Retired - Serenity Medallion Necklace

PROJECT N8064
Designer: Alexandra Smith
Skill Level: Intermediate
A soothing mix of purples and blues are woven using Czech glass 2-hole SuperDuos, Miyuki round seed beads, and Cymbal components. The beaded focal is embellished with a textured leaf charm, and hangs from a finished cable chain.
Instructions
These instructions will make a 17 inch necklace. To adjust the size, choose your desired length of finished chain.
  1. To see a similar bead weaving technique, please watch the video: How to Make the SuperDuo Medallion Earrings Using Cymbal Components. Based on what you have learned in the video, cut 2 feet of Fireline thread and create your bead woven medallion using the SuperDuo Serenity bead mix and gold tone Cymbal components. For this design variation, you will be adding on three Cymbal bead endings along the outer row of your bead weaving in the configuration shown in the photo.
  2. To attach your chain: Use flush cutters to cut the centermost link on your finished cable chain. Then use pliers to open an oval jump ring and slide on the end link on one side of your chain. Also slide on the loop of one of the Cymbal bead endings on your bead weaving. Repeat this step to attach your chain to the Cymbal bead ending located four SuperDuos over (see photo for reference).
  3. To hang your leaf charm: Open another jump ring and slide on the hole of your charm. Also slide on the third Cymbal bead ending on your bead weaving. Note: make sure the textured side of the leaf is facing the same direction as the textured sides of your Cymbal bead substitutes. Close the jump ring. All done!
