Step by Step

1

Place 5 Mother of Pearl Ovals and 4 Gemstone ovals onto individual eye pins. Turn a loop at the end of each. (To turn the loop bend the plain end of the eye pin at right angles to the bead, trim to about 1cm with flush cutters and then turn the wire back on itself to form a loop using round nosed pliers)

2

Thread a pearl, shell and finally pearl on each of eight more eye pins. Turn a loop at the end of each.

3

Pick out 16 circle toggle ends and start to put together the main long beaded strand of the necklace as follows, attaching each element together with a jump ring: Mother of pearl oval – toggle – pearl and shell strand - toggle – Gemstone oval – toggle – pearl and shell strand – toggle…. And continue from the beginning of the pattern until all beads and toggles are used.

4

Cut 10 lengths of chain from the small chain included in the starter packs as follows – 6 lengths of 38 links and 4 lengths of 16 links.

5

Connect two of the longer lengths with two of the shorter lengths by three interlinked jump rings. At the end of the shorter lengths attach two more long lengths. Continue, alternating shorter lengths with longer lengths until all chain is used up.

6

Attach a jump ring to each end of the beaded strand and use this attach the chain lengths to each end so that it sits slightly shorter in the centre of the design.

7

Finally add a double length of chain to the top of the design so that it is your desired length.

8

Wear either on its own or layer with other designs to create your own unique style.

Hi there! My earliest memory of crafting is sitting with my Nan embroidering when I was tiny. Since then I’ve enjoyed cross-stitch, knitting, & a multitude of paper-crafting techniques. I have been making cards for years but really became hooked when I was introduced to heat embossing. I’ve been addicted to paper, brads, ribbon, stamps, beads, wire…. ever since! I’m really looking forward to meeting you to show you what you can achieve with all the wonderful products available to you!
