Single-Strand Necklace with Silver-Plated Pewter and Enamel Focals, Wood Rings and Seed Beaded Links

STEP 1
Using scissors, cut one 36-inch length of brown Nymo thread. Thread on a beading needle.
STEP 2
Using the Peyote stitch, create a woven strip that is four root beer seed beads wide by sixteen root beer seed beads long.
STEP 3
Wrap the Peyote stitched strip around the blue neck cord and through the center of a 20mm wood ring. Weave the end of the thread back and forth through the first and last row of seed beads to close the loop and then weave the thread in a zig-zag pattern through the strip to secure the thread. Trim any excess thread.
STEP 4
Repeat Steps 1-3 to attach a 28mm wood ring to the 20mm wood ring.
STEP 5
Using flush-cutters, cut the following lengths of silver-plated 4.8x3.3mm cable chain:
  • Three 3/4 inch lengths
  • One 1-3/4 inch length
  • One 2-1/4 inch length
STEP 6
Using a 3/4 inch length of silver-plated cable chain, pass the chain through the center of the 28mm wood ring.
STEP 7
Using a pair of chain-nose pliers and flat-nose pliers, open a 4.5mm jumpring. Pass the open ring through the first link and the last link on the 3/4 inch length of silver-plated cable chain. Close the jumpring.
STEP 8
Using a 2-1/4 inch length of silver-plated cable chain, pass the chain through the hole on the 28mm wood ring, leaving a tassel on one end of the chain. Pass a 4.5mm jumpring through the links at the edge of the wood ring to hold the chain in place.
STEP 9
Repeat Step 7 to attach two 3/4 inch lengths of silver-plated cable chain to the wood ring.
STEP 10
Repeat Step 8 to attach one 1-3/4 inch length of silver-plated cable chain to the wood ring.
STEP 11
Using a 4.5mm jumpring, attach the following focal pieces to the ends of the following chains:
  • Open peace symbol to the jumpring attached to the first 3/4 inch length of chain
  • Solid large "peace" with peace symbol to the last link on the 2-1/4 inch length of chain
  • Blue "peace" with open peace symbol to the jumpring attached to the second 3/4 inch length of chain
  • Solid small "peace" to the jumpring attached to the first 3/4 inch length of chain using a 5mm jumpring
