Sapphires & Spikes Necklace

PROJECT N3009
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Beginner
This necklace is an eye-catching combination of feminine and edgy; the sparkly sapphire blue Czech beads look great against the sleek silver spikes and metallic beads. This is a great modern look!
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. 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 cutter.
  4. String your beads onto your wire starting with one 20 metallic silver beads.
  5. Next string on one plastic spike, followed by one sapphire blue Czech glass bead.
  6. Repeat this sequence 18 more times, ending with one last plastic spike.
  7. Then string on 20 more metallic silver beads.
  8. 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.
  9. Using your crimp pliers, crimp your crimp bead. Snip off any excess beading wire.
  10. Your necklace is now ready.
