Fairy Circle Necklace

PROJECT N8030
Designer: Alexandra Smith
Skill Level: Intermediate
This ethereal hoop pendant is strung with wing-like etched dagger beads and mossy Miyuki 11/0 seed beads. An intricate fairy charm floats in the center from a misty Swarovski pearl accent. The necklace is easily completed using a finished cable chain.
Instructions
These instructions will make an 18 inch necklace. For a longer or shorter necklace, choose your desired length of finished chain.
  1. Open your beading hoop and slide on 29 seed beads.
  2. Next, slide on 1 dagger bead and 2 seed beads. Repeat this pattern 5 more times, then add one more dagger bead for a total of 7 dagger beads. Note: make sure the dagger beads are facing the same direction, as indicated by the etched design (see photo for reference).
  3. Slide on another 29 seed beads and secure the beading hoop in place as shown in this video.
  4. Use flush cutters to cut 3 inches of 26 gauge wire. Create a wrapped wire loop on one end, latching on the top loop of your fairy charm.
  5. Onto your wire, slide one pearl. Make another wrapped wire loop above the pearl and latch your wrap onto the opening at the top of your hoop finding where the two ends of the hoop meet (see photo for reference).
  6. Open a 4mm jump ring, and slide on the top loop of your hoop. Close the jump ring.
  7. Take your finished chain and use flush cutters to cut the center link of the chain. Open another jump ring and slide on the two end links of your chain. Also slide on the jump ring at the top of your hoop. Close the jump ring. Enjoy your necklace!
