mm donut.
  4. Cut the chain to the desired length or 4" as in my sample for a finished length necklace of 18".
  5. Add a crimp bead and a wire guardian to the end of the beading wire.
  6. Slip one end of the chain into a wire guardian and run the beading wire back through the crimp, crimping with the Magical Crimp Forming Tool.
  7. Repeat for the other side of the beaded section and chain trimming any excess wire with the nipper tool.
  8. Add the trigger clasp to one end of chain with a jump ring and then a jump ring to other piece to complete the necklace.
