Retired - Midnight Glam Necklace

PROJECT N3102
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Beginner
Sparkling with sumptuous dark crystal, the Midnight Glam Necklace will add glam rock style to any little black dress.
Instructions
This necklace measures 18" long. For a necklace that is longer or shorter, simply adjust the beaded wire length.
  1. Before you begin, please watch the video on How to Use Swarovski Crystal Fancy Stone Settings.
  2. Following what you learned in the video, place your 30x20 Swarovski crystal pear fancy stone into its fancy stone setting. Set aside.
  3. Using your flush cutters, cut a length of beading wire that is 24 inches long. I have already included 3" on either side to allow for crimping.
  4. Onto your wire, string on a crimp tube followed by the loop on one half of your metallic clap. Take the wire back through the crimp tube. Pull snug and crimp using your crimping pliers. Snip off any excess wire using your flush cutters.
  5. Onto your wire, string on the following: two O-beads and one bicone. Repeat this pattern 24 times followed by 2 more O-beads.
  6. Next, string on one 12x6 Jet Swarovksi double spike followed by two O-rings. Repeat this pattern 7 more times, followed by one 12x6 Crystal Silver Night double spike, one 12x6 Jet double spike, and two 16X8 Crystal Night Shade double spikes. String on your Swarovski pear fancy stone with setting, making sure to string your wire through the top two holes in the setting. See photo for assistance.
  7. Repeat the same pattern of beads onto the second half of your necklace the same way you did the first. Remember to use a bead stopper at any point to keep your beads from falling off.
  8. Once all your beads are one, slide on another crimp tube and take the wire through the loop on the second half of your magnetic clasp. Bring the wire back through the crimp tube and pull snug. Crimp your crimp tube. Snip off any excess wire using your flush cutters.
  9. Close the clasp and you're done!
