This necklace has a warm tropical feel with its deep blue-green emerald tones and gold TierraCast findings. Picture a secluded island with a pleasant glowing lagoon in the tropical golden sun. The gold findings are so beautifully detailed that this necklace could be worn showing off the clasp and findings in the front.
1 hank size 8 blue-green opaque Czech seed beads
2 gold TierraCast hammered base metal cones
1 antique gold TierraCast classic base metal toggle clasp
2 3mm corrugated round gold base metal beads
2 2.5-inch sections of 20 gauge round gold German craft wire
6 1-yard sections of size #1 white Stringth bead cord
1 size 12 flexible twisted steel beading needle
You will need either Hypo Cement or clear nail polish, which is not included in the kit.
step 1 Using one yard of the Stringth and the wire needle, string on one full strand of beads from the hank to create 6 separate strands. Make sure there is extra thread on each end of the bead strands for later. Create a tight overhand knot on both ends so that all the beads are close to the knot.
step 2 On the end of both gold German wire sections, create a wire twist with a very tiny loop.
