Retired - Coastal Wedding Necklace

PROJECT N2268
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
Swarovski crystal pearls in soft dove grey and sea glass round beads in rich royal blue make the perfect pair in this summer wedding necklace design.
Instructions
This necklace measures 21 inches. For a longer or shorter necklace simply adjust the number of beads strung or the length of chain on both sides respectively.
  1. Begin by cutting the chain into two equal lengths of six inches each.
  2. Cut off 16 inches of wire. Place a bead stopper about two inches from one end. String on one sea glass bead and alternate with one Swarovski pearl. Repeat 11 times and end with one more sea glass bead.
  3. String on one crimp tube. Thread the wire up and over one thread protector and before threading it back down through the crimp tube, slide on one end of the chain. After threading the wire through the crimp tube, crimp it and add a crimp cover.
  4. Move to the other side of this strand, remove the bead stopper and repeat the above step.
  5. Finally, open one jump ring and attach it to one end of the chain. Close the jump ring. Move to the other side of this necklace and attach one jump ring to the final link and attach one lobster clasp before closing the jump ring.
