Retired - Red Hot Necklace

PROJECT N231
Designer: Andrea Morici
Skill Level: Intermediate
With its triangle focal of warm reds, hot pinks, smokin' mauves, and its glowing Swarovski Crystal accents, this necklace will add some heat to your wardrobe.
Instructions
  1. If you aren't already familiar with how to bead weave a triangle, please watch our instructional video before proceeding.
  2. To create the triangle, follow this pattern: weave four rows of 11/0 magenta lined crystal AB Miyuki Delicas, four rows of 11/0 silver lined mauve Miyuki Delicas, four rows of 11/0 light cranberry lined topaz luster Miyuki Delicas, and four rows of 11/0 dyed opaque cranberry Miyuki Delicas. Tie off your thread and weave in the remainder.
  3. Using your flush cutters, cut a two foot long piece of beading wire. Secure one end with a bead stopper .
  4. Onto the wire, thread the following:
  5. a magenta lined crystal AB Miyuki Delica
  6. a silver lined mauve Miyuki Delica, a light cranberry lined topaz luster Miyuki Delica
  7. and a dyed opaque cranberry Miyuki Delica.
  8. This beading pattern will be henceforth referrred to as "A". Now thread:
  9. a 4mm dark red coral Swarovski crystal bicone or "B"
  10. A
  11. a 4mm Light Siam AB Swarovski crystal bicone
  12. A
  13. B
  14. A
  15. a 5mm fuchsia Swarovski crystal bicone
  16. A
  17. B
  18. A
  19. a 4mm amethyst Swarovski crystal bicone
  20. A
  21. and B.
  22. Repeat this stringing sequence two more times, for a total of three.
  23. Thread your wire through the central four beads on a flat side of your triangle focal pendant, threading a cranberry opaque Miyuki Delica between each.
  24. Move the pendant to the center of your wire.
  25. Thread the other half of your necklace as a mirror image of the first.
  26. At the end of your strand, thread a crimp bead, but do not crimp it yet. Thread your wire through the loop on one half of your clasp, back through the crimp bead and several consecutively strung beads, pull your wire relatively snug (leave some wiggle room for the clasp) and crimp your crimp bead.
  27. Remove the bead stopper from the other end of your necklace and repeat the previous step. Trim off all excess wire.
