Necklace

STEP 1
Cut a 22-inch length of Accu-Flex® professional-quality beading wire.

String the large hole on one half of a magnetic barrel clasp onto a 2-inch headpin, create a wrapped loop then add a 4mm jumpring to the loop.

Repeat with the second half of the clasp.
STEP 3
String onto the length of beading wire: one crimp, one Accu-Guard™ wire protector and the jumpring added to one half of the clasp. 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.

String onto the beading wire:
  • 21 silver-plated brass 5x3mm ovals
  • 30 sets of one white 4mm pearl-coated druk and one iris blue 8x2mm tee
  • One white 4mm pearl coated druk
  • 21 silver-plated brass 5x3mm ovals
STEP 5
Repeat Step 3 with the second half of the clasp to complete the necklace.
