Project Description:

So I wanted to do something different with the TiertaCast 9 Hole End Bars other than a bracelet and decided a long multi stranded necklace was in order. I chose the Flat Iron Multi Mix and found two seed bead colors I thought would compliment it. I then thought some chain and bits of TierraCast beads would add to the layers and texture!

Instructions:


  1. Start by cutting the chain into (3) 12" lengths of the (3) different chains reserving the remainder of the 3x6mm curb chain for the necklace ends.
  2. Add the chain in the following order with the antique silver jump rings: Rolo Chain to third hole from the top; 3x6mm curb chain to 6th hole from the top and the round curb chain to the last hole of the finding.
  3. Layout the chain connected ends on your work surface and dump out your TierraCast beads, I picked up my metal bits at random as I beaded the seed bead strands.
  4. Cut a piece of beading wire about 16" in length, crimping one end into the first loop of the end bar, and begin stringing the Matte Tr Gray AB seed bead including a random mix of the metal beads. Bead until you have about 12" and crimp into the coordinating hole on the opposite end bar.
  5. Continue the beading of the seed beads and metal beads in the following order: Metallic Rain; Flat Iron Multi Mix; Matte Tr Gray AB; Metallic Rain; Flat Iron Multi Mix attaching them to the holes of the end bar.
  6. Cut the remaining chain into (2) 8 1/2" lengths and attach one end of each to the loop of the end bar.
  7. Add another jump ring and the lobster clasp to the other two ends to complete the necklace.

Rating metal multi strand necklace
 
I just finished this nine strand bead and chain neckace. I have had the materials for a couple months but just recently found the time to devote to this project. The flat iron bead mix is just gorgeous and goes really well with antique silver chain as well as antique brass. Both of these 3x5mm chains here are very nice, good color, a versitile size and yippee! soldered links. Its nice to do someone else's designs occasionally. I found it fun and refreshing.

Rating Sooooo pretty!!! My new favorite design!
 
Lovely, easy to make, and I've gotten SO many compliments on it. I followed the directions and purchased exact items as described and I love it! Now, I have a new favorite design. I've already made 2 more sets: one with multi mix tourmaline seed beads (GORGEOUS) and gold chain and the other with multi mix frost flowers and bright silver filled chain. I cannot describe how pretty the frost flower set is! Love, love, love this design!
