Single-Strand Necklace with Glass Beads, Black Onyx Gemstone Beads and Swarovski Crystal

STEP 1
Using flush-cutters, cut one 26-inch length of Accu-Flex® professional-quality beading wire.
STEP 2
String onto the wire, one silver-plated 2x2mm crimp bead and the loop on the tab portion of one gunmetal-plated 11x6mm box clasp. Pass the wire back through the crimp bead pulling the wire snug against the loop. Place a small amount of adhesive (Loctite®) inside the crimp (optional). Using the crimping pliers, crimp the crimp bead. Using flush-cutters, trim the excess wire from the short end. Place a gunmetal-plated 4mm crimp cover over the crimp bead then gently close it.
STEP 3
String the following components onto the straight end of the wire:
  • One black onyx 6mm round bead
  • One gunmetal-plated 10mm bead cap
  • One Swarovski jet 10mm faceted round bead
  • One gunmetal-plated 10mm bead cap
  • Twelve black onyx 8mm round beads

  • Three black onyx 8mm round beads
  • Two gunmetal-plated 6x2mm rondelle beads

Twenty-eight glass black AB 25x13mm marquise beads (in alternating directions).
STEP 5
Repeat Step 3 adding beads in the opposite direction to string the second half of the necklace.
STEP 6
Repeat Step 2 to attach the clasp to the second half of the necklace.
