Retired - The Disco Necklace

PROJECT N110
Designer: Andrea Morici
Skill Level: Beginner
Feel like dancing the night away? Get on your boogie shoes, a hip little dress, and this fun fringed number featuring disco ball-like accent beads, and you're ready to go. While you're at it, make yourself a mathing pair of Disco Earrings.
Instructions
Begin by cutting a piece of chain about nineteen and a half inches long, beginning and ending with the the larger links. Set this aside.Cut eleven pieces of the satin silver wire at roughly four inches long each.Thread a crimp bead on to each piece of wire about an eighth of an inch from the end and crimp down.Thread the following beads on to the pieces of wire, and when you get to the end of each piece add a crimp, thread the end of the wire through a closed jump ring, back through the crimp bead and crimp down: Thread one wire with: a small fire polish beadan 8mm sparkle beadsix more fire polish beadsa tube bead. Thread two wires with:a small fire polishan 8mm sparkle beadfive more fire polish beadsa tube bead. Thread two wires with:a small fire polishan 8mm sparkle beadfour more fire polish beadsa tube bead. Thread two wires with:a small fire polishan 8mm sparkle beadthree more fire polish beadsand a tube bead. Thread two wires with:a small fire polishan 8mm sparkle beadtwo more fire polish beadsa tube bead. Thread two wires with:a small fire polishan 8mm sparkle beadone more fire polish beadsa tube beadAfter you have completed all of the beaded wire dangles place a sparkle crimp bead cover over each of the crimps, gently close, and trim off excess wire.Add an open jump ring to each of the closed jump rings at the end of each dangle.Add the longest dangle to the center link of your chain and work outward from there, adding the shorter dangles as you go. Add the dangles to the large links of the chain only and make sure you add them to the same side of the chain so that they hang properly.Thread the following on to a headpin: a fire polish bead, an 8mm sparkle bead, and another fire polish bead. Create a simple loop when you get to the end and trim off excess wire.Add that headpin to the last link at one end of the chain. Add the lobster clasp to the other end of the chain by opening the last link the way you would open a jump ring, threading through the loop on the lobster clasp, and closing again.Tip: Check package quantities for each component. You may have extra material to make more than one finished project, or will have leftovers for other projects. In some cases, adding on just one more package of a component may be all you need to make multiple pieces.All designs © Beadaholique Inc.
