Instructions

Finished Size: 19 1/4"

Step 1: Use 6" of 26 gauge wire to form a wire-wrapped bail on the red stick pearl. Set aside.

Step 2: Use 2" of 20 gauge wire to form a head pin. Use the head pin to string one 8mm x 6mm amber rondelle. Form a wire-wrapped loop. Use 2" of 20 gauge wire to form a wire-wrapped loop that attaches to the previous loop. String the 12mm x 7mm black rondelle and form a wire-wrapped loop. Use 2" of 20 gauge wire to form a wire-wrapped loop that attaches to the previous loop. String the silver rondelle and form a wire-wrapped loop. Use 2" of 20 gauge wire to form a wire-wrapped loop that attaches to the previous loop. String 1 red rondelle and form a wire-wrapped loop. Set aside.

Step 3: Use 8" of 20 gauge wire to form a wire-wrapped loop that attaches to one 8mm x 6mm black rondelle. String the skull bead (bottom to top) and one 6mm x 4mm black rondelle. Form a wire-wrapped loop. Set aside.



Step 4: Use 8" of 20 gauge wire to form a large wire-wrapped loop that attaches to the wrapped loops formed in Steps 1 through 3. String the brass fluted round and form a wire-wrapped loop. Set aside.

Step 5: Use 24" of beading wire to string 1 crimp tube, one 8mm x 6mm amber rondelle, one 6mm x 4mm black rondelle, and one 8mm x 6mm amber rondelle. Pass back through the tube and crimp.



Step 6: String 2 crimp covers/spacers, thirty-four 6mm x 4mm black rondelles, one 8mm x 6mm amber rondelle, one 8mm x 6mm black rondelle, one 8mm x 6mm amber rondelle, one 8mm x 6mm black rondelle, 1 red rondelle, one 8mm x 6mm amber rondelle, one 8mm x 6mm black rondelle, one 8mm x 6mm amber rondelle, one 8mm x 6mm black rondelle, one 8mm x 6mm amber rondelle, one 10mm x 7mm black rondelle, 1 red rondelle, one 12mm x 8mm amber rondelle, and one 6mm x 4mm black rondelle.



Step 7: String the pendant set aside in Step 4. Repeat Step 6, reversing the stringing sequence.



Step 8: String 1 crimp tube. Pass the wire back through the tube, leaving a loop of wire large enough to secure around the loop of beads formed in Step 1. Crimp the crimp tube.
