Skill Level: Intermediate

There is no lack of sparkle here! This keyhole necklace features a colorful splash of Preciosa crystal round beads. Play with the patterns and colors to make this your own.

Instructions
This necklace measures 21.5" inches, to modify the length, simply adjust the number of beads strung.
  1. Begin by cutting off 30 inches of beading wire. Then watch our video: How to Make a Beaded Loop Pendant in your Strung Jewelry. Based on what you learned in this video, make the center pendant.
  2. Then string the beads equally on both strands in the following order: 6mm aqua, 8mm light rose, 6mm crystal ab matte, 4mm light amethyst, 6mm light rose, 4mm light amethyst, 6mm crystal ab, 8mm light amethyst, 6mm crystal ab matte, 10mm aqua, 6mm light rose, 4mm light amethyst, 6mm crystal ab, 4mm light rose, 6mm aqua, 8mm light amethyst, 4mm light rose, 6mm crystal ab matte, 4mm light amethyst, 6mm crystal ab, 10mm aqua, 6mm light rose, 4mm light amethyst, 6mm aqua, 4mm light rose, 6mm crystal ab matte, 8mm light rose, 4mm light amethyst, 6mm crystal ab, 4mm light rose, 6mm aqua, 4mm light amethyst, and 6mm light rose.
  3. String on one crimp tube. Then thread the wire up and over the thread protector. Before string the wire back through the crimp tube, string on one closed jump ring. Crimp the crimp tube. Then add a crimp cover and trim the wire.
  4. Move to the other side of the necklace and repeat the above step.
  5. Finally open one jump ring and attach it to the closed jump ring you just added and to one lobster clasp. Close the jump ring and you are all done!
