Retired - Amethyst and Quartz Necklace

PROJECT N3048
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Beginner
Make this elegant necklace by combining faceted Amethyst and Quartz nugget beads strung together with bright gold-plated chain and findings. A pretty crystal pave Beadelle bead also makes an appearance.
Instructions
  1. This necklace measures 21 inches long.
  2. Begin by cutting two lengths of 6� long chain with your flush cutters. Set aside.
  3. Next cut 21� of wire with your flush cutters. (I have already included 3� of wire onto each side, to allow for crimping.)
  4. Open up a gold plated jump ring, slide on the loop from your lobster clasp and also the last link from one side of one length of gold plated chain. Close with your pliers. Set aside.
  5. Next, take your wire length, add on a crimp bead and also the last link from the opposite side of the chain length you just added a clasp to. Bring the wire back through the crimp bead. Pull snug and crimp your crimp bead with your crimping pliers. Snip off any excess wire from the short tail with your flush cutters.
  6. You will now begin adding on your beads. Use your bead stopper at any point so your beads don't fall off. Add on: 29 gold plated metal beads, 1 quartz bead, 1 gold bead, 1 quartz bead, 1 gold bead, 1 amethyst bead, 1 gold bead, 1 amethyst bead, 1 gold bead, 1 amethyst bead, 1 gold bead, 1 amethyst bead, 1 gold bead, 1 amethyst bead, 1 gold bead, 1 amethyst bead, 1 gold bead, 1 beadelle pave bead, 1 gold bead, 1 quartz bead, 1 gold bead, 1 quartz bead, 29 gold beads and 1 crimp bead. Also slide on the last link from one end of your second length of 6� long chain.
  7. Take your wire and string it back through your crimp bead. Pull snug and crimp the crimp bead with your crimping pliers. Snip off any excess wire from the short tail using your flush cutters.
  8. Open up a jump ring with your pliers and slide it onto the last link of the chain and close.
  9. That's it!
