Necklace

STEP 1
Cut two 12-inch lengths of Accu-Flex® professional-quality beading wire and one 6-inch length of Wrapit® 24-gauge half-hard round wire.

Tassel

STEP 2
Using the Beadalon® Tassel Maker, create a tassel approximately 2 inches long and 1/4 inch thick using green nylon #10 thread. Attach one 16x8mm hammered cone and one emerald 4mm round to the end of the tassel using the 6-inch length of Wrapit wire. Form a wrapped loop.

Tip: View the ''How to Use the Beadalon® Tassel Maker'' how-to video and illustrated instructions for more information on creating the tassel and adding a cone to the end.

String onto the 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.

  • Four sets of:
    • One emerald 4mm bicone

STEP 6
Repeat Steps 3 - 5 to create a second strand.
STEP 7
Use 6mm jumprings to attach the tassel to the open center of each leaf charm.

Earrings

STEP 1
String onto a 1-inch eyepin: one emerald 4mm bicone, one silver-plated brass 5mm smooth round and one emerald 4mm bicone. Form a simple loop.
