Magnolia Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cheri Carlson

Like a breeze in the trees, this necklace features leaves that dangle beautifully! The delicate leaf pendants are the perfect complement to the Czech glass beads and Miyuki seed beads. This necklace is easy to make with the instructions provided below!

Step one:
Cut a 6-inch length of 22 gauge Silver Artbeads Designer Wire. Attach one end to a 27mm matte silver-plated pewter leaf pendant by creating a wrapped loop. String two Czech glass 6x9mm blue and green with Picasso finish faceted roundel beads onto the wire. Make a wrapped loop at the top of the beads and attach a sterling silver 4.05mm open jump ring to the loop. For help opening and closing jump rings, please see our Handy Tip Video. Repeat this step once more. Repeat again, only this time add three blue and green Czech glass beads to the wire before making a wrapped loop. Set aside.

Step two:
Cut a length of jewelry wire approximately 24 inches long. String a sterling silver 2x2mm crimp tube onto the strand. Bring the wire through a sterling silver 3.90mm open jump ring and then back through the crimp tube. Crimp in place and then cover with a sterling silver 3mm sandblasted crimp cover. For help with crimp covers, please see our Handy Tip.

Step three:
Add about a 5 1/2-inch length of Miyuki 8/0 round seed beads in Duracoat galvanized light pewter to the strand. Then, add five Miyuki 11/0 round seed beads in opaque gunmetal iris, followed by a Czech glass 3x5mm turquoise with Picasso finish faceted roundel bead and five more 11/0 seed beads. Add a 1 1/2-inch section of 8/0 seed beads, then add five 11/0 seed beads, a 3x5mm roundel and five more 11/0 seed beads. Add ten 8/0 seed beads to the strand.

Step four:
Add a 6x9mm roundel to the strand. Then, add an 8/0 seed bead and one of the short leaf dangles. Add another 8/0 seed bead, followed by a 6x9mm roundel and another 8/0 seed bead. Add the long leaf dangle to the strand, followed by another 8/0 seed bead, a 6x9mm roundel and an 8/0 seed bead. Add the last short leaf dangle, followed by an 8/0 seed bead and a 6x9mm roundel. Make a mirror image of the bead pattern from step three on the other side of the necklace.

Step five:
String a crimp tube onto the wire, followed by a 3.90mm jump ring. Bring the wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place. Cover the crimp with a crimp cover. Attach the 925/10 silver-filled 4.3x11.85mm lobster clasp to one end of the necklace using the included jump ring. Attach the sterling silver 5mm medium closed jump ring to the other end of the necklace.
