Berry Breeze Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Breezy spring colors create a fresh presentation of style in this fabulous necklace. Cynthia was inspired by the fun colors featured in the JC Herrell bead at the center of the design. The Artbeads Designer Seed Bead Blend Cynthia chose is the perfect match for the Lampwork beauty, while Czech glass beads and Swarovski pearls complete the look. Learn the techniques used to make this necklace and then create your own color palette!

Step one:
String a sterling silver 3.25mm spacer disc onto a 3-inch 20 gauge sterling silver head pin, followed by a TierraCast antique silver 6mm beaded spacer, the JC Herrell pale aqua with aqua stripes glass baby berry bead, another TierraCast beaded spacer and another sterling silver spacer disc. Make a wrapped loop at the top of the head pin. Learn how to make wrapped loops here.

Step two:
Cut three lengths of jewelry wire each approximately seven inches long. Slide a sterling silver 3x3mm crimp tube onto the ends of all three wires and then slide the ends through the loop of a 2-inch silver-plated 20 gauge eye pin. Bring the ends back through the crimp tube and crimp in place. For help crimping, please see our Handy Tip.

Step three:
Add a two-inch section of beads from the Monet's Garden Designer Seed Bead Blend to each strand of jewelry wire. Then, slide your berry bead pendant over all three wires. Add a two-inch section of beads from the Seed Bead Blend to each wire on the other side of the pendant. Crimp the other ends of the wires together in the same manner as you did in step two.

Step four:
Slide a JBB 6mm antique sterling silver hammered end cap onto the eye pin on one end of the jewelry wires so that it fits over some of the beads. Add a seed bead to the eye pin and then make a wrapped loop at the top of the bead. Repeat this step on the other end of the jewelry wire.

Step five:
Add a TierraCast spacer bead to an eye pin, followed by a Swarovski 6mm round crystal pearl in Iridescent Purple and another spacer bead. Make a simple loop at the end of the pattern. For help constructing simple loops, please see our Handy Tip. Repeat five times. String a Monet's Garden seed bead onto an eye pin, followed by a Czech glass 8mm opaline green blue with Picasso finish faceted round bead and another seed bead. Make a simple loop at the end of the pattern. Repeat 17 times.

Step six:
Open the loop on one of the Iridescent Purple links and attach it to the loop on the end of the jewelry wire strands. Close the loop to secure it in place. Following the same technique, add links together in this order:
  • Three Czech glass links
  • One Iridescent Purple link
  • Three Czech glass links
  • One Iridescent Purple link
  • Three Czech glass links
Attach half of the JBB antique silver-plated pewter three flower toggle clasp to the last link added using a sterling silver 4.60mm jump ring. Repeat this step for the other side of the necklace.
