Galaxy Choker

PROJECT N2153
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Beginner
Get galactic with this druzy and lava beads choker necklace. The perfect funky, sparkly style for a night out on the town.
Instructions
These instructions will give you a necklace that is about 15.5 inches. To adjust the length simply subtract beads or add additional gold and lava alternate beads to each side respectively.
  1. Begin by cutting off 20 inches of beading wire. Place a bead stopper about 3 inches from one end.
  2. String on the beads in the following order: 1 lava, 1 gold, 1 lava, 1 gold, 1 lava, and 1 gold. Then 1 druzy, 1 gold, 1 lava, and 1 gold; repeat this 14 times. Then string 1 lava, 1 gold, and 1 lava.
  3. 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. Thread the wire back through a few adjacent beads. Trim any excess wire. Add a crimp cover.
  4. Move to the beginning side of the necklace and remove the bead stopper. Repeat the above step on this side of the necklace.
  5. Open one jump ring and attach it to one closed jump ring and to one lobster clasp. Close the jump ring.
  6. Move to the other side of the necklace and attach one open jump ring to the closed jump ring and you're all done.
