Retired - Midnight Gala Necklace

PROJECT N734
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Intermediate
No one will ever guess that you actually MADE this necklace. The design features a beautiful focal piece filled with sparkling SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS crystal chatons which is then accented by over 100 radiant bicone beads.
Instructions
  1. Begin this project by watching the video: How to Use KatieDids Channel-Set Components with Crystal Clay.
  2. Based upon what you learned in the video, create your focal piece using your Katiedids component, black Crystal Clay, 24 inches of beading wire, 14 size pp32 chatons in black diamond, and 14 size pp24 chatons jet hematite. Also, take a small ball of mixed black Crystal Clay, smaller then the size of an eraser, and place it on the top of your clasp, in the center. Take 1 size pp32 chaton in black diamond and press this down into your clay ball on the clasp. Let your focal and clasp dry overnight.
  3. String onto one side of your necklace one 3mm silver plated round bead and one 6mm Czech Glass bicone in jet hematite. Repeat this sequence 4 more times.
  4. Next, string one 3mm silver plated round bead and one 4mm Czech Glass bicone in jet hematite. Repeat this sequence 6 more times.
  5. Next, string 30 4mm Czech Glass bicones in jet hematite and one crimp tube. Take your beading wire and string it through the loop on one side of your clasp. Bring the beading wire back around and down through your crimp tube and several beads next to it. Pull snug and crimp your crimp tube. Cut off excess beading wire with flush cutters.
  6. Repeat the last 3 steps on the other side of your necklace.
  7. Enjoy!
