Retired - Gallery Necklace

PROJECT N709
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Beginner
This necklace has a rich elegant look but is actually very easy to make!
Instructions
This pattern results in a 15" necklace. To make it longer, simply add more 6mm round beads near the clasp (5 round beads equals approximately 1").
  1. Begin by cutting a 26" length of gold colored beading wire. Place a bead stopper 4 inches from the tail.
  2. String onto your wire: 1 crimp bead, 6 SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS 6mm round beads in emerald, 1 SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS 3mm bicone in emerald.
  3. Next, string 1 square bead frame with a 6mm SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS emerald cube bead inside, 1 SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS 3mm bicone in emerald, and 1 round bead frame with an 8mm SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS emerald round bead inside. Repeat this same sequence another 9 times. To see how to use bead frames, view the video here.
  4. String another bicone, another square bead frame with a 6mm SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS emerald cube bead inside, another bicone, 6 SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS 6mm round beads in emerald, and another crimp bead.
  5. Take your beading wire end thread it through the loop at the base of your toggle bar. Loop the wire back around and down through your crimp bead and several of the beads next to it. Pull snug and crimp the crimp bead. Snip off excess wire with flush cutters.
  6. Remove the bead stopper on the other end of your necklace and perform the previous step on this end with the ring part of your toggle clasp.
  7. Place a crimp bead cover over both crimp beads.
  8. Enjoy your pretty new necklace!
