Retired - Spiked Gemstone Necklace

PROJECT N3093
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Beginner
Add a little rock 'n' roll edge to your jewelry collection with this gemstone statement necklace featuring silver acrylic spikes and frosted blackstone beads.
Instructions
The necklace in this project measures 24 inches. To make it longer or shorter, simply adjust the length.
  1. Begin by cutting a 30 inch length of beading wire. (I have already included 3 inches on each side to allow for crimping).
  2. Onto one end, slide on a silver plated crimp tube. Also slide on the loop from your silver plated lobster clasp. Take the wire back through the crimp tube and pull snug. Crimp the crimp tube with your crimping pliers and snip off any excess wire with your flush cutters.
  3. You will now begin stringing on your beads. String on the following: 66 3mm metal beads, 1 4mm metal bead, 1 blackstone bead, 1 4mm bead and 1 acrylic spike. Repeat this pattern 9 more times. Then string on another 66 3mm metal beads. See photo for placement assistance and remember to attach a bead stopper anytime you need to set your stringing down.
  4. Next, string on a crimp tube, followed by a silver plated closed jump ring. Take the wire back through the crimp tube and pull snug. Crimp your crimp tube with your crimping pliers and snip off any wire using your flush cutters.
  5. Close your clasp and you're done!
