Graduated Pearl Necklace in Grey

PROJECT N2048
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Beginner
Show your classic side with these affordable, beautiful pearls. This perfectly sized graduated strand makes it easy to create the look without all the guess work of measuring each pearl.
Instructions
These instructions will give you a finished necklace that is about 22 1/2 inches in length.
  1. Cut off 30 inches of beading wire. Place a bead stopper about 3 inches from one end.
  2. Onto the beading wire string the pearls in this order: 15 - 6mm pearls, 11 - 8mm pearls, 13 graduated pearls in order, 11 - 8mm pearls, and 15 - 6mm pearls.
  3. String on one crimp tube. String the beading wire around one closed jump ring and back down thru the crimp tube. Pull tight. Crimp the crimp tube. Trim the excess wire.
  4. Add a crimp cover to the tube.
  5. Move to the other side of the necklace, remove the bead stopper and repeat the last two instructions.
  6. Open the loop on the back of the spring clasp, same as you would a jump ring, and attach it to one of the closed jump rings. Close the loop.
  7. All done!
