Project Description:

Our line of recycled glass is meant to resemble real sea glass, so it is perfect for summertime. The neutral shade of these peach glass rounds pair perfectly with the Miyuki cubes. Antique brass spacers and a pretty filigree focal add just the right amount of metal to the necklace. Just pair this summery piece with a tan and you're ready to go! Try it with silver and blue glass beads if you prefer cooler hues. Or, to update this piece for Fall or Winter, try it with antique copper and dark red glass beads.

Instructions:


  1. Cut an 18 inch piece of beading wire with your nipper or preferred cutting tool.
  2. On a head pin, place 3 cubes, a spacer, a recycled glass round, a spacer and 3 more cubes. Above the beads, use your round nose pliers to make a small loop and then wrap the wire around itself once or twice. Trim the excess and repeat this on a second headpin.
  3. Repeat the previous step on 2 headpins but use only 2 cubes. Then, repeat this process on 2 more headpins with only 1 cube on either side of the glass round. Set all 6 headpins aside.
  4. To prepare your focal, place 2 cubes on an eyepin. Open the eye of the pin and dangle your filigree focal from it. Above the 2 cubes, use your round nose pliers to create a loop and wrap the wire around itself once or twice. Trim the excess. Then, take a headpin and place 3 cubes, 1 spacer, 1 round, a second spacer and 3 more cubes. Then, create a rosary loop above it using your round nose pliers. Dangle it from the bottom hole of the filigree pendant.
  5. Now we are prepared to start stringing. Add your beads in the following pattern: 3 cubes, three glass beads with spacers on both sides of each bead, 3 cubes, three glass beads with spacers on both sides of each bead, 3 cubes, etc. Repeat this pattern until you have 4 sets of 3 glass beads strung. End with 3 cubes.
  6. After your 3 cubes, add the headpin you made earlier that has 1 cube on either side of a glass bead. Add 4 cubes, and then add the headpin you made earlier that has 2 cubes on either side of a glass bead. Add 4 cubes and then add the headpin you made earlier that has 3 cubes on either side of a glass bead. Then, add 6 cube beads and string on your focal. Continuing stringing so that the other side of the necklace matches. Then, simply add both sides of your clasp by stringing on a crimp bead, looping around the clasp, stringing back through the crimp and the first several beads, pulling tight and flat crimping. Trim your excess wire.
