This earth-toned two-strand necklace is perfect for autumn! Begin by cutting two 2-foot lengths of SoftFlex®. Using both strands, string on one Bali spacer bead, a Bali cylinder bead, another Bali spacer bead, a 6mm twist bead, a Bali spacer bead, a Bali cylinder bead, and one more Bali spacer bead. Move these beads to the center of your necklace. Starting on either side of the necklace, using one strand string a 4mm light green pearl, a 4mm bronze pearl, a 4mm light green pearl, and a Bali spacer. Repeat two more times. With the other strand string the same pattern only this time start with a bronze pearl, then a light green pearl etc. When both strands have three repetitions of the pattern on them, string both strands through a 6mm twist bead, and you have the first section complete. Repeat the steps to make a total of four sections of the necklace. Repeat one more time, only this time leave out the 6mm twist bead at the end. String the other side of the necklace in the same way. Now it is time to finish the necklace. First, string a crimp bead over both strands, and crimp it. Cut one of the strands as close to the crimp as possible. String the remaining strand through a 4mm twist bead, another crimp tube, one side of the clasp and back through the crimp tube. Crimp, and trim the excess SoftFlex®. Repeat this with the other side of the necklace. The total length of this necklace comes to 23 inches.
