PROJECT N2273
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Beginner
Dark chrome and purple luster beads dance around pink bellflower beads and a coin lotus bead for a rich, yet demure strung choker necklace.
Instructions
This design measures up to 16 inches. To modify the length, simply add or subtract the number of beads strung respectively.
  1. Take one head pin and string on one purple rondelle bead. Make a wrapped wire loop. Set aside. Repeat once more with another purple rondelle.
  2. Take one head pin and string on one chrome rondelle and one lotus coin bead. Make a wrapped wire loop. Set aside.
  3. Cut off 20 inches of beading wire and place a bead stopper about two inches from one end.
  4. String on the beads in the following order: 1 chrome, 1 purple, 1 chrome, 1 purple, 1 chrome, 1 bellflower, 1 purple, 1 bellflower, 1 chrome, 1 purple, 1 chrome, 1 bellflower, 1 purple, 1 bellflower, 1 chrome, 1 purple, 1 chrome, 1 bellflower, 1 purple, 1 bellflower, 1 chrome, 1 purple, 1 chrome, 1 bellflower, 1 purple, 1 bellflower. Then 1 chrome, 1 wrapped wire loop with the purple bead on it, and 1 chrome; followed by 1 bellflower, 1 purple, 1 bellflower, 1 chrome, 1 purple, 1 chrome, 1 bellflower, 1 purple, 1 bellflower, and 1 chrome. To the center string on the wrapped wire loop of the lotus bead. From here you will reverse the pattern to mirror the first side.
  5. Next string on one crimp tube and thread the wire up and over the wire protector. Before threading the wire back through the crimp tube, slide on one end of the chain extender so it sits in the wire protector. Thread the wire through the crimp tube and a few adjacent beads. Then crimp the tube with your crimping pliers. Add a crimp cover and trim the excess wire.
  6. Remove the bead stopper and repeat the above step on the other side of the necklace. On this side you will add the chain extender. Then cut off the last link with the drop attached and open one jump ring to attach one lobster clasp.
