Retired - Into the Night Necklace

PROJECT N198
Designer: Andrea Morici
Skill Level: Beginner
The deep, dark brilliance of the new Swarovski color, Crystal Silver Night, makes this necklace perfect for a night out on the town.
Instructions
  1. Begin by using your flush cutters to cut two one foot lengths of Soft Touch beading wire. Secure one end of each with a Bead Stopper.
  2. Onto each strand, thread nine 8/0 silver lined black diamond Czech seed beads, with an 11/0 steel metallic Miyuki Delica between each. Thread another 11/0 Delica at either end of both strands.
  3. Find the center of each strand, and move the beads that you have just strung there.
  4. Remove the Bead Stopper, and thread both strands (making sure the beads are still in the middle of each) through the Swarovski Helios pendant. Gather both ends of one of the strands together and secure them with a bead stopper once again.
  5. Gather both ends of the other strand together, and thread them through one of the holes in the 14mm Swarovski double-holed square bead. Secure the ends with a bead stopper and set it down.
  6. Remove the bead stopper from the other strand, and thread both ends through the other hole in the 14mm Swarovski double-holed square bead.
  7. Onto each strand, thread the following: one inch of alternating 8/0 silver lined black diamond Czech seed beads and 11/0 steel metallic Miyuki Delicas. Now thread BOTH strands though a single Swarovski 6mm rondelle. Repeat this beading sequence two more times.
  8. Gather both strands together and thread them through another single 8/0 seed bead, and another rondelle. Repeat this sequence one more time.
  9. Onto both strands together, string five inches of alternating 6/0 black diamond seed beads and 10/0 steel delicas.
  10. Finally, onto both strands together, thread a crimp bead- but do not crimp it just yet. Thread both strands together through an 8mm closed jump ring, back through the crimp bead, pull snug, and crimp. Trim excess wire off of this side.
  11. Repeat steps 7-10 on the other side of the necklace.
  12. Open a 6mm jump ring and use it to attach the lobster clasp to one end of the necklace. Close the jump ring once more and you're done!
