Owl Quartet Necklace

PROJECT N8048
Designer: Alexandra Smith
Skill Level: Beginner
A charming array of Raven's Journey Czech glass beads are paired with antiqued copper accents in this adjustable nature-inspired necklace, finished with a lobster clasp and chain extender for adjustable length.
Instructions
This necklace uses a chain extender for adjustable length from 16 inches to 18 inches. For a longer necklace, you may need to purchase more beads.
  1. Begin by using flush cutters to cut 22 inches of stringing wire. Attach a bead stopper onto one end of the wire.
  2. String on the following beads: 1 yellow flower, 2 copper spacers, 1 blue disc, 1 bronze disc, 1 blue disc, 2 copper spacers, 1 blue disc, 1 bronze disc, 1 blue disc, and 2 copper spacers.
  3. Repeat the pattern described in step 2 nine more times, then string on one more yellow flower bead.
  4. Onto your wire, string one crimp tube. Thread the wire through the loop of your clasp and back through the crimp tube. Pull snug and crimp the crimp tube. Clip the excess wire and add a crimp cover.
  5. Remove the bead stopper and repeat the previous step to attach your chain extender, this time threading the wire through the end link of your chain extender.
  6. Onto a headpin, slide one owl bead and one copper spacer. Above the spacer, make a wrapped wire loop, latching the loop onto your necklace between two of the copper spacers located 5.5 inches down from the loop on the clasp of your necklace. Close the wrap.
  7. Repeat the above step three more times for a total of 4 hanging owls, latching each wrapped wire loop onto your necklace between two copper spacers 1.5 inches from your previous owl, heading in the direction of your chain extender (see photo for reference).
  8. Enjoy your necklace!
