Retired - Kariba Necklace

PROJECT N2124
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Beginner
A coppery faceted necklace makes for a stunning, yet easy statement piece. The Czech Glass Hill Beads add character and style to this design.
Instructions
This necklace measures 19 inches. To modify the length, simply adjust the number of beads strung respectively. Note: You may need to purchase additional beads.
  1. Cut 24 inches of bead wire. String on one crimp tube about 2 inches from one end. String the wire through the loop on the bar side of the toggle clasp and back down though the crimp tube. Pull snugly and crimp the crimp tube. Trim any excess wire. Cover the crimp bead with a crimp cover.
  2. Next, string on the beads in this order: one 6mm gossamer hill bead (rounded side first), one copper bead, one 6mm gossamer hill bead (flat side first), one copper bead, one 6mm iris purple hill bead (rounded side first), one copper bead, one 6mm iris purple hill bead (flat side first), and one copper bead. Repeat this pattern four times, then finish with one 6mm gossamer hill bead (rounded side first), one copper bead, one 6mm gossamer hill bead (flat side first), and one copper bead.
  3. Then string: one 8mm iris purple hill bead (rounded side first), one copper bead, one 8mm iris purple hill bead (flat side first), one copper bead, one 8mm gossamer hill bead (rounded side first), one copper bead, one 8mm gossamer hill bead (flat side first), and one copper bead. Repeat this pattern four times, then finish with one 8mm iris purple hill bead (rounded side first), one copper bead, one 8mm iris purple hill bead (flat side first), and one copper bead.
  4. Finally string: one 6mm gossamer hill bead (rounded side first), one copper bead, one 6mm gossamer hill bead (flat side first), one copper bead, one 6mm iris purple hill bead (rounded side first), one copper bead, one 6mm iris purple hill bead (flat side first), and one copper bead. Repeat this pattern four times, then finish with one 6mm gossamer hill bead (rounded side first), one copper bead, and one 6mm gossamer hill bead (flat side first).
  5. String on one crimp tube. String the wire through the loop on the other piece of the toggle clasp and back down though the crimp tube. Pull snugly and crimp the crimp tube. Trim any excess wire. Cover the crimp bead with a crimp cover.
