Branch Out Coral and Chain Necklace
Click Image to Enlarge

I am so ready for some sun and beach time that when presented with the branch coral pewter pendant, I immediately went for a design that evoked that summer time feel. I took a strand of Red Coral Nuggets, Orange Coral Rounds, White Alabaster Bicones and chain to create this ensemble.

This project requires knowledge of drop beading. For more information on this technique, please watch the Drop Beading video.

  1. Attach the pendant to one end of the chain, by opening the chain link using two pairs of chain nose pliers, adding the pendant and close.
  2. Drop a bicone, coral nugget, orange coral round onto a head pin and start a loop, slipping into the link the pendant is hanging from, closing the loop with three wraps.
  3. Make a second drop consisting of a coral nugget, orange coral round, bicone and start a loop, slipping into the link above the previous one, closing the loop with three wraps.
  4. On the other end of the chain, open the link as above and add the Hook half of the clasp.
  5. Cut a piece of beading wire about 12" in length stringing on a crimp bead and a wire guardian.
  6. Slip the wire guardian and wire onto the sixth link from the pendant, crimping the crimp bead with the Magical Crimp Forming Tool.
  7. String the following beads onto the beading wire: *nugget, round, bicone, nugget, round, nugget, bicone**. Repeat (*-**) two more times. String nugget, round, bicone, nugget.
  8. To complete the necklace string a crimp bead, wire guardian, slipping it into the "o" ring of the clasp set and crimp.
