Instructions



Step 1: Cut the Soft Touch Wire, .010 diameter into nine pieces, one each of the following lengths: 2" (A), 2 1/2" (B), 3" (C), 3 1/2" (D), 4" (E), 4 1/2" (F), 5" (G), 5 1/2", (H), and 6" (I).

Step 2: Use the A wire to string 1 crimp tube. Pass back through the tube, forming a loop just large enough to fit around the .019 diameter wire. Repeat with all of the remaining .010 diameter wire pieces.

Step 3: Use the A wire to string about 5 Delicas, one 3mm accent bead, 5 Delicas and 1 crimp tube. Pass back through the tube, leaving a loop just large enough to string onto the .019 diameter wire, and crimp. Repeat step, using C and F wires to string a mix of Delicas and all remaining accent beads. Set aside.

Step 4: Use the B wire to string Delicas until there is about 3/4" of bare wire remaining. String 1 crimp tube. Pass back through the tube, leaving a loop just large enough to string onto the .019 diameter wire and crimp. Repeat step, using D, E, G, H, and I wires. Set aside.

Step 5: Attach one Bead Stopper to one end of the .019 diameter Soft Flex Wire. String 3 Delicas, one end of I wire, 1 Delica, one end of H wire, 1 Delica, one end of G wire, 1 Delica, one end of F wire, 1 Delica, one end of E wire, 3 Delicas, one end of D wire, 1 Delica, one end of C wire, 1 Delica, one end of B wire, 1 Delica, and 1 end of A wire.

Step 6: String 6 Delicas. Repeat Step 5, reversing the stringing sequence.

Step 7: String one 2mm x 2mm crimp tube and one half of the clasp. Pass back through the tube and crimp. Remove the Bead Stopper and attach the other end of the wire to the other half of the clasp, making sure to adjust the wire so that the necklace is just longer than a choker, falling on your collarbone.
