Retired - Third Times The Charm Necklace

PROJECT N3011
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Beginner
This feminine necklace pairs pearlized Czech glass beads in light rose and jet matte with three bright gold toned charms. The result is a lovely necklace that adds a touch of class to any look.
Instructions
These instructions will make a finished necklace approximately 18" long. Be sure to include at least 6 additional inches of wire to allow for crimping, two or three inches for each side.
  1. Cut 24 inches of beading wire and string the tip through a crimp bead.
  2. String on your clasp then loop the beading wire back through the crimp bead (you want a short tail of about 3 inches of beading wire). Pull snug so that you have a small loop.
  3. Using your crimp pliers, crimp your crimp bead. Snip off any excess beading wire from the short tail using your flush cutters.
  4. Before you begin stringing on your beads, take note that two of the charms (the swallow charm and the horse shoe charm) come with jump rings attached. You can keep these on, or remove them with your flush cutters and add on your own jump rings for symmetry. I used the jump rings that came with those two charms and added a jump ring to the third charm that did not have one.
  5. String your beads and charms onto your wire in this order: 23 light rose Czech beads, 2 jet matte Czech beads, 1 heart charm (you will need to add your own jump ring to this charm), 2 jet matte Czech beads, 1 horse shoe charm, 2 jet matte Czech beads, 1 swallow charm, 2 jet matte Czech beads and 23 light rose Czech beads.
  6. Once you've strung all your beads, take the end of your wire and string it through another crimp bead. Add a closed jump ring and loop the wire back into the crimp bead.
  7. Using your crimp pliers, crimp your crimp bead. Snip off any excess beading wire with your flush cutters.
  8. Your necklace is now ready.
