Retired - Stellaluna Necklace

PROJECT N3068
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Beginner
Featuring onyx crescent moon beads and Miyuki glass baroque pearls, this vintage-inspired necklace is both unique and dramatic.
Instructions
This necklace measures 18" long. To make the necklace longer or shorter, simply adjust the wire length.
  1. Using your flush cutters, cut a 24" length of beading wire. (I have already included 3 additional inches on each side to allow for crimping).
  2. String on a crimp tube, followed by a silver plated jump ring. Take your wire and string it back through the crimp tube. Crimp your crimp tube using your crimping pliers.
  3. Next, string on the following beads onto your beading wire (and your short tail as well for added security): 1 black bead, 1 pearl bead, 25 black beads, 8 pearl beads, 1 black bead, 1 onyx moon bead (string through one hole, add 4 pearl beads into the crevice of the moon bead, and string the wire through the second hole) and 1 black bead.
  4. Repeat this onyx moon bead and pearl sequence 6 more times, remembering to string on 1 black bead in between each onyx moon bead. Refer to photo for placement assistance.
  5. Then string on 1 black bead, 8 pearl beads, 25 black beads, 1 pearl bead and 1 black bead.
  6. Add on a crimp tube, followed by the loop on your lobster clasp. Take the wire back through the crimp tube and pull snug. Crimp the crimp tube and snip off any excess wire using your flush cutters.
  7. Close the clasp and you're done!
