Retired - Coastal Sea Necklace

PROJECT N2035
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Beginner
The Vintaj natural brass pairs wonderfully with the Toho hybrid Picasso seed beads to create this light beachy necklace.
Instructions
These instructions will give you a necklace that is about 17 inches long.
  1. Begin by cutting 20" of beading wire. Place your bead stopper about 2 inches from the end.
  2. Onto the beading wire you will thread 1 Toho hybrid opaque gray picasso 6/0 bead; 20 Toho hybrid turquoise picasso 11/0 beads. Repeat this pattern 12 more times. Finish with one 6/0 bead.
  3. Now thread on 1 crimp bead. Thread the wire through one 9mm jump ring (make sure the jump ring is closed) and thread it back down through the crimp bead. Pull snug. Crimp the crimp bead. Remove the bead stopper from the other side and repeat this process.
  4. Lay this beaded piece out in front of you. Counting the 6/0 beads from the left; count 5 in to the center. On the right side of that bead, you are going to open one 5.25mm jump ring, attach one sand dollar charm and close it around the beaded strand. The 5th and 6th 6/0 toho beads will hold it in place, but the jump ring will float freely between these two 6/0 seed beads. Repeat this with the second sand dollar but counting the 6/0 beads from the left; count 9. This second jump ring with the second sand dollar will be between the 9th and 10th 6/0 Toho. Set aside this beaded piece.
  5. Take the strand of ribbon and thread onto the end 1 Toho 6/0 bead. Slide it down to the other end about 4 inches from the other end. It should be sung and hold in place. Repeat this six more times. Each time the bead should be about two inches away from the previous one. Set aside.
  6. Cut a piece of chain 16 inches in length. Find the center of this chain. Open one 5.25mm jump ring and attach the turtle pendant to the center link of the chain. Close the jump ring.
  7. Onto one end of the chain open a 5.25mm jump ring and attach this jump ring to one side of the 9mm jump ring attached to the strung beads. Close the jump ring.
  8. To tie on the ribbon, begin with the side that has the first Toho bead that you threaded on it, tie an overhand double knot to the 9mm jump ring.
  9. Now that all three strands (the beaded strand, the chain and the ribbon) are attached to the 9mm jump ring, you will form a very loose braid to intertwine these three strands.
  10. Holding the ends of these braided strand stable (after you have braided them), you will attach them to the 9mm jump ring on the beaded strand. For the chain, open one 5.25mm jump ring and close it around the 9mm jump ring. For the ribbon, tie an overhand double knot to the 9mm jump ring.
  11. For the clasp, open the loop on the hook, just as you would a jump ring and attach it to one 9mm jump ring. Close the loop on the hook.
  12. To the other side, open the loop of the eye clasp, same as you would a jump ring, and close it around the 9mm jump ring. Close the loop of the eye.
