PROJECT N7019
Designer: Rachel Zaimont
Skill Level: Beginner
Sparkle alluringly in this understated Christmas necklace featuring faceted carnelian and amazonite gemstone beads.
Instructions
These instructions will make a 19 inch necklace. For a longer or shorter necklace, adjust the length of beading wire and the number of carnelian beads.
  1. Using your flush cutters, cut a 24 inch length of Beadalon beading wire.
  2. String one crimp tube, followed by the loop of your gold lobster clasp. Take your wire back through the crimp tube and pull snug. Crimp the crimp tube using your crimping pliers. Snip off the excess wire with flush cutters.
  3. Add a crimp cover over your crimp tube.
  4. Begin stringing your beads in the following order: 20 carnelian beads, 1 gold filigree bead, 7 carnelian beads. Then string 1 gold filigree bead and 1 amazonite bead, and repeat that pattern four times. Then string 1 gold filigree bead, 7 carnelian beads, 1 gold filigree bead and 20 carnelian beads.
  5. Once all of your beads are on, string another crimp tube, followed by one jump ring. Take your wire back through the crimp tube and pull snug. Crimp the crimp tube using your crimping pliers. Snip off the excess wire with flush cutters.
  6. Add a crimp cover over your crimp tube.
  7. Enjoy your necklace!
