Lipstick Goddess Necklace Instructions
Designed by Artbeads

Mother Nature gives a face and a voice to all natural elements that cannot see or speak. Let the beauty of earth, fire and water share a place in your fashion with this lovely necklace. The warm copper, organic rusted iron and cool turquoise components come together as one to bring balance to this design.

Step one:
Cut one piece of jewelry wire approximately 27 inches long. Cut one piece of brown ultra micro fiber suede approximately 30 inches long. Measure out the Swarovski smoked topaz suede yarn approximately 24 inches long. Keep the ends of the suede yarn taped to prevent the thread from un-raveling. You will be crimping this tape and all, later.

Step two:
Weave the suede cord loosely through the links of the antique copper-plated cable chain. You will need to stitch the last link on each side to the micro suede using Nymo D in brown to prevent the chain from slipping.

Step three:
String one 4mm turquoise Druk bead and one 4mm burn orange Druk bead onto the wire. Repeat this nine times.

Step four:
String one 8mm turquoise piccasso druk bead, one burnt orange druk bead, one turquoise druk bead and another burnt orange druk bead onto the wire. Repeat this ten more times. Followed by one 8mm Turquoise druk, one burnt orange druk, two 4mm turquoise druks, then one burnt orange and finally one 8mm turquoise druk.

Step five:
String the remainder in a mirror image starting with one burnt orange druk, two turquoise druks and so on. Once all the beads are strung, crimp with the TierraCast antique copper 2X2mm crimps on each end. See our Handy Tip video on how to use crimp tubes for more help.

Step six:
Attach one end of each strand to one JBB 4mm antique copper-plated brass fancy crimp end cap with loop. Read our Handy Tip on how to use an end cap if you need help. Attach the other ends to a second end cap. Trim any excess micro suede.

Step seven:
Attach two 8mm copper-plated 18 gauge open jump rings to the Lipstick Ranch rusted iron goddess with open arms pendant. Watch our Handy Tip video if you need help with how to open and close a jump ring. Connect it to the center of the beaded wire strand.

Step eight:
Connect four TierraCast medium oval copper open jump rings together to form a chain. Attach one end to the bar portion of the antique copper-plated pewter large diamond-shaped toggle clasp and the other end to a single 8mm open jump ring. Connect this 8mm jump ring to one of the end caps.

Step nine:
Connect the other end cap to the loop portion of the clasp using a new 8mm jump ring.
