Retired - Moroccan Bazaar Necklace and Earring Set

PROJECT S605
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Beginner
Imagine yourself strolling amongst the vendors at a Moroccan Bazaar. Smell the rich spices, view the intricately woven textiles, and feel the sun bathing your skin. Can you see it? I feel like I can while wearing
Instructions
Necklace (or wrapped bracelet if you prefer)
  1. Begin by cutting a 34" length of black beading wire. Place a bead stopper on one end, approximately 4 inches from the tail. String onto your beading wire 1 brass crimp bead.
  2. Next, string 1 Czech seed bead 8/0 true red, 1 brass bead cap, 1 Czech fire polished glass 8mm round bead red coral, another bead cap, another true red seed bead, 1 antique brass sleek noodle tube bead, another true red seed bead, 1 antique brass diamond cut-out 6mm round bead, another true red seed bead, and finally another antique brass sleek noodle tube bead. Repeat this same sequence another 9 times.
  3. String onto your beading wire 1 Czech seed bead 8/0 true red, 1 brass bead cap, 1 Czech fire polished glass 8mm round bead red coral, another bead cap, another true red seed bead, and a brass crimp bead.
  4. At this point, if you are wanting to wear this as both a necklace and bracelet, then place a bead stopper on the end you just finished stringing and wrap the beads around your wrist. Do you like how it looks? If it doesn't feel right, either remove a couple beads so that it fits snugger or add another couple beads to complete another full wrap.
  5. String on one half of your brass magnetic clasp via the loop at the base. Pull your beading wire through the loop and back around and back down through the crimp bead and several beads adjacent to it. Pull snug and crimp the bead.
  6. Go back to the other side of your necklace and remove the bead stopper. String on the other half your clasp. Pull the beading wire back through the crimp bead and several beads adjacent to it. Pull snug and crimp the bead.
  7. Take a brass crimp bead cover and fit it on top of the crimp bead you just crimped. Using your chain nose pliers, squeeze the sides of the crimp bead cover together so that the gap is closed and it completely covers your crimp bead. Repeat this same step on the other side of your necklace, covering that crimp bead as well.
Earrings
  1. Remember to double these instructions to make your matched pair of earrings.
  2. Cut a 7 inch length of 24 gauge brass wire. Thread onto the wire 3 Czech seed bead 8/0 true red, 1 antique brass diamond cut-out 6mm round bead, another true red seed bead, 1 antique brass sleek noodle tube bead, 1 Czech seed bead 8/0 true red, 1 brass bead cap, 1 Czech fire polished glass 8mm round bead red coral, another bead cap, another true red seed bead, 1 antique brass sleek noodle tube bead, another true red seed bead, 1 antique brass diamond cut-out 6mm round bead, and another 3 true red seed beads.
  3. Slide your beads so that they are in the middle if your wire. Gently pull the two sides of wire together so that the 8mm Czech bead is in the middle. Make two tight twists with your two wires to form a hoop shape. Cut off one of the wire tails using flush cutters. With the other wire tail. Create a wrapped wire loop. Make sure to overlap some of the already twisted wire to help make it more secure.
  4. Open the loop at the base of the earring hook the same way you would open a jump ring Link onto the hoop the wrapped wire loop you created in the previous step. Close the loop back up.
  5. All done!
