Retired - Peace Necklace

PROJECT N111
Designer: Andrea Morici
Skill Level: Beginner
Flash back to the Summer of Love with this groovy necklace, a modern take on a classic look.
Instructions
  1. Cut a piece of Soft Touch beading wire three feet long, and secure one end to prevent accidental bead spillage. We recommend using a Bead Stopper.
  2. Thread alternating round wood beads and seed beads (various colors) beginning and ending with a wood bead. We made our necklace to be almost three feet long, but you may use more or less beads depending on how long you would like your necklace to be.
  3. Remove the bead stopper and add a crimp bead to each end of the necklace, but do not crimp yet.
  4. Thread one end of the beading wire through the loop part of the clasp, and thread the other end through the hook part of the clasp.
  5. Thread both ends back through their respective crimp beads, and crimp them. Trim off excess wire.
  6. Find the center of the necklace, there should be a seed bead there. Place your pinch bail over that seed bead, insert the two points of the bail into the hole on your peace sign pendant and squeeze the bail together.
