Jewelry Making Instructions


Step 1
Make One Large Bead Dangle
String the large bead cap and the 20mm to 25mm teardrop shaped bead onto the 1 1 1/2” (3.8cm) head pin and make the first half of a wrapped wire loop. Slide the ring of one small leaf charm into the wire loop. Make the second half of the wrapped wire loop.

Step 2
Cut one 24 inch ( cm) length .014 beading wire. String the bead dangle made in Step 1 onto the beading wire and center it.

Step 3
On one side of the bead dangle, string the beads in the following pattern: (To make it easier to follow the pattern, I have split the sequence into sections.)

Section 1: 1 metal coin shaped bead,

Section 2: 1 6mm or 8mm round crystal bead, 1 medium bead cap, 1 15mm - 20mm full oval shape bead, 1 medium bead cap;

Section 6: 1 6mm or 8mm round crystal bead, 1 metal coin shaped bead, 1 6mm or 8mm round crystal bead,

Section 7: 1 3mm or 4mm flat metal spacer bead, 1 15mm - 20mm flat oval shape bead, 1 3mm or 4mm flat metal spacer bead,

Section 8: 1 6mm or 8mm round crystal bead, 1 metal coin shaped bead, 1 6mm or 8mm round crystal bead,

Section 9: 1 3mm or 4mm flat metal spacer bead, 1 15mm - 20mm flat oval shape bead, 1 3mm or 4mm flat metal spacer bead,

Section 10: 1 6mm or 8mm round crystal bead, 1 medium bead cap, 1 15mm - 20mm full oval shape bead, 1 medium bead cap, 1 6mm or 8mm round crystal bead

Section 11: 5 metal coin shaped beads

Step 4
String the same pattern of beads on the second half of the beading wire to complete the necklace.

Step 5
On one end of the wire string one crimp and one half of the toggle clasp. String the end of the beading wire back through the crimp bead and a one or two of the flat coin shaped beads.
Pull on the end of the beading wire to draw the beads tightly against the toggle clasp and crimp the crimp beads.

Place a crimp cover over the crimped crimp bead if desired.

Step 6
Repeat Step 5 for the second end of the beading wire.

You’re done making this bead necklace!
