Instructions

Finished Size: 7 1/4"

Step 1: Use 11" of beading wire to string 1 crimp tube and the first loop of one half of the clasp. Pass back through the crimp tube and crimp. Cover the crimp tube with a crimp cover.

Step 2: String 1 mossy green round and the first hole of 1 spacer tube. String {3 green swirl rondelles, the first hole of 1 spacer tube, 2 mossy green rounds, and the first hole of 1 spacer tube} twice. String 1 green swirl rondelle. Place a Bead Stopper on the wire. Set aside.

Step 3: Repeat Step 1 using the second loop of the same half of the clasp.

Step 4: String 1 navy blue rondelle and the middle hole of the first spacer tube used in Step 2. String 2 navy blue rounds and the middle hole of the next spacer tube. String 3 navy blue rondelles and the middle hole of the next spacer tube. String 2 navy blue rounds and the middle hole of the next spacer tube. String 3 navy blue rondelles and the middle hole of the next spacer tube. String 1 navy blue round. Place a Bead Stopper on the wire. Set aside.

String 2 pale green rounds and the third hole of the next spacer tube. String 1 opaque rondelle. Place a Bead Stopper on the wire. Set aside.



Step 7: Adjust the beads on all three strands so that they are spaced apart as shown.
