PROJECT N8071
Designer: Alexandra Smith
Skill Level: Beginner

Simplicity meets sparkle in this necklace featuring a wood and resin focal by Zola Elements. An Austrian crystal bicone adds contrast, linking the pendant onto neutral leather cord.

Instructions
Note: Components and tools listed within this INSTRUCTIONS box and the printer-friendly PDF may have been discontinued since this project was published. Refer to the PURCHASE COMPONENTS and TOOLS AND OTHER SUPPLIES sections for up-to-date information.
These instructions will make a 16 inch necklace. To adjust the size, choose your desired length of leather cord.
  1. Begin by using flush cutters to cut 3 inches of 22 gauge wire.
  2. Make a wrapped wire loop on one end of the wire, sliding on the hole of your wood and resin focal before closing the wrap.
  3. Onto the wire, slide one 6mm fuchsia bicone bead. On the other side of the bead, make another wrapped wire loop.
  4. Now use flush cutters to cut 15.5 inches of 1.5mm leather cord, and string on the wrapped wire loop you made in the previous step.
  5. Slide a crimp cord end onto one side of your leather cord. Use chain nose pliers to crimp the cord end. Repeat this step to attach the other side of your crimp cord end clasp.
  6. Enjoy your necklace!
