INSTRUCTIONS

The Pattern:

(you'll need this for most of the necklace)

  • a large star bead cap
  • a 10mm round white/maroon flower ceramic bead
  • a large star bead cap
  • a 3mm plain metal bead
  • a Elm Leaf Metal Bead
  • a 3mm plain metal bead
  • a 6mm Swarovski Bicone (we used Fuchsia)
  • a 3mm plain metal bead
  • a Elm Leaf Metal Bead
  • a 3mm plain metal bead

Make sure that the Elm Leaf Metal Beads are threaded on so the the tip of the leaf is always closest to the Swarovski Bicone.

The main part of the necklace:

Take the piece of tigertail and thread through a small crimp, then through a wire protector. Thread back through the crimp, pull up tightly and squish down. Cut off any excess tigertail. Place a crimp cover around the squashed crimp and gently squish into a round ball with your pliers to hide the crimp.

Next, thread on the pattern (as above at the top) 6 times so that you have a total of 6 x 10mm Round White/Maroon Flower Ceramic Beads on your strand.

Finally, finish by threading on:

  • a large star bead cap
  • a 10mm Round White/Maroon Flower Ceramic Bead
  • a large star bead cap

Finally thread on a small crimp and a wire protector, then back through the small crimp. Pull up tightly (but leave enough space to put another crimp cover over the crimp) and squish down the small crimp. Cut off any excess tigertail. Place a crimp cover around the squashed crimp and gently squish into a round ball with your pliers to hide the crimp.

Open up the last link on one of your pieces of chain and thread it through the loop in the wire protector. Close the chain link securely. Repeat on the other side of your necklace with the second piece of chain.

Open up the last link on one of the pieces of chain and attach a parrot clasp through the small loop and close securely.

Your necklace is now ready to wear!

*Please note this pattern makes a 60cm necklace, simply add more or less chain to make your necklace longer or shorter*
