Circulo Necklace

PROJECT N820
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Intermediate
This pretty necklace features a turquoise, blue, and purple beaded bead featuring CzechMates 2-hole diamond beads that have been woven together to form a circle shape. The pendant is then suspended from delicate sterling silver chain and finished with sterling silver findings.
Instructions
  1. To make this project, please begin by watching the video: How to Make a Beaded Bead with CzechMates Diamond Beads. In the course of this video you will learn how much thread to put on your needle, how many beads to pick up and of which color, how to bead weave the beads together to form a bead, and how to tie off your beading.
  2. Once your bead is complete, set it aside and start to make your necklace. Cut the length of chain you want, the clasp will add under 1/2 an inch.
  3. Onto one end of chain, crimp a crimp bead with loop. Feed the other end of the chain through your beaded bead, going from one side to the next, not front to back. Pull the chain through and then add a crimp bead with loop to the other end.
  4. Open a jump ring and link it to one of the end loops. Close the jump ring. Open the jump ring attached to the lobster clasp and link this to the other side of your necklace. Close the jump ring.
  5. All done. Enjoy!
