Retired - Summer Punch Necklace

PROJECT N1008
Designer: Megan Milliken
Skill Level: Intermediate
Vibrant turquoise and green beads provide a pop of fresh, bright color in this necklace featuring a loom- woven piece of beadwork set in a silver plated rectangular bezel.
Instructions
As you weave, make sure you do not pull your work too tight. Keep it snug, but use your bezel as a guide to keep your piece the right width and length to fit properly.
  1. Before you begin, watch the instructional video: How to Use a Bead Loom.
  2. String a beading loom with white NYMO beading thread, laying 15 strands across.
  3. As demonstrated in the video, weave together Toho size 8/0 seed beads in transparent frosted crystal, opaque sour apple, and opaque turquiose. Follow the pattern in the chart for placement.
  4. Tie off and weave in your working threads (the weft threads).
  5. Cut the work from the loom, leaving a few inches to either side of your work. Trim the warp threads to about 1 1/2".
  6. Flip your work over to the back side. Apply some E6000 glue to the back of the piece. Neatly lay the loose warp thread ends into the glue, making sure the threads are folded snugly to the back without pulling them too tight. Allow the glue to dry for at least an hour.
  7. Apply a thin but ample coat of E6000 to the bottom of a silver plated 24 x 48mm rectangle bezel pendant. Make sure you get the glue all the way into the sides and corners. Work quickly so that the glue does not start to set before you glue in your work.
  8. Lay your beadwork into the bezel, with the glued down threads down. Press the piece down into the glue, making sure that the corners and sides are glued down.
  9. Allow the glue to dry for at least 24 hours.
  10. Use a pair of flush cutters to cut an 18" length of silver plated drawn oval cable chain. Thread the length of chain through the bail on the bezel pendant.
  11. Use silver plated 4mm, 22 gauge jump rings to attach one side of a silver plated hook and eye clasp to each end of the chain.
