Bold Father's Day Necklace Instructions
Designed by Artbeads

Is your dad the type who likes to make a statement? Make this bold necklace for him this Father's Day.

Step one: Cut a length of ZambaPro™ 49 .024 jewelry wire to approximately 20 inches. Using a 2x2mm crimp tube, crimp one end to a swivel clasp. For instructions on how to crimp, please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.

Step two: Alternate wood tube beads and sterling silver roundels until you have nine of each. Add a large ornate Bali box bead and then reverse the pattern as you work toward the other end. At when you reach the end add a small silver round or another smaller holed roundel to prevent the crimp tube from sliding into the hole of the silver roundel. We used a heishi shell bead that we had leftover from another project.

Step three: Crimp the remaining wire to a sterling silver split ring and trim the excess.
