Necklace

STEP 1
Cut a 24-inch length of Accu-Flex® professional-quality beading wire.
STEP 2
String onto the 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. Finish with a 4mm crimp cover.
STEP 3
String the following onto the beading wire:
  • Nine sets of one 4x2mm gold-plated heishi and one red 4mm round
  • One 4x2mm heishi
  • Six sets of one red 6mm round and one 5x2mm gold plated heishi
  • One 6mm round
  • Five sets of one 5x2mm rhinestone rondelle and one red 8mm round
  • Three sets of one 6x3mm rhinestone rondelle and one red 10mm round
  • Three sets of one 7x3mm rhinestone rondelle and one red 12mm round
  • One 8x4mm rondelle
String one red 14mm round then string the above sequence in reverse to complete the strand.
STEP 4
Add a crimp and Accu-Guard wire protector to the end of the beading wire, then complete with a crimp cover.
STEP 5
Use a 6x4mm jump ring to attach one half of a toggle clasp to one end of the beaded strand. Add a second jump ring parallel to the first to create a double jump ring connection.

Repeat to attach the second half of the clasp to the opposite end of the beaded strand.
