Retired - Zelda's Journey

PROJECT N705
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Beginner
This necklace is full of old world charm and looks like a treasured keepsake from the travels of a great aunt or grandmother. The 3 different styles Czech Glass beads combine beautifully and add to the exotic elegance of the piece.
Instructions
  1. Place a bead stopper on one end of your necklace, about 4 inches from the tail.
  2. String onto your wire: 1 crimp bead, 1 Czech glass table cut window teardrop bead in light sapphire picasso (strung onto the wire narrow side first), 1 Vintaj foliage bead cap (cupping the last bead), and 11 more teardrops beads all facing the same direction as the first.
  3. Next string 1 Vintaj foliage bead cap (facing away from the previous beads), 1 Czech Fire Polished 10mm round bead in light amethyst, another bead cap (this time facing the last bead, and 1 Czech Fire Polished 11mm x 17mm rondelle bead in cobalt. Repeat this same sequence another 6 times and then also add 1 more segment of bead cap/amethyst bead/bead cap.
  4. Next sting 11 Czech glass table cut window teardrop beads in light sapphire picasso (strung onto the wire widest side first), 1 Vintaj foliage bead cap (facing away from the last bead), 1 more teardrop bead, and 4 crimp beads. Place your wire through the hole in your Vintaj toggle bar and slide the bar to rest on the crimp beads. String another crimp bead and loop your thread back around, down through the hole in the toggle bar, back through all the crimp beads, and back through several of the Czech glass beads. Pull snug. Now take your crimping pliers and crimp the second crimp bead from the teardrop bead. Cut off any excess wire using your flush cutters.
  5. Remove the bead stopper from the other end of your necklace. Place the beading wire through the loop at the base of your Vintaj ring, loop it around and back down through the crimp bead and through several of the Czech glass teardrop beads. Pull snug and crimp the crimp bead. Cut off excess wire with flush cutters.
  6. Enjoy!
