step 1 Tape one end of your beading cable, so your beads do not slide off the end. Randomly string the Czech glass beads using the size 8 seed beads as spacers. Tip - you may want to use the bigger beads in the front of the necklace.
step 2 When you have reached the desired length, string one crimp tube, one cable guard and the jumpring on to the cable. Seat the jumpring on the cable guard. Run the beading cable back through the crimp tube and the last bead. Crimp the crimp tube. Trim the end of the cable.
step 3 String one crimp tube, one cable guard and the clasp on to the cable. Seat the clasp on the cable guard. Run the beading cable back through the crimp tube and the last bead. Pull on the cable to remove any slack between the beads. Crimp the crimp tube. Trim the end of the cable.
