Since many of you commented on the necklace pictured with a pair of my earrings---here are more of that style necklace, along with a tutorial!!

Pictures:






Now, these are made as 13" chokers but could easily be sized larger or even down to a bracelet!

My paint skills are extremely lacking, so I've tried to word this as best as possible.

~~Tutorial~~

Materials:
2 30" pieces of beading wire
Lots of Delicas(or other 11/0 seed beads)
3mm swarovski bicones
4mm swarovski bicones
4 small spacer beads
clasps/jump ring
crimp beads


1.Take both piece of beading wire, fold each in half and crimp onto jump ring, creating 4 strands(leave the loops a bit loose)

2.First string a spacer bead, 1 per set of strands.

3.String 19 delica beads onto each strand.

4.Take the first 2 strands(1 wire) and cross through a 3mm swarovski, repeat with other wire.

5.Now, take the outide strands and string a 4mm swarovski on each. Then take the 2 middle strands and string a 4mm swarovski.

6.Take the 2 left strands, and cross through a 3mm swarovski. Repeat with the right.

7. Now just repeat steps 3-6 until you have 10 clusters of swarovskis.

8. To finish, string 19 delica beads on each strand. Than string 1 spacer bead on each set of wires. Now just crimp onto the clasp, and it's done!

I was SO excited to wake up this morning and see this post! I, too, had noticed the lovely necklace next to the earrings, and wished for a tutorial.

I'm cutting some beading wire right now and choosing some beads to practice with.

I hope one day mine can look half as good as yours!

Are you available for questions, should I run into a snag?

Many thanks,
~CD~

You should do great! They're actually quite simple once you get the hang of it. I'll be popping in and out of here, so if you have any questions just ask!

What a great set! And, the directions for your tutorial are very clear (and even more clear once you actually do it!). These will whip together quickly and I can make a bunch as gifts. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks SO much for posting a tutorial for this lovely piece! I'm working on the choker right now. It's not as hard as I thought it would be, given your great directions!

Appreciatively,
~CD~

p.s. Do you suppose firewire would work as well as beading wire? I might try that next time if you think it would work.

Hey. I wonder if making the top loops and the bottom loops in different (but cooridinating) colors might look cool!

Again, thanks SO much for your tutorial.

I was looking for a necklace to make for my grandmother (as a peace offering...long story...LOL), and I think this one will be just perfect.

Appreciatively,
~CD~

Crazydoc--yours is looking great!

Definitely play with the colors. I like to use different color swarovskis, don't see why you couldn't do it with the seed beads too  Grin
