Harbour Island Necklace

PROJECT N2199
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
Get swept away to the pink sandy beaches of the Bahamas with this sea glass, wood and gemstone beads design.
Instructions
This necklace extends from 25 inches to 27 inches when including the chain extender. To modify the length, simply adjust the length of chain on both sides respectively.
  1. Begin by cutting the sequin chain into two lengths, 6 inches each. Set these aside.
  2. Cut a length of beading wire that is 16 inches. Place a bead stopper about 2 inches from one end.
  3. Next, string on the beads in the following order: one gold nugget, one sea glass spacer, repeat 6 more times and end with one more gold nugget. Then string seven howlite beads, one gold nugget, eleven pink wood beads, one gold nugget, seven howlite beads, one gold nugget, one sea glass spacer. Then repeat the gold nugget and sea glass segment 6 more times and end with one more gold nugget.
  4. String on one crimp tube. Thread the wire up and over the wire protector and back down. Before stringing it back through the crimp tube, you will slip one end of the sequin chain onto the wire protector. Slip it through one hole of one sequin. Now thread the wire through the crimp tube. Pull snug and crimp the crimp tube. Thread the wire back through a few adjacent beads. Trim any excess wire. Add a crimp cover.
  5. Move to the beginning side of the necklace and remove the bead stopper. Repeat the above step on this side of the necklace.
  6. Open one jump ring and to one end of the sequin chain, attach one lobster clasp. Close the jump ring.
  7. Move to the other side of the necklace and open another jump ring. Attach it to the end of the sequin chain, and to one chain extender. Close the jump ring.
