Retired - Callista Necklace

PROJECT N1022
Designer: Megan Milliken
Skill Level: Advanced
Delicate gold and silver plated beads are woven into beaded beads in this dainty necklace. It calls to mind a celebration, and would be perfect for the holidays, or for any special occasion.
Instructions
  1. Before you begin, watch the video: How to Make a Beaded Bead Using Right Angle Weave Double Needle Method.
  2. Following the instructions in the video, make two beaded beads using 3mm silver plated metal beads and one beaded bead using 3mm 22k gold plated metal beads.
  3. Cut a 16" length of 22k gold plated figaro chain.
  4. Thread the chain through one silver plated bead, the gold plated bead, and then the second silver plated bead. Make sure that the chain goes through the center of the beads, using two of the larger holes across from each other.
  5. Attach a 4mm, 20 gauge gold plated jump ring to one end of your chain.
  6. Use a second jump ring to attach a 10mm gold plated lobster clasp to the other end of your chain.
