Heart Aglow Aromatherapy Necklace

PROJECT N828
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Intermediate
An intricate heart diffuser locket sits in the middle of this romantic necklace design. Holding the heart in place are hundreds of seed beads strung together and hung from pretty cord end findings and a scroll clasp.
Instructions
Note, you will want a ruler for this project as well.
  1. Begin this project by watching the video: Quick Tip: How to Restring a Hank of Seed Beads. Based upon what you learned in the video, restring the beads using Wildfire beading thread and closed jump rings. The closed jump ring can be any finish you want but they need to be 4mm in size. Start with 120 inches of thread and create a total of 5 strands, 18 inches long, anchored between 2 jump rings. Do the first 3 strands just straight across but for strands 4 and 5, weave them in and out of the first 3 strands so you end up with a bit of a messy braid look. Refer to the photo please. Once done, make sure to tie off your thread and snip off any excess.
  2. Find your heart diffuser locket and cut 2 felt pads down in size. You want them to be about 15 or 16mm in size, slightly smaller then a US dime. Squish the pads a little and fit them into the two halves of the heart locket, one on each side. Add a drop of two of your favorite essential oil. Close the locket back up.
  3. Using the large loop at the top of the locket, slide it over your bead strands so it rests in the middle.
  4. Next, watch the video: How to Use Cord Ends and Bead Caps to Finish a Multi-Strand Necklace. Follow what you learned in the video on both sides of your necklace. Once you have attached your ends, use a jump ring to attach one half of the clasp to each side.
SAFETY WARNING: Essential oils for external use only. Other than aromatherapy, dilute with a carrier oil. For topical use, rub a very small diluted amount on the inside of your elbow area to test for any allergic reaction before use. Discontinue use if any allergic reaction occurs. Keep out of the reach of pets. Essential oils can be potentially toxic to pets at certain concentrations. Avoid contact with eyes, keep out of the reach of children. If pregnant, consult with your health care provider before use.
