Noodle Bead Necklace in Turquoise

PROJECT N1047
Designer: Megan Milliken
Skill Level: Beginner
This necklace is the perfect compliment to a matching bracelet, and is quick and easy to make. Turquoise waxed cotton cord with gold plated noodle beads and findings make it a colorful addition to your wardrobe.
Instructions
This short necklace measures about 16" long. To add or subtract from the finished length, simply adjust the length of your waxed cotton cord pieces.
  1. Cut five 15.5" pieces of turquoise waxed cotton cord. I used a pair of flush cutters to get a nice clean cut.
  2. Group your cords together with the ends even and apply some E6000 glue to the ends, then fit them into a gold plated cord end for 4mm cord. Push them all the way in and then clean off any excess glue. Allow the glue to dry before continuing.
  3. Slide a 3 x 100mm gold plated curved noodle bead onto each cord.
  4. Attach the loose ends into a second cord end in the same manner as you did the first. Allow the glue to dry before continuing.
  5. Use a 4mm, 22 gauge gold plated jump ring to attach each cord end to one side of a gold plated magnetic clasp.
  6. Allow all glue to dry thoroughly before wearing.
