Retired - River Mist Necklace

PROJECT N2054
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Beginner
I love that these green and white Agate gemstone beads have the feel like they have been plucked out of a river bed. With delicate white ribbon, these gemstone strands make a wonderful statement necklace.
Instructions
  1. Cut two lengths of beading wire. One 15 inches and one 20 inches.
  2. Take the 15 inch strand and add a bead stopper about 2 inches from one end. String 30 beads.
  3. Add one crimp tube and string the wire through the loop of the strand reducer closest to the middle. (see photo for reference) Thread it back down though the crimp tube. Crimp the crimp tube. Snip any excess wire. Add a crimp cover. Move to the other side of this strand and repeat this process.
  4. Take the 20 inch strand and add a bead stopper about 2 inches from one end. String 39 beads.
  5. Add one crimp tube and string the wire through the loop of the strand reducer furthest from the middle. (see photo for reference) Thread it back down though the crimp tube. Crimp the crimp tube. Snip any excess wire. Add a crimp cover. Move to the other side of this strand and repeat this process.
  6. Take one length of ribbon, fold in half and tie a larks head knot onto one closed jump ring at the mid point. Open one jump ring and attach it to the top loop of the strand reducer and to the closed jump ring. Repeat on the other side.
  7. This necklace is adjustable in the back by tying the ribbon at your desired length.
