MATERIALS REQUIRED

  • 2 x 80cm tigertail
  • 3 small crimps
  • 4 x 6mm strong jump rings
  • 2 spiky decorative large hole metal beads
  • 42 x 8mm flat round glass beads
  • 136 x 3mm plain metal balls
  • 24 x 6mm glass pearls
  • 18 x 8mm rondelle glass beads
  • 36 x 8mm oval glass beads
  • 1 parrot clasp

TOOLS REQUIRED

  • 2 pairs of Crimping Pliers
  • Wire Cutters

INSTRUCTIONS

Take your two pieces of tigertail and thread through a small crimp, then through one of the strong jump rings. Thread back through the crimp, pull up tightly and squish down. Cut off any excess tigertail. Thread one of the large hole spiky decorative metal beads over the two strands to hide the crimp.

Keeping the two strands together, thread on:

  • an 8mm flat round glass bead
  • a 3mm plain metal ball
  • a 6mm glass pearl bead
  • a 3mm plain metal ball

Repeat this pattern two more times, so that you have three glass pearls on your strand.

Split the two strands up, and thread five 3mm plain metal beads onto the first strand. Follow with:

  • an 8mm flat round glass bead
  • a 3mm plain metal ball
  • a 6mm glass pearl bead
  • a 3mm plain metal ball
  • an 8mm flat round glass bead
  • a 3mm plain metal ball
  • an 8mm oval glass bead
  • a 3mm plain metal ball
  • an 8mm rondelle glass bead
  • a 3mm plain metal ball
  • an 8mm oval glass bead
  • a 3mm plain metal ball

Repeat 7 more times, so that you have eight glass pearls on your strand. Finally, thread on:

  • an 8mm flat round glass bead
  • a 3mm plain metal ball
  • a 6mm glass pearl bead
  • a 3mm plain metal ball
  • an 8mm flat round glass bead

Finish by threading on five 3mm plain metal balls. To make sure everything doesn't fall off this strand whilst we are working on the other strand, thread a small crimp on the very end of the tigertail and squish down - this crimp will be cut off later, to complete the necklace, but in the meantime, it will ensure your hard work isn't lost.

Take the second strand and thread on five 3mm plain metal beads. Follow with:

  • an 8mm oval glass bead
  • a 3mm plain metal ball
  • an 8mm rondelle glass bead
  • a 3mm plain metal ball
  • an 8mm oval glass bead
  • a 3mm plain metal ball
  • an 8mm flat round glass bead
  • a 3mm plain metal ball
  • a 6mm glass pearl bead
  • a 3mm plain metal ball
  • an 8mm flat round glass bead
  • a 3mm plain metal ball

Repeat 8 more times, so that you have nine glass pearls on your strand. Finally, thread on:

  • an 8mm oval glass bead
  • a 3mm plain metal ball
  • an 8mm rondelle glass bead
  • a 3mm plain metal ball
  • an 8mm oval glass bead

Finish by threading on five 3mm plain metal beads. Cut the crimp off the very end of strand one and bring the two strands back together. Then thread on:

  • a 3mm plain metal ball
  • a 6mm glass pearl bead
  • a 3mm plain metal ball
  • an 8mm flat round glass bead

Repeat this pattern two more times, so that you have three glass pearls on your strand. Thread on your second large hole spiky decorative metal bead.

Thread through a small crimp, through a strong jump ring, then back through the small crimp. Pull up tightly and squish down the small crimp. Cut off any excess tigertail.

Open up one of the jump rings (as they are quite strong, you will need two pairs of pliers or a jump ring tool) and thread on the parrot clasp, close securely. Open up the jump ring on the other side of the necklace, and add a second jump ring. Repeat with the other two to create an extension chain. Your necklace is now ready to wear!
