Necklace

STEP 1
Cut the following:
  • One 28-inch length of Accu-Flex® professional-quality beading wire
  • One 3-1/2 inch length Wrapit® Jeweler's Bronze 22-gauge wire
  • Two 1/2 inch lengths of French wire
STEP 2
Create a 90-degree bend in the 3-1/2 inch length of wire approximately 1-1/2 inches from one end. String the metallic gold freeform druzy focal onto the longer end of the wire and slide it close to the bend in the wire. Create a second bend in the wire approximately 10mm from the previous forming a triangle then create a briolette wrapped loop.
STEP 3
String onto the beading wire one crimp bead and one length of French wire. Pass the beading wire back through the crimp bead.

Pull the beading wire so the crimp rests snug against the French wire leaving approximately 1/4 inch of beading wire on the end. Crimp the crimp bead then trim the excess from the short end of the beading wire.
STEP 4
String the following onto the beading wire:
  • One purple and gold 4mm round
  • One purple and gold 6mm round
  • One 7x4mm flower bead cap
  • One metallic gold AB 8mm round
  • One 7x4mm flower bead cap

  • One 7x4mm flower bead cap
  • One purple and gold 8mm round
  • One 7x4mm flower bead cap

  • One turquoise blue 6mm round
  • One 7x4mm flower bead cap
  • One metallic gold AB 8mm round
  • One two-tone clear AB and metallic amber gold 8mm round
STEP 5
Continue to string the following onto the beading wire in the pattern of your choice, stringing one 7x4mm flower bead cap on either side of every other bead.
  • Three metallic gold AB 8mm rounds
  • Five turquoise blue 8mm rounds
  • Four purple and gold 8mm rounds
  • Four two-tone clear AB and metallic amber gold 8mm rounds
STEP 6
Continue to string the loop from the druzy focal.

  • Six turquoise blue 8mm rounds
  • Three metallic gold AB 8mm rounds
  • Three two-tone clear AB and metallic amber gold 8mm rounds
  • Four purple and gold 8mm rounds
Repeat Step 4 in the opposite direction then repeat Step 3 to string the second half of the necklace.
STEP 7
Connect eight 6mm twisted jumpring to create a chain. Use one 4mm jumpring to connect one hand with henna design charm to the last jumpring on one end.

Using one 4mm jumpring connect the last ring on the opposite end to one end of the necklace. Using one 4mm jumpring connect one lobster claw clasp to the opposite end of the necklace.
