Tal Necklace

PROJECT N7070
Designer: Rachel Zaimont
Skill Level: Beginner
Delicate coils of turquoise seed beads hug a Nunn Design open frame pendant in this breezy necklace that works well as a layering piece and also looks pretty on its own.
Instructions
These materials will make a 16 inch necklace. For a longer or shorter necklace, purchase a finished chain necklace of a different length.
  1. Using flush cutters, cut 1 foot of 26 gauge gold wire and straighten it with nylon jaw pliers.
  2. Please watch our video on how to coil seed beads around a wire frame and make a statement earring. Following the instructions in the video, make 3 anchoring wraps with your wire on the Nunn Design frame pendant and begin coiling 15/0 Toho seed beads around the frame. When you've finished coiling seed beads around the bottom curve of the frame, make 3 more anchoring wraps and cut off the extra wire with flush cutters.
  3. Take your finished chain necklace and find the center link of chain. Cut that link off with flush cutters to open up the middle of the necklace.
  4. Using pliers, open a jump ring. Slide it through one of the holes at the top of the open frame pendant, and also slide it through a link of chain on the end where you cut it apart in the previous step. Close the jump ring.
  5. Repeat step 4 to attach the other side of the open frame focal to the finished chain necklace. Enjoy your necklace!
