PROJECT N684
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Beginner
Boldly colored magnesite gemstone beads have been arranged in thick panels along the length of this long necklace that also doubles as a wrapped bracelet. A fun accessory to pair with jeans or a printed dress.
Instructions
Great beginner project!
  1. This necklace is very quick and easy to make.
  2. Start by cutting 50" of silver colored beading wire and placing a bead stopper on one end, 4 inches from the tail.
  3. String onto your wire: 1 gun metal plated crimp bead and 1 Miyuki Delica size 10/0 bead in opaque cream.
  4. Next string the following beads, making sure to add 1 Miyuki Delica size 10/0 bead in opaque cream between each of the beads: 10 turquoise magnesite rondelle beads, 10 green magnesite oval beads, 10 dark blue lapis magnesite bone shaped beads, 10 turquoise magnesite rondelle beads, 10 red magnesite coin shaped beads, 10 turquoise magnesite rondelle beads, 10 green magnesite oval beads, 10 dark blue lapis magnesite bone shaped beads, 10 turquoise magnesite rondelle beads, 10 red magnesite coin shaped beads, 10 turquoise magnesite rondelle beads, 10 green magnesite oval beads, and 10 dark blue lapis magnesite bone shaped beads.
  5. Take the bead stopper off of your strand and thread the end of the beading wire (the end that you were just stringing on) through the crimp bead in the opposite direction from the other end of the strand so that they criss-cross in the middle. Now take both tails and thread them through several beads adjacent to the crimp bead on both sides of the necklace. Pull snug and crimp your crimp bead. Snip off excess wire with flush cutters.
