Retired - Guardian of the Woods Necklace

PROJECT N1023
Designer: Megan Milliken
Skill Level: Intermediate
A wise old owl watches over you in this necklace, with braided Czech tri-cut seed bead strands.
Instructions
  1. Place a small amount of E6000 glue onto the back of a lucite owl face cameo and press it firmly into an antique brass oval bezel pendant. Allow glue to dry for at least an hour before moving on.
  2. Cut two 2' lengths of Soft Flex Beading Wire.
  3. Use an antique brass micro crimp tube to attach one length of wire to one of the end jump rings on an 18" antique brass chain necklace, where the clasp is connected. Repeat with the second wire.
  4. String about 18" of brown iris 10/0 Czech tri-cut seed beads onto one of the wires. Place a bead stopper at the end to hold the beads in place.
  5. String about 18" of green iris tri-cut seed beads onto one of the wires. Place a bead stopper at the end to hold the beads in place.
  6. With the necklace unclasped, loosely braid the two wires and the necklace chain together.
  7. Then, use a micro crimp to attach each loose end to the jump ring connecting the clasp at this end of the chain.
  8. Use a 5mm, 20 gauge antique brass jump ring to hang your pendant from the middle of the chain.
