Retired - Wine Drops Necklace

PROJECT N3008
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Beginner
This elegant necklace incorporates 2 colors of gorgeous wine-colored briolette beads strung on sleek
Instructions
These instructions will make a finished necklace approximately 17" long. Be sure to include at least 6 additional inches of wire to allow for crimping, two or three inches for each side.
  1. Measure 24 inches of your wire and cut using your flush cutters.
  2. Next, 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 cutter.
  4. String on one large briolette bead followed by a smaller one. Repeat this sequence 8 times, ending with one large briolette bead.
  5. Once you've strung all your beads, take the end of your wire and string it through another crimp bead. Add a jump ring and loop the wire back into the crimp bead.
  6. Using your crimp pliers, crimp your crimp bead. Snip off any excess beading wire.
  7. Your necklace is now ready!
