Description

The Tree of Life symbolizes our past, present and future! So wear it with these new rice Czech glass pearls in 4 different colors draped in soft swags with the pendant suspended from one within the mix.

Karla Schafer, Aunties Beads Designer

Instructions:

  1. We will add two strands to each loop of the 2 stranded link. I string things in an asymmetrical pattern, it is my style, however this project does not have to be made this way. It is subtle and you may not even notice it.
  2. Cut 12" of beading wire and crimp one end into the bottom hole of the link using Magical Crimp Forming tool.
  3. String the following onto the strand, 3mm silver plate round, 3 rice pearl (coffee), 3mm silver plate round, etc until you finish the bead strand leaving 1 rice pearl, 3mm silver plate round on end.
  4. Crimp this end into the top hole of the second two strand link.
  5. Cut another 12" of beading wire, crimping into the same hole as the first pearl strand, but this time start the pattern off with 3mm silver plate round, 1 rice pearl (golden bronze), 3mm silver plate round, 3 rice pearls, etc until you finish the strand with 3 rice pearls, 3mm silver plate round.
  6. Crimp this end into the top hole of the second two strand link, below the first strand.
  7. Cut another 12" of beading wire, crimping into the top hole of two strand link.
  8. String the following onto the strand, 3mm silver plate round, 3 rice pearl (light coffee), 3mm silver plate round, etc until you finish the bead strand leaving 1 rice pearl, 3mm silver plate round on end.
  9. Crimp the end into the bottom hole of the two strand link.
  10. Cut another 12" of beading wire, crimping into the same hole as the first pearl strand, but this time start the pattern off with 3mm silver plate round, 1 rice pearl (yellow bronze), 3mm silver plate round, 3 rice pearls, for a total of (4) 3 rice patterns, string 3mm silver plate round, 2 rice pearls, the pendant, 1 rice pearl, 3mm silver plate round, resuming the pattern as above strands, ending this one with 3 rice beads and 3mm silver plate round.
  11. Crimp below the last strand crimped.
  12. At this point you can lengthen or shorten the overall length of the necklace. I just cut my rolo chain in half, adding 6" to each side of the necklace, by connecting the chain with a jump ring to each link.
  13. Finish the necklace by adding the lobster clasp and another jump ring to connect into.
