Retired - My Blue Heaven Necklace

PROJECT N1065
Designer: Megan Milliken
Skill Level: Beginner
This necklace is a pretty update on a classic look and features turquoise crystal faux pearls in a short graduated strand.
Instructions
This is a choker length necklace, measuring just 15.5" in length. To adjust your finished length, be sure to add extra pearl beads.
  1. Cut a 20 inch length of white beading wire.
  2. String one crimp tube 2 inches from one end of your beading wire. Pass through one side of a thread and wire protector, then turn the wire and pass down through the other side. Pinch the wire and thread protector closed and pass the beading wire back through the crimp tube; crimp.
  3. Onto your wire, string {1 pink coral 3mm pearl and 1 turquoise 10mm pearl} seven times.
  4. String {1 pink coral pearl and one turquoise 12mm pearl} twice.
  5. String {1 pink coral pearl and 1 turquoise 14mm pearl} twice.
  6. String {1 pink coral pearl and 1 turquoise 16mm pearl} three times. String 1 pink coral pearl.
  7. Repeat step #3, reversing the order of the beads.
  8. String one crimp tube and the second wire and thread protector. Pinch the wire and thread protector closed and pass the beading wire back through the crimp tube; crimp.
  9. Use a jump ring to attach one half of the clasp to each wire and thread protector.
