An elegant necklace with cubic Swarovski Crystals and Gold Plated Beads
This 24 inch necklace includes three different shades of
cubic crystals with a gold highlight. The beads are a bit more expensive, but this
necklace is classy enough to wear with your little black dress.
10 each jet black, crystal AB and padparadscha beads
41 black 4mm druks
30 gold plated 4mm stardust beads
2 bead tips
2 jump rings
1 lobster claw clasp
1 twisted wire beading needle
110 inches black size 2 nylon beading cord
Prepare the cord by doubling it through the twisted
wire needle. Knot the cord at the end, glue
and cut off ends. String one of the bead tips
and then string the beads using the following
pattern until all beads are strung. Use the
Tri-Cord Knotter to place a knot between each bead.
Finish with the second bead tip and attach the clasp.
String a black druk and a gold stardust bead. Repeat 5 more times, string one more black druk.
Then follow this pattern until all cubic crystals have been strung:
padparadscha cube, jet cube, padparadscha cube
black druk, gold stardust bead, black druk, gold stardust bead, black druk
Repeat this pattern alternating the padparadscha cubes with the crystal AV cubes.
Once all of the cubic crystals have been strung alternate the black and gold stardust beads,
starting and finishing with a black druk, until all of the remaining beads have been strung.
