Project Instructions

  • 1
    Cut a 24’’ piece of jewelry wire and string your assorted glass, gemstone, and Silver beads. Slide on the crimp tube, wire guardian, and 9 mm jump ring and crimp following the directions on the package. Cover with the crimp cover and squeeze closed using flat pliers, and then cut off any excess wire.
  • 2
    Cut an 18’’ piece of Silver chain and add the 12 mm jump rings to each end, keeping the rings open. Add the finished beaded layer, slipping the smaller jump ring over the large ones on the chain.
  • 3
    Cut an 12’’ piece of jewelry wire and string roughly 9” of 3.5mm Silver faceted beads. Finish off both ends by attaching 12 mm jump rings, keeping the rings open, and slipping the smaller jump rings over the larger ones on the Silver chain.
  • 4
    Slide one seed bead onto the headpin, and insert the headpin up through the bottom of the end bead in the macramé strand. Be sure the headpin is pulled all the way through. Bend the end into an eye loop and cut off any excess wire, and then repeat for the opposite end. Attach the last two 9 mm jump rings to the eye loop and then onto the larger, 12 mm jump rings. Close the jump rings and attach the lobster clasp to the ends of the Silver chain.
