Instructions

Finished size: 25 1/2"



Step 1: Use 14" of Copper Soft Flex Craft Wire, folded in half and doubled, to form a wire wrapped loop. String the Coral round and form a wire wrapped loop. Set aside.

Step 2: Use 6" of Copper Soft Flex Craft Wire to string 1 crimp tube. Place the tube at the very end of the wire and crimp. Cover the crimp tube with a crimp cover. Use the other end of the wire to string 1 Pearl. Form a wire wrapped loop.

Step 3: Use 4" of Onyx wire to string 1 crimp tube. Place the tube at the very end of the wire and crimp. String 1 Black Tourmaline oval and 1 Coral bead. Pass through the wire wrapped loop formed in Step 2 and one of the wire wrapped loops formed in Step 1. Pass back through the wire wrapped loop formed in Step 1. String 1 Coral bead, 1 Black Tourmaline oval, and 1 crimp tube. Place the tube at the very end of the wire and crimp. Cover the crimp tube with a crimp cover.

Step 4: Repeat Step 3, using 5" of Coral wire.

Step 5: Repeat Step 3, using 6" of Copper wire.

Step 6: Cut 29" each of the Onyx, Coral, and Copper wire. Place one Bead Stopper at the center of the three wires. Use all three wires to string the other wire wrapped loop formed in Step 1 to the Bead Stopper.

Step 7: Use the Coral wire to string 1 crimp tube. Place the tube 3/4" from the center of the wires and crimp. Cover the crimp tube with a crimp cover. String 1 Black Tourmaline oval, 1 Pearl, 1 Black Tourmaline oval, and 1 crimp tube. Crimp the tube and cover with a crimp cover.



Step 8: Repeat Step 7, placing the first crimp tube 2" from the previous tube. Repeat entire step.

Step 9: Use the Coral wire to string 1 crimp tube and one half of the clasp. Pass back through the tube and crimp, wasting as little wire as possible. Cover the crimp tube with a crimp cover. Repeat to attach the Onyx and Copper wires to the same half of the clasp.

Step 10: Remove the Bead Stopper and repeat Steps 7-9 for the other half of the clasp.



Step 11: Attach one crimp cover around all three wires in six spots in order to keep the wires together at certain points on the necklace.
