This beautiful necklace was featured in our Artbeads.com advertisement in several beading magazines. We are bringing the design to you so you can make it for yourself or friends. This necklace is a perfect bead box cleaner! We recommend components, but it can be made with any leftover beads and bits of chain you may have on hand.

Step one: Begin by creating the peyote stitch focal point for the center of the necklace. For step by step instructions on how to do peyote stitch, please Click Here. For instructions on how to finish this particular section with the silver beads and loops please Click Here. When you have completed this centerpiece, attach the laser-cut wood pendant using two open jump rings, surrounding the center silver bead of the peyote designs.

Step two: You should now have a completed centerpiece that includes a peyote stitched segment, the wood pendant and two Swarovski 4139 cosmic rings. Cut two 4-inch lengths of sterling silver large link oval chain. Attach one of these lengths to each cosmic ring using a large open jump ring.

Step three: Cut four 9-inch lengths of ZambaPro™ 49 .019 jewelry wire. Attach one more large sterling silver large open jump rings to each of the cosmic rings. Crimp two of the wires to each of those jump rings using 2x2mm sterling crimp tubes. Cover each crimp tube with a crimp cover. Begin on one side of the necklace and when you have completed that side, repeat the following steps on the other side.

Step four: String 1 ½ inches of random small beads on both wires. These beads will include silver rounds and spacers as well as crystals, pearls, gemstones and beadcaps. Run both wires through a Swarovski silver and crystal roundelle and then through a 12mm Swarovski smoked topaz polygon bead and another spacer. Separate the wires again and add another two inches of beads.

Step five: Run both wires through the last link of silver chain and add a sterling silver retro cone pulling it snuggly around the three strands. If you have bigger beads under the cone that are making it fit improperly, pull a couple of beads off and replace with smaller items. On the other side of the cone, put both wires through alternating 4mm cube raku Toho beads and sterling silver 4mm oval beads until you have six of each. Add a 3x3mm crimp tube and attach the two strands to the center loop of the toggle clasp. Remember, you will need a Mighty Crimper for this size crimp tube. Repeat steps four and five on the other side of your necklace and you are done! If you are having trouble with peyote stitch, we recommend this book, Beading with Peyote Stitch.
