Single-Strand Necklace with Swarovski Crystal Beads and Nylon Cord

STEP 1
Using the flush-cutters, cut a 36-inch length of crystal FireLine® thread. String a beading needle on one end of the thread.
STEP 2
Measure 2-inches down the length of the silver braided cord. Pass the thread around one of the strands of silver braided cord on the outer edge of the cord. Make a surgeon's knot on the end of the thread to hold it in place. Place a small amount of gel adhesive to secure the knot (optional).
STEP 3
String onto the beading thread three, 3mm round crystal silver shade crystals. Loop the thread back around the center strand of silver braided cord.

Pass the thread through the strand of braided cord to the right of the loop (weave from the inside to outside of the cord) of three, 3mm round crystal silver shade crystals.

String onto the thread one 4mm round Indian sapphire crystal. Pass the thread through the strand of braid under of the loop of three, 3mm round crystal silver shade crystals.

String onto the thread one 4mm round Indian sapphire crystal. Pass the thread through the strand of braid to the right (weave from the outside to inside of the cord) of the loop of three, 3mm round crystal silver shade crystals.
STEP 4
Repeat Step 3 seventy-six times for a total of seventy-seven sets adding FireLine® thread as needed to extend the thread.
STEP 5
After the last set of three, 3mm round crystal silver shade crystals, loop the thread back around the center strand of the silver braided cord and tie a surgeon's knot around the thread. Place a small amount of gel adhesive to secure the knot.
