Necklace

Step 1
Using a pair of chain-nose pliers and bent-nose pliers separate one 19-inch length and one 21-inch length of gold-plated 6mm filigree round chain.

Using flush-cutters cut the following lengths of Accu-Flex® professional-quality beading wire:
  • One 14-inch length
  • Two 12-inch lengths
  • One 6-inch length
Step 2
String onto the 14-inch length of beading wire one gold-filled 2x2mm crimp bead and one ring on the tab portion of one gold-plated 12mm filigree round 2-strand tab clasp. Pass the beading wire back through the crimp bead. Pull the beading wire so the crimp rests snug against the ring of the clasp leaving approximately 1/4 inch of beading wire on the end. Place a small amount of adhesive (Loctite®) inside the crimp (optional).

Using crimping pliers crimp the crimp bead. Using flush-cutters trim the excess from the short ends of the beading wire.
Step 3
String onto the beading wire seventy-six Czech glass metallic gold #11 seed beads and one gold-filled 2x2mm crimp bead.
Step 4
Pass the end of one 6-inch length of beading wire through the crimp bead so approximately 1/8 inch sticks out the other end. Crimp the crimp bead and trim the excess from the short end of the beading wire. Place one gold-plated 4mm stardust crimp cover over the crimp bead then gently close it.
Step 5
String the following onto both lengths of beading wire:
  • One Swarovski emerald 6mm round
  • One Swarovski and gold-plated crystal AB 4x2mm rondelle
  • The hole on one end of one Czech glass green 3-strand spacer
  • One Swarovski and gold-plated crystal AB 4x2mm rondelle
  • One Swarovski emerald 6mm round
  • One Swarovski and gold-plated crystal AB 4x2mm rondelle
  • Three Swarovski emerald 6mm marguerite flowers
  • One Swarovski and gold-plated crystal AB 4x2mm rondelle
  • One Swarovski emerald 6mm round
  • One Swarovski and gold-plated crystal AB 4x2mm rondelle
  • The hole on one end of one Czech glass green 3-strand spacer
  • One Swarovski and gold-plated crystal AB 4x2mm rondelle
Step 6
Separate the beading wire lengths and string onto each, thirty-three Czech glass metallic gold #11 seed beads.

Pass both lengths of beading wire through the center of one Hemalyke rainbow coating 40mm donut focal.
Step 7
Repeat the stringing sequence in Step 5 in the opposite direction using the hole on the opposite end of each Czech glass green 3-strand spacer.
Step 8

String one crimp onto both lengths of beading wire, crimp the crimp bead to connect the wire and trim the excess from the end of the 6-inch wire. Place one gold-plated 4mm stardust crimp cover over the crimp bead then gently close it.

Continue to string seventy-six Czech glass metallic gold #11 seed beads onto the 14-inch wire.

Repeat Step 2 to secure the strand to the second ring on the tab portion of the gold-plated 12mm 2-strand tab clasp.
Step 9
String onto both 12-inch lengths of beading wire one gold-filled 2x2mm crimp bead and the loop on one end of the 21-inch length of gold-plated 6mm filigree round chain. Pass the beading wire lengths back through the crimp bead. Pull the beading wire so the crimp rests snug against the jumpring on the clasp leaving approximately 1/4 inch on the end of each length of beading wire. Place a small amount of adhesive (Loctite) inside the crimp (optional).

Using crimping pliers crimp the crimp bead. Using flush-cutters trim the excess from the short ends of the beading wire. Place one gold-plated 4mm stardust crimp cover over the crimp bead then gently close it.
Step 10
String the following onto both lengths of beading wire:
  • One Swarovski emerald 6mm round
  • One Swarovski and gold-plated crystal AB 4x2mm rondelle
  • The hole on one end of one Czech glass green 3-strand spacer
  • One Swarovski and gold-plated crystal AB 4x2mm rondelle
  • One Swarovski emerald 6mm round
Step 11
Continue to string the following:
  • One Swarovski and gold-plated crystal AB 4x2mm rondelle
  • The hole on one end of one Czech glass green 3-strand spacer
  • One Swarovski and gold-plated crystal AB 4x2mm rondelle
  • One gold-plated 6mm stardust round
Repeat this stringing sequence a total of three times.
Step 12
Continue to string the following:
  • One Swarovski and gold-plated crystal AB 4x2mm rondelle
  • The hole on one end of one Czech glass green 3-strand spacer
  • One Swarovski and gold-plated crystal AB 4x2mm rondelle
  • One Swarovski emerald 6mm round
  • One Swarovski and gold-plated crystal AB 4x2mm rondelle
  • Three Swarovski emerald 6mm marguerite flowers
  • One Swarovski and gold-plated crystal AB 4x2mm rondelle
  • One Swarovski emerald 6mm round
  • One Swarovski and gold-plated crystal AB 4x2mm rondelle
  • The hole on one end of one Czech glass green 3-strand spacer
  • One Swarovski and gold-plated crystal AB 4x2mm rondelle
Step 13
Separate the beading wire lengths and string onto each wire, fifty-four Czech glass metallic gold #11 seed beads.

Pass both lengths of beading wire through the center of the Hemalyke rainbow coating 40mm donut focal from Step 6.
Step 14
Repeat the stringing sequence in Step 13 in the opposite direction using the hole on the opposite end of each Czech glass green 3-strand spacer.
Step 15
Repeat Step 9 to attach the 19-inch length of chain.
Step 16
Using a pair of chain-nose pliers and bent-nose pliers open the loop on the opposite end of the 19-inch length of gold-plated 6mm filigree round chain. Pass the loop through one ring on the filigree round portion of the tab clasp. Repeat to attach the 21-inch length of gold-plated 6mm filigree round chain to the second ring on filigree round portion of the tab clasp.
