First Strand

STEP 2
String onto one of the lengths of beading wire: one crimp and one length of French wire. Pass the beading wire back through the crimp. 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, then trim the excess from the short end of the beading wire. Finish with a 4mm crimp cover.
STEP 3
String one emerald green 6mm round and one 4x2mm smooth heishi onto the beading wire. Repeat this sequence to string 18 sets.

Continue to string one emerald green 6mm round.

Repeat Step 2 to secure the strand.

Second Strand

STEP 4
Repeat Step 2 using the remaining length of beading wire.

String the following onto the beading wire:
  • One yellow 4mm round
  • Repeat this sequence to string ten sets:
    • One 4x2mm smooth heishi
    • Three yellow 4mm rounds
  • One 4x2mm smooth heishi
  • One yellow 4mm round
Repeat Step 2 to secure the strand.

Third Strand

STEP 5
String one garnet red 6mm round onto one 1-inch eyepin then form a simple loop on the straight end of the wire.

Repeat to create a total of 10 garnet red links.
STEP 6
Using 7x5mm oval jumprings connect the 10 garnet red links creating a chain. Tip: The first and last garnet red links will have one simple loop that is not connected to the 7x5mm oval jumprings.
