Daytime Pearl Necklace

PROJECT N2236
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Beginner
This lovely cultured pearl necklace features a mix colorful pearls and Swarovski Crystal Rondelles. Perfect for an elegant day affair.
Instructions
This necklace measures approximately 16 inches. To modify the length, simply adjust the number of beads strung respectively.
  1. Begin by cutting a length of beading wire that is 20 inches in length. Place a bead stopper about two inches from one end.
  2. Then string the beads on in the following order: 1 white pearl, 1 gold bead, and 1 colorful pearl.
  3. Next string: 1 gold bead, 1 white pearl, 1 crystal, 1 white pearl, 1 gold bead, and 1 colorful pearl. Repeat this step's pattern until you have added 12 units with crystals.
  4. After your last crystal add: 1 white pearl, 1 gold bead, 1 colorful pearl, 1 gold bead, and 1 white pearl.
  5. String on one crimp tube. String one closed jump ring. Thread the beading wire back through the crimp tube and pull snug. Crimp the crimp tube. Trim any excess wire. Add a crimp cover.
  6. Move to the beginning side of the necklace and remove the bead stopper. Repeat the above step on this side of the necklace, attaching the loop of the lobster clasp on this side in place of the closed jump ring.
