Instructions
These instructions will give you a necklace that is 23 inches.
  1. Cut off a length of beading wire 30 inches. Place a bead stopper about 3 inches from one end.
  2. String on your beads in this order: 38 purple rondelles, one 16mm turquoise, one purple rondelle, one 16mm silver mesh bead, one purple rondelle, one 16mm turquoise, one purple rondelle, one 16mm silver mesh bead, one purple rondelle, one 16mm turquoise, one purple rondelle, and one 25mm silver mesh bead. Mirror the above pattern to complete the necklace, starting with one purple rondelle.
  3. String on one crimp tube. Thread the wire through the loop on one side of the magnetic clasp and back down through the crimp tube. Crimp the crimp tube. Snip the excess wire and add a crimp cover.
  4. On the other side of the necklace, remove the bead stopper and repeat the above instruction on this side of the necklace. Note: Do not pull the wire too tightly. You want the necklace to hang nicely.
  5. All done!
