Retired - Coconut Shell Unisex Necklace

PROJECT N1029
Designer: Megan Milliken
Skill Level: Intermediate
A strand of coconut shell wooden beads is reminiscent of beachside puka shells, and can be worn by women or men.
Instructions
These instructions are for a 16" necklace. If you're making this for a man, you should measure his neck and add a couple of inches. You'll probably need to make it 18" or 20".
  1. Cut a 20" length of .015 bronze color beading wire. Place an antique brass micro crimp about 2" from the end. Pull the wire through one side of an antique brass magnetic clasp and back through the crimp tube. Crimp.
  2. String ten pale tan coconut shell rondelle beads onto your wire. Then string one dark brown coconut shell rondelle bead, followed by ten more pale tan beads. Repeat this pattern until you have eleven sets of pale tan beads with a dark brown bead between each set.
  3. String a crimp tube, then go through the free loop on your magnetic clasp. Pull the wire back through the crimp tube and crimp.
  4. Trim the excess wire ends close to the crimp tubes.
