Retired - Belle De Mer Necklace Set

PROJECT N3012
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Beginner
This lovely necklace set incorporates Czech fire polish glass beads in shiny hematite and pale green luster. Combined, they look elegant and timeless. And the best part is you can wear the necklaces as a set or on their own.
Instructions
These instructions will make two finished necklaces, one longer necklace that is approximately 33" long and one shorter necklace that is approximately 20� long. Be sure to include an additional 12� of wire (3� on both sides of each necklace) to allow for crimping.
  1. You will begin by making the longer necklace. Cut 39� of wire with your flush cutters.
  2. String on your clasp then loop the wire back through the crimp bead (you want a short tail of about 3 inches of wire). Pull snug so that you have a small loop.
  3. Using your crimp pliers, crimp your crimp bead. Snip off any excess beading wire from the short tail using your flush cutter.
  4. Begin stringing on your pale green luster beads. You will string on 103 beads.
  5. Once you've strung all your beads, take the end of your wire and string it through another crimp bead. Add a jump ring and loop the wire back into the crimp bead. Pull your wire snug so that your beads all line up neatly.
  6. Using your crimp pliers, crimp your crimp bead. Snip off any excess beading wire. Your first necklace is done. Set aside.
  7. For your second necklace, cut 26� of wire with your flush cutters. (This necklace will have some slight variations, but a similar process).
  8. String on your clasp then loop the wire back through the crimp bead (you want a short tail of about 3 inches of wire). Pull snug so that you have a small loop.
  9. Using your crimp pliers, crimp your crimp bead. Snip off any excess wire from the short tail using your flush cutter.
  10. Begin stringing on your beads in this order: 52 Toho seed beads in gold-lined rainbow aqua, 5 pale green luster beads, 10 Czech fire polish glass beads in hematite, 5 pale green luster beads, and 52 Toho seed beads in gold-lined rainbow aqua.
  11. Once you've strung all your beads, take the end of your wire and string it through another crimp bead. Add a jump ring and loop the wire back into the crimp bead.
  12. Using your crimp pliers, crimp your crimp bead. Snip off any excess beading wire.
  13. You are now done with your second necklace.
