I want to make a black necklace with half circle of beads every 6 beads so they hang down between the main necklace. How do I do that? Thank you!

This design incorporates layered tiers of beaded Zebra Wire™ formed into half-circles.

The wire is cut into 1-1/2 inch lengths and a simple loop formed on one end. Beads are strung onto the wire, shaped then a second simple loop is formed to finish the other end of the wire and secure the beads. The wire half-circles are then incorporated into the design. For complete step-by-step instructions, see the project listed in the resources below.
