Instructions

  1. Cut three 10” lengths of bead stringing wire. Holding the ends together, attach one half of the clasp with a crimp bead loop by stringing a crimp bead on the bead stringing wire 1/2” from the end. Place the end back into the crimp bead forming a loop. Flatten it closed with flat nose pliers.
  2. String half of the seed and bugle beads randomly onto each outside wire, alternate a 4mm bead with a leaf-shaped bead until all of the 4mm beads are used. String a crimp bead onto all three wires and flatten it closed at the end of the seed and bugle beads. Repeat for the other side of the necklace. Attach the other half of the clasp to all three wires with a crimp bead loop.
