Black and White with a pop of color, Red! The monochromatic play from the black and white floral pendant I resined to the striped bead's it begged for just a bit of color, the selective color effect, in the red acrylic. The necklace is finished with white silk.

I am using a resined pendant for the focal, so for a "how to", please see the 3D Lacquer Pendant Video.
- Prepare the pendant according to the video. After it has cured, follow the steps below to construct the necklace.
- Add a jump lock ring to the pendant, by slipping it into the loop, lining up the prong with the hole and smash with chain nose pliers.
- Cut a 10" piece of beading wire and crimp it into one of the pewter links, using the Magical Crimp Forming Tool.
- String the following onto the beading wire: seed bead, b/w acrylic, seed bead, b/w acrylic, seed bead, b/w acrylic, seed bead, red acrylic, seed bead, b/w acrylic, seed bead, b/w acrylic, seed bead, pendant, seed bead, b/w acrylic, seed bead, b/w acrylic, seed bead, red acrylic, seed bead, b/w acrylic, seed bead, b/w acrylic, seed bead, b/w acrylic, seed bead.
- Using the Magical Crimp Forming Tool, crimp the end into the second pewter link.
- Cut your silk in half and tie each raw end into one of the pewter links.
- To wear, simply tie the necklace at the back of the neck.
