Necklace

STEP 1
Cut one 24-inch length of Accu-Flex professional-quality beading wire.
STEP 2
String onto one length of beading wire: one crimp and one Accu-Guard™ wire protector. Pass the beading wire back through the crimp. Pull the beading wire so the crimp rests snug against the Accu-Guard leaving approximately 1/4 inch of beading wire on the end. Crimp then trim the excess from the short end of the beading wire. Finish with a crimp cover.
STEP 3
String the following onto the beading wire:
  • 12 natural mother-of-pearl rounds
  • Eight indicolite AB 6mm rounds
  • One natural mother-of-pearl round
  • One indicolite AB 6mm round
  • Three sets of: one marble cone shell 27x10mm rectangle and one indicolite AB 6mm round
  • Ten white mother-of-pearl shell rounds
  • Eight mother-of-pearl 7x6mm triangular rectangles
  • Eight turquoise blue 8mm rounds
  • 11 nassa tiger shells
  • Six white mother-of-pearl 10x7mm ovals
  • Eight indicolite AB 6mm rounds
  • Nine natural mother-of-pearl rounds
Repeat Step 2 to secure the strand.
STEP 4
Use 6mm twisted jumprings to attach the lobster claw clasp to the Accu-Guard on one end of the strand. Attach one 6mm twisted jumpring to the opposite end of the strand.
