Retired - Spring Fever Necklace

PROJECT N151
Designer: Andrea Morici
Skill Level: Intermediate
Spring is in the air! Make this pretty pastel number, a celebration of the renewing properties of Springtime.
Instructions
  1. Begin by cutting a piece of Artistic craft wire at about three feet long. Wrap the first inch or so of the wire tightly around the center of the smaller filigree pendant.
  2. Pull the wire up through the face of the pendant and add a 6mm Amazonite bead. Thread the wire back down through the pendant and back up again nearby.
  3. Using this method, add your beads in a random pattern, including the lucite flowers with a 3mm aventurine center.
  4. When you have wire wrapped all of your beads and lucite flowers onto your filigree, pull the wire back down and wrap around the filigree several times, tightly, to anchor it. Trim off excess wire.
  5. Center the wire-wrapped filigree piece on the larger filigree piece.
  6. Join the two pieces with 6mm jump rings. We only used four jump rings, but feel free to use more if you so desire. Set this aside.
  7. Cut four pieces of Soft Touch beading wire at one foot long each. Secure one end of each piece with a Bead Stopper.
  8. Onto two of the strands, thread the following:
  9. an 8mm Amazonite bead, a bead cap
  10. five more 8mm Amazonite beads
  11. a daisy spacer
  12. a 4mm moonstone bead
  13. a daisy spacer
  14. nine 6mm Amazonite beads
  15. a daisy spacer
  16. a 4mm yellow honey jade bead (be sure to pick the more yellow beads to use
  17. not the cream colored beads)
  18. a daisy spacer
  19. twelve 4mm Amazonite beads
  20. a daisy spacer
  21. a 4mm turquoise jade bead
  22. a daisy spacer
  23. and sixteen 3mm Aventurine beads.
  24. Secure the ends and set aside.
  25. Onto the other two Soft Touch strands, thread the following:
  26. an 8mm Amazonite bead
  27. a bead cap
  28. four more 8mm Amazonite beads
  29. a daisy spacer
  30. a 4mm moonstone bead
  31. a daisy spacer
  32. eight 6mm Amazonite beads
  33. a daisy spacer
  34. a 4mm yellow honey jade bead (be sure to pick the more yellow beads to use, not the cream colored beads)
  35. a daisy spacer
  36. ten 4mm Amazonite beads
  37. a daisy spacer
  38. a 4mm turquoise jade bead
  39. a daisy spacer
  40. and fourteen 3mm Aventurine beads.
  41. Secure the ends and set aside.
  42. Remove the bead stopper from the wide end of both of the longer strands. Add a crimp tube (but do not crimp it yet) to both strands.
  43. Thread the two ends through the lower part of the "petals" on either side of the large filigree pendant (see photo), and back through the crimp tubes. Crimp the tubes and trim off excess wire.
  44. Remove the bead stopper from the wide end of both of the shorter strands. Add a crimp tube (but do not crimp it yet) to both strands.
  45. Thread the two ends through the upper part of the "petals" on either side of the large filigree pendant (see photo), and back through the crimp tubes. Crimp the tubes and trim off excess wire.
  46. Remove the rest of the bead stoppers, and add an uncrimped crimp tube to each strand.
  47. Thread the four ends of the wire through the appropriate holes on your toggle clasp. Thread them back through the crimp tubes, crimp the tubes, and trim off excess wire.
  48. Finally, add a crimp bead cover to each of the crimp tubes and gently close them.
