Tape the end of the cable, so your beads do not slide off. For a 16 inch necklace, string one silver bead and fifty seed beads on to the cable.
String one 3mm crystal, one resin flower, one 3mm crystal and ten seed beads on to the cable. Repeat this sequence six more times. String forty seed beads and one silver bead on to the cable.
String one crimp, one cable guard and the clasp on to one end. Seat the clasp on the cable guard. Run the beading cable back through the crimp and the last bead. Crimp the crimp. Trim the cable.
