Instructions

Step 1: Cut three strands of Green Soft Flex Wire from the spool, in the following lengths: 20”, 6”, and 8”.

Step 2: Taking the longest length of wire, string beads in the following order: 1 Czech Glass Knot, 1 Squaredelle, 1 Czech Glass Knot, 1 Squaredelle, 1 Czech Glass Knot (in the opposite direction as the first two), 1 Squaredelle, and one more Czech Glass Knot in the same direction as the third. The Czech Glass beads should look like arrows, the two on the right pointing to the right, and the two on the left pointing to the left. Center these beads on the wire and secure on each side using a 2x2mm Gold Filled Crimp and Crimping Pliers. Click here for crimping instructions. This will now be strand A of your design.

Step 3: Measuring 1½ inches from the last crimp, secure a 2x2mm crimp on each side of the design using Crimping Pliers. String 1 Czech Glass Knot (with “Arrow“ pointing towards the crimp), 1 - Squaredelle, and 1 - Czech Glass Knot with “Arrow“ pointing opposite the first. It would be best to lay the design down on the bead board for the remaining steps.

Step 4: Next, take the 6“ length of wire. String a 2x2mm crimp on your longest length, next to the beads you just strung in Step 3. Before crimping, slip the 6“ length of wire into the crimp as well, and secure using crimping pliers. Trim off any excess wire at the crimp using Flush Cutters. You should start to see that your necklace is now forming into a two strand necklace in the front. This second length will be strand B of your design.

Step 5: String another crimp onto the strand B, and secure using crimping pliers about 1“ from the last crimp.

Step 6: String 1 Czech Glass Knot, with the “Arrow“ pointing towards the crimp, 1 – Squaredelle, and 1 – Czech Glass Knot with the “Arrow“ pointing opposite the first. String a crimp onto the wire and secure using crimping pliers right next to the last bead.

Step 7: Measuring 1“ from the last crimp, secure another crimp on the wire using crimping pliers.

Step 8: Now repeat step 6.

Step 9: Bring the end of your strand B together with strand A, and string both strands through a 2x2mm crimp and secure using crimping pliers right next to the last beads on strand A.

Step 10: Repeat step 3 on strand A.

Step 11: Repeat step 4, using the last length of wire cut from the spool. This is now strand C.

Step 12:
On Strand C, measure about 3” from the crimp and secure a crimp using crimping pliers.

Step 13: Repeat the beads strung in step 2 here.

Step 14: Now, bring strand C together with strand A and string both strands through a 2x2mm crimp and secure using crimping pliers right next to the last beads on strand A. You should now have a three strand design in the front, with only one strand in the back.

Step 15: Repeat step 3 on each side of the design.

Step 16: About 1” from the last crimp, string the wire through a 2x2mm crimp, through one end of the toggle and back through the crimp. Secure using crimping pliers, and trim off excess wire using Flush Cutters.

Step 17: Repeat step 16 on the other end of the design.
