Cassandra Necklace

NEW
PROJECT N2298
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
Lime and turquoise swirl beads are strung in this long necklace softened by matte gold beads.
Instructions
This necklace measures 24 inches without the 2 inch chain extender. To modify the length, simply adjust the number of beads strung and/or the chain extender.
  1. Begin by cutting off 32 inches of beading wire and adding a bead stopper to one end about 4 inches from the end.
  2. Then string on the beads in the following order: 1 gold oval, 1 blue oval, 1 gold oval, 1 blue oval, 1 gold oval, 1 blue oval, 1 gold oval, 1 blue oval, 1 gold oval, 1 blue oval, and 1 gold oval. Then 5 green cubes, 1 gold oval, 1 blue saucer, 1 gold oval, 1 blue saucer, 1 gold oval, 1 blue saucer, 1 gold oval, 1 blue saucer, 1 gold oval, 1 blue saucer, 1 gold oval, 1 blue saucer, 1 gold oval, 1 blue saucer, and 1 gold oval. Then 5 green cubes, 1 gold oval, 1 blue oval, 1 gold oval, 1 blue oval, 1 gold oval, 1 blue oval, 1 gold oval, 1 blue oval, 1 gold oval, 1 blue oval, and 1 gold oval.
  3. String on one crimp tube and thread the wire up and over a wire protector. Add one jump ring before threading the wire back through the crimp tube. Pull until snug and crimp the crimp tube. Trim any excess wire. Add a crimp cover.
  4. Move to the other side of the bracelet and repeat the above step, adding a lobster clasp instead of the jump ring.
  5. Finally, please watch our video: How to Add a Chain Extender onto Strung Jewelry. You will use another jump ring to attach a two inch chain extender to complete the look.
