Necklace

STEP 1
Using flush-cutters cut one 57-inch length of Accu-Flex® professional-quality beading wire.
STEP 2
String onto the beading wire one 12Kt gold-filled 2x2mm crimp bead, one Accu-Guard™ wire protector and the loop on one antiqued brass-finished lobster claw clasp. Pass the beading wire back through the crimp bead. Pull the beading wire so the crimp rests snug against the Accu-Guard 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 end. Place one antiqued gold-plated 4mm crimp cover over the crimp bead then gently close it.
STEP 3
String the following onto the beading wire:
  • Five Czech glass metallic gold #11 seed beads
  • Five turquoise 6x3mm rondelles
  • One Swarovski and gold-plated crystal AB 4x2mm rondelle
  • One cultured freshwater pearl gold coin
  • One Swarovski and gold-plated crystal AB 4x2mm rondelle
  • Five turquoise 6x3mm rondelles
Repeat this stringing sequence a total of twenty-seven times.
STEP 4
Continue to string the following:
  • Five Czech glass metallic gold #11 seed beads
  • Five turquoise 6x3mm rondelles
STEP 5
Repeat Step 2 to attach one antiqued gold-plated 8mm jumpring to finish the necklace.

Using a pair of chain-nose pliers, round-nose pliers and flush-cutters form a simple loop on the straight end of the wire creating a turquoise and pearl drop.

Open the loop on one gold-plated leverback earwire. Pass the loop through the loop on the turquoise and pearl drop. Close the loop.
