Retired - Coral Bay Necklace

PROJECT N2193
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
A colorful splash of blue and coral Swarovski Crystal Pearls make this a fun summertime design, perfect for a day time picnic.
Instructions
This necklace measures approximately 17.5 inches. To modify the length, simply adjust the length of chain on both sides respectively.
  1. Begin by cutting off a length of beading wire, 24 inches in length. Place a bead stopper at one end.
  2. String on the beads in the following order: one 4mm blue pearl, one bead cone, one 6mm coral pearl, and one bead cap.
  3. Then string on one 8mm blue pearl, one bead cap, one 6mm coral pearl, one bead cap, one 4mm blue pearl, one bead cap, one 6mm coral pearl, and one bead cap. Repeat 13 times.
  4. Next string on one bead cap, one 6mm coral pearl, one bead cone, and one 4mm blue pearl.
  5. String on one crimp bead. Thread the wire up through one wire protector and back down the other side and through the crimp tube. Pull snug and crimp the crimp tube. Trim any excess wire. Open one jump ring and attach it to one lobster clasp and to the wire protector. Close the jump ring.
  6. Move to the other side of the necklace, remove the bead stopper and repeat the above process. This time you will be simply adding one jump ring without adding the lobster clasp.
