Summer Citrus Necklace

PROJECT N787
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Intermediate
Lemon and lime colors pair nicely in this long casual necklace. The green sea glass beads have been wire wrapped with a subtle spiral design and the Swarovski crystal yellow opal round beads add just the right amount of sparkle.
Instructions
You will also need a ruler for this project. The finished necklace will measure around 34 inches long.
  1. Please begin by watching the video: How to Create an Easy Wire Spiral around a Bead. In the video you will learn how to wire wrap your sea glass beads. Please make a total of 7 of these beads.
  2. Next, cut a 2 inch length of beading wire. Create a wrapped wire loop on one end, place a yellow Swarovski round bead on the wire, create a wrapped wire loop on the other end and then trim off excess wire. The first part of the video you watched earlier will show you how to make the stand alone wrapped wire loop on your cut length of wire. Make a total of 6 of these.
  3. Using jump rings to connect your beads, link them together in the following order: 3 yellow beads, 7 sea glass, 3 yellow.
  4. Connect the end link of your chain to the end yellow bead (with a jump ring). Repeat on the other side of the necklace.
  5. All done, enjoy!
