Hoos Watching Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

This fun fall and winter necklace follows the season's new trend of rich teals and browns, borrowing a relaxed feel from nature. The Montana Sapphire Swarovski crystals combined with filigree and Picasso-patterned beads all come together to bring out the wonderful coloring in the cute lampwork focal piece, a whimsical symbol of nature.

Step one:
String the TierraCast® 7mm brass oxide pewter plain heishi spacer then the Grace Lampwork black and ivory free style owl bead onto the sterling silver 22 gauge 3-inch head pin and finish with a wrapped loop technique. Cut your ZambaPro™ 49 .019 jewelry wire into one piece approximately 21 inches long using your nippers. String your owl pendant onto the wire and center it.

Step two:
String the following beads in this order on the left side of the pendant:

  • Three Swarovski 4mm faceted bicones in Caribbean Blue Opal AB

  • Three 6x8mm dark amber and opaque sky blue with Picasso roundel beads

  • One Kabela Design antique brass filigree bead

  • Three 6x8mm roundel beads

  • Three Swarovski 10mm faceted rounds in Montana Sapphire

  • Three 6x8mm roundel beads

  • One brass filigree bead

  • Three 6x8mm roundel beads

  • Nine Swarovski 10mm faceted rounds


Repeat this pattern on the right side of your pendant.

Step three:
Attach one portion of the JBB antique brass with small flowers and curls toggle clasp to one end of your jewelry wire using a 14K/20 gold-filled 2x2mm crimp tube. Repeat on the other end of your jewelry wire with the other portion of the toggle. For help with crimp tubes and using a bead crimper tool, visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.
