Amethyst Chips Necklace

PROJECT N2224
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
The rich, smooth amethyst gemstone chips provide a luxurious purple hue and play beautifully with the antiqued silver findings and beads in this strung necklace.
Instructions
This necklace measures approximately 20 inches. To modify the length, simply adjust the number of beads strung respectively.
  1. Begin by cutting off 28 inches of beading wire. Place a bead stopper about 2 inches from one end.
  2. String on the beads in the following order: one silver rectangle bead, one 6mm white jade bead. Repeat 8 times. Then string one silver rectangle bead, one puff coin, and one silver rectangle bead. Then string on three amethyst chips and one silver rectangle bead. Repeat 12 times. Then string on one puff coin and one silver rectangle bead. String on one 6mm white jade bead and one silver rectangle bead. Repeat 8 times.
  3. String on one magical crimp in silver. Thread the wire up through one wire protector and over. Before stringing the wire back through the crimp tube, string onto the bar end of the toggle clasp to the wire protector. Once the wire is back through the crimp tube. Pull snug and using the magical crimping pliers crimp the crimp tube. Trim any excess wire.
  4. Remove the bead stopper and repeat the above process on the other side. Note that for the square end of the toggle you may need widen the opening of the wire protector a bit to accommodate the clasp. You can do this by prying it open with tip of your chain nose pliers.
