Retired - Floraline Necklace, Earring and Bracelet Set in Nightshade

PROJECT S8004
Designer: Alexandra Smith
Skill Level: Intermediate
This delicate bead woven necklace, earring, and bracelet set offers a bouquet of blue petals stitched into a floral pattern around lustrous grey Swarovski crystal pearls.
Instructions
This necklace measures 18" total. To modify the size, adjust the amount of chain cut on each side respectively. The bracelet measures 7" total. To modify the size of the bracelet, add or subtract the number of units woven. By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Please watch the video: How to Make the Floraline Necklace, Earring, and Bracelet Set.
  2. To make the bracelet and earrings, follow along with the instructions in the video.
  3. To make the necklace, you will create a slightly larger flower in the same manner as shown in the video. Begin by cutting 2 feet of Fireline thread and string on your needle. Then string on twelve 8/0 seed beads alternating with twelve MiniDuos and tie a double overhand knot.
  4. String on one 8mm pearl and sew it into the center of the flower the same way as shown in the video for the bracelet and earrings. String your needle through the second hole of one MiniDuo and weave the second layer of seed beads between each MiniDuo, again the same way as shown in the video.
  5. Next, create the outer beaded fringe of the flower by stringing three 11/0 seed beads in the same fashion as shown in the video.
  6. Once you have completed the fringe portion of the weave, make your beaded chain attachment as follows: string on two 11/0 seed beads and one 8/0 seed bead. Double back through one 11/0 seed bead so that your thread traps the 8/0 seed bead. Then string on one more 11/0 seed bead, and thread your needle back through the next section of 11/0 seed beads along the fringe of your flower. Pull your thread tight so that the 8/0 bead sits straight off the top of the flower (see photo for reference). Tie off, weave in, and clip your thread.
  7. Now cut two 8.5 inch lengths of chain. Open a 4mm jump ring, slide on the end links of both chains, and also slide on the protruding 8/0 seed bead you just wove onto your flower. Close the jump ring.
  8. To attach your clasp, open a jump ring. Slide it through the last link on one side of the chain, and also slide on the loop of your clasp. Close the jump ring.
  9. Open another jump ring. Slide on the last link of chain on the other side of the necklace. Close the jump ring. Enjoy your bracelet, necklace, and earring set!
