Retired - Noel Necklace

PROJECT N518
Designer: Kathy Mannix
Skill Level: Beginner
Swarovski Olivine briolettes and traditional green and red silk cord make this a must have for your holiday outfit.
Instructions
Start by laying out all 6 fabric beads (PND-1003) on a flat surface. Now, pick up one of the crystal flatbacks (SWF-10986) with a pair of tweezers (XTL-4000). Use a toothpick to dab a small dot of glue (XTL-1053) onto the flatback. You will use 3 crystals per fabric bead. Place one crystal in the center of the fabric bead. Next, place the other 2 flatbacks evenly spaced around the center of the fabric bead (see photo). You have at least 5 minutes to make adjustments before the glue starts to set. For maximum strength bond, allow 24-72 hours for complete curing.Next, open one of the big eye needles (XTL-3165) and thread about 2 inches of the green silk cord (XCR-46098) through the eye. Thread the needle through one of the red fabric beads until it is about half way down the cord. Remove the needle from the green cord. This time open the eye of the need and thread about 2 inches of the Red cord (XCR-46008) through the eye. Thread through the fabric bead you just placed on the green cord. Remove the needle from the red cord.Repeat the previous 3 steps to place the other fabric bead on the two cords. Slide 2 fabric beads in the center about a 1/2 inch apart from one another at the very center of the 2 cords (See Photo).Take one of the crimp ends (FCR-4215). Use a pair of chainnose pliers to bend the loop slightly, be careful not to bend too much, as the loop can break off. Open the eye of the needle and thread about 2 inches of one side of both cords through the eye. Thread through one of the crimp ends and slide down next to the fabric bead leaving about a 1/2 inch space. Use a pair of chainnose pliers to crimp the very center of the crimp end to hold it in place on both of the cords. Repeat the previous steps until all of the fabric beads and the crimp ends are evenly distributed on both of the cords (about a 1/2 inch apart starting at the center of the cords).Slightly open one of the small bails (FCO-3016) and line up to the holes on either side of one of the small Swarovski briolettes (SWC-4346). Squeeze the bail on both sides with your fingers until it is snug against the sides of the briolette.Repeat previous step for the larger bail (FCO-3010) and larger Swarovski briolette (SWC-4446).Open one of the small gold plated jump rings (FJR-5240). Link the jump ring onto both the loop of one of the crimp ends and one of the small bails (FCO 3016) with the Swarovski briolette. Repeat the previous step for the other 3 crimp ends and bails.Open one large gold plated jump ring (FJR-5260). Attach the jump ring to the very center of the necklace between the 2 red fabric beads and the large bail (FCO-3019) with Swarovski briolette (SWC-4446).Now just make a regular knot every inch to inch and a half above the red fabric beads.You're finished!Please refer to photo for more detailed information about this project.
