Necklace

STEP 1
Cut the following lengths:
  • Two 10-inch lengths Accu-Flex® professional-quality beading wire
  • Two 1-1/2 inch lengths off-white 1mm leather cord
  • One 3-inch length red 3-4.5mm leather bola cord
STEP 2
Place one 7x6mm crimp with loop to one end of the length of red bola cord then crimp. String one Hemalyke™ 12x11mm round tube then attach a crimp to the opposite end of the cord.
STEP 3
Mix Devcon® 5-Minute® Epoxy according to manufacturer's instructions.

Apply a thin layer of epoxy around the center of the crimp. Place one end of one length of off-white leather cord at the top of the crimp channel then continue to wrap the cord around the entire center of the crimp. If necessary trim excess cord.

Repeat to attach leather cord to the second crimp. Allow the bola cord to set for approximately 5 minutes.
STEP 4
Place one 5x2.5mm crimp end with loop onto one end of the length of Accu-Flex beading wire then crimp.

String the following onto the beading wire:
  • One 4.5x2.5mm corrugated rondelle
  • One terra rosa jasper 6mm round
  • One 4.5x2.5mm corrugated rondelle
  • Two terra rosa jasper 6mm round

    • One 4.5x2.5mm corrugated rondelle
    • One terra rosa jasper 6mm round
    • One 4.5x2.5mm corrugated rondelle
    • Two terra rosa jasper 6mm round
  • One 5x2.5mm crimp end with loop
Pull the beading wire so the beads are snug then crimp. Trim excess wire from the end of the crimp end.
STEP 6
Repeat Step 5 to create a duplicate strand for the opposite side of the necklace.

Pass one 4mm jumpring through the loop one the end of the bola cord and the first crimp end (close to the riverstone 4mm round) on the end of the first strand.

Repeat to attach the second strand to the opposite end of the bola cord.
