Retired - Candy Heart Necklace

PROJECT N145
Designer: Andrea Morici
Skill Level: Beginner
Who doesn't love purple? Pay tribute to your love of that luscious color by making this cute necklace that features a large blown glass puff bead and some yummy purple jade rounds.
Instructions
  1. Cut approximately two feet of Soft Flex. Secure one end of it, about two inches away from the tip, using a Bead Stopper.
  2. Onto your wire, thread a daisy spacer, a druk, a daisy spacer, a druk, and another daisy spacer.
  3. For the next six inches, thread alternating 8mm jade beads and druks, with a daisy spacer between each. (six inches equals twelve 8mm jade beads, twelve druks, and twenty-four daisy spacers.)
  4. After you have strung six inches ending in a daisy spacer, string an 8mm silver heart bead (top side first):
  5. a daisy spacer
  6. a druk
  7. a spacer
  8. a jade
  9. a spacer
  10. a druk
  11. a spacer
  12. a jade
  13. a spacer
  14. a druk
  15. a spacer.
  16. String a closed jump ring.
  17. From this point on, string the other half of your necklace as a mirror image of the first half, beginning with the spacer. There should only be one closed jump ring in the very center of the necklace.
  18. When you reach the end, string a crimp tube onto your wire, but do not crimp it yet.
  19. Thread the end of your wire through a closed jump ring and back through the crimp tube. Pull snug, and crimp the crimp tube.
  20. Remove the Bead Stopper from the other end and repeat the last two instructions on this end of the necklace.
  21. Using an open jump ring, attach the two halves of your toggle clasp, one to each closed jump ring.
  22. Onto a headpin, thread a daisy spacer, the blown glass heart (end first), a druk, a spacer, a jade, a spacer, and another druk. Create a wrapped loop at the end of the headpin and trim off excess wire.
  23. Onto an eyepin, thread an 8mm silver heart bead. Create a simple loop and trim off excess wire.
  24. Gently open the loops at both ends of the eyepin, the way you would open a jump ring. Thread the top loop through the closed jump ring in the middle of the necklace. Thread the bottom loop through the wrapped loop at the top of your pendant.
  25. Close both loops once more.
