Instructions

Finished Size: 20 3/4"

Note: There are two holes in the four leaf closer beads/pendants: one through the center of the bead from one leaf point to the opposite leaf point (the bead hole) and one through the point of one leaf (the pendant hole).

Step 1: Use 3" of wire to string one 2mm crimp tube and the pendant hole of 1 four leaf clover bead/pendant; pass back through the tube. Use the other end of the wire to string 3 turquoise cushions; pass back through the tube. Snug both ends of the wire and crimp the tube. Cover the tube with a crimp cover. Repeat entire step twice.



Step 2: Place a bead stop on one end of 24" of beading wire. Use the other end of the wire to string one 2mm crimp tube and 1 turquoise rondelle. *String {1 turquoise cushion and 1 turquoise rondelle} three times. String the bead hole of 1 four leaf clover and 1 turquoise rondelle. Repeat from * three times, omitting the final four leaf clover and rondelle. String one 2mm crimp tube.

Step 3: Center all the beads in the wire. Pass the very ends of two 18" pieces of beading wire through the first crimp tube strung. Crimp the tube, but do not cut any wires. Repeat for the other half of the necklace.



Step 4: Use 1 wire end to string {1 turquoise rondelle and one 1mm crimp tube} five times. String 1 turquoise rondelle. Place a bead stop on the end of the wire.

Step 5: Use 1 wire to string {one 1mm crimp tube and 1 turquoise rondelle} six times. Place a bead stop on the end of the wire. Repeat entire step for using the third wire.

Step 6: Remove bead stops. Use all three wires to string one 2mm crimp tube. Place the tube 6 3/4" from the previous 2mm crimp tube, and crimp. Cut two of the wires. Cover the tube with a crimp cover. Use the remaining wire to string one 2mm crimp tube and one half of the clasp; pass back through the tube and crimp. Cover the tube with a crimp cover.

Step 7: Place the necklace on a flat work surface. Arrange the beads so that they're all in different spots along the wire. Use chain-nose pliers to flatten the crimp tubes to keep the turquoise rondelles in place.



Step 8: Repeat Steps 4-7 for the other half of the necklace.
