Single-Strand Necklace with Gunmetal-Plated Brass Focal and Beads, Swarovski Crystal and Glass Pearl Beads

STEP 1
Using flush-cutters, cut one 20-inch length of Accu-Flex® professional-quality beading wire.
STEP 2
String onto the beading wire one gold-filled 2x2mm crimp bead and one ring from the gunmetal-finished S-hook clasp. Pass the wire back through the crimp bead pulling the wire against the loop leaving a little room for movement. Place a small amount of adhesive inside the crimp (Loctite® optional). Using the crimping pliers, crimp the crimp bead. Using flush-cutters, trim the excess wire from the short end. Place a gold-plated stardust crimp cover over the crimp bead then gently close it.
STEP 3
String the following beads onto the beading wire:
  • One gunmetal-plated 4mm round bead
  • One gold-plated and Swarovski crystal AB 4mm rondelle bead
  • Fifty-three gunmetal-plated 4mm round beads
  • One gold-finished 6x1.5mm flower bead cap
  • One Swarovski crystal aurum 2X 8mm bicone bead
  • One gold-plated and Swarovski crystal AB 6mm rondelle bead
  • One pewter 10mm glass pearl bead
  • One gold-plated and Swarovski crystal AB 6mm rondelle bead
  • One Swarovski crystal aurum 2x 8mm bicone bead
  • One gold-finished 6x1.5mm flower bead cap
  • One gunmetal-plated 4mm round bead
  • One gold-finished 6x1.5mm flower bead cap
  • One Swarovski crystal 4mm aurum 2x bicone bead
STEP 4
Using chain-nose pliers and bent-nose pliers, open one gunmetal-colored aluminum 5.5mm jumpring and pass it through the loop on one gunmetal-finished 34mm flat round focal and the beading wire. Close the jumpring.
STEP 5
Continue stringing beads onto the beading wire in the opposite to the pattern in Step 3.
STEP 6
Repeat Step 2 to complete the second half of the necklace.
