Alexis Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cheri Carlson

Amoracast eternity design frames allow for amazing possibilities in your jewelry! Cheri created a fun look with the help of Swarovski pearls, TOHO Demi rounds, and 11/0 seed beads. The result is a modern look with beads at every turn!

Step one:
Slide a Swarovski 4mm Ivory round pearl onto a 1.5-inch silver-plated 23 gauge head pin, followed by a TOHO Demi round 8/0 bead in matte-color dark copper. Slide the head pin through the bottom center hole on the Amoracast sterling silver Zen rectangle eternity design frame. Add a TOHO 11/0 bead round in semi-glazed lemongrass and make a wrapped loop.

Step two:
Add a Swarovski 4mm round pearl in Coral to a head pin, followed by a Demi round seed bead. Slide the head pin into the hole three holes over from the Ivory pearl in the center of the frame. Add a lemongrass seed bead and then make a wrapped loop. Repeat on the other side of the center Ivory pearl. Then, repeat three holes over on both sides.

Step three:
Slide a 4mm Ivory pearl onto a head pin and attach it to one of the Coral pearl head pins on the frame by creating a wrapped loop. Repeat for all of the Coral pearl head pins.

Step four:
Add a Demi round seed bead to a head pin, followed by a Swarovski 8mm round pearl in Coral, a 4mm Ivory pearl, and a lemongrass seed bead. Attach it to the center Ivory pearl in the frame by creating a wrapped loop.

Step five:
Slide a head pin into the hole in the top corner of the frame. Slide an Ivory pearl onto the head pin and attach a half-inch length of silver-plated double rollo chain to the head pin by creating a wrapped loop. Repeat on the other corner of the frame.

Step six:
Cut a length of 24 gauge silver Artbeads Designer Wire. Attach one end to the rollo chain on one end of your necklace by creating a wrapped loop. Slide on a lemongrass seed bead, a Demi round seed bead, a Swarovski 5mm round pearl in Coral, a Demi round seed bead, and a lemongrass seed bead. Repeat on the other side of the necklace.

Step seven:
Cut a 15 3/4-inch length of chain and attach it to the Artbeads Designer Wire link by creating a wrapped loop at the end of the beads. Repeat on the other side of the necklace.

Step eight:
Attach a 9x5mm silver-plated trigger clasp to one end of the necklace using a sterling silver 2.3mm open jump ring. For help opening and closing jump rings, please see our Handy Tip Video. Attach a 925/10 silver-filled 5mm 22 gauge closed jump ring to the other end using another 2.3mm open jump ring.
