PROJECT N2052
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Beginner
This twisted spike necklace is a little Vamp and a little Glam!
Instructions
These instructions will give you a necklace that is 18 inches. Before you begin, make a small bead mix of both colors of Toho Seed beads. Set them aside.
  1. Begin by cutting 22 inches of beading wire.
  2. Place a bead stopper about 2 inches from one end of the wire.
  3. String on to the wire in this order:
  4. 15 gold beads, 10 seed beads, 1 gold bead, 10 seed beads, 1 gold bead, 10 seed beads, 1 gold bead.
  5. 1 twist bead, 1 gold bead, 10 seed beads, 1 gold bead, 1 twist bead, 1 gold bead, 10 seed beads, 1 gold bead, 1 twist bead, 1 gold bead.
  6. 5 seed beads, 1 gold bead, 1 twist bead, 1 gold bead, 5 seed beads, 1 gold bead, 1 twist bead, 1 gold bead, 5 seed beads, 1 gold bead, 1 twist bead, 1 gold bead.
  7. 3 seed beads, 1 gold bead, 1 twist bead, 1 gold bead, 3 seed beads, 1 gold bead, 1 twist bead, 1 gold bead, 3 seed beads, 1 gold bead, 1 twist bead.
  8. The last twist bead that you strung is the midpoint of the necklace. You will now repeat the stringing pattern in reverse order for the other half of the necklace.
  9. When you have finished stringing your beads, string on one crimp tube. Thread the wire through a closed jump ring and back down though the crimp tube. Pull snug, and crimp the crimp tube. Trim the excess wire. Add a crimp cover over the crimp tube.
  10. Move to the other side of the necklace and remove the bead stopper. Repeat the above instruction to add a crimp bead to this end of the necklace. Make sure that your tension is tight so the beads are snug.
  11. Open one jump ring and add it to the closed jump ring. Close the jump ring.
  12. To the other side, open one jump ring and add it to the closed jump ring. Before closing this jump ring, add one lobster clasp. Now close the jump ring.
  13. All done!
