Catch A Wave Necklace Instructions Designed by Cynthia Kimura
For fun summer style snag this trendy necklace idea. The swirls of bright colors that reflect a tropical sunset are brought together by contrasting elements like silk and crystal for a truly unique style.
Step one: Cut each hand-dyed silk strand in half. Attach one half of each color to a single JBB 5mm antique brass leaves swivel end cap using 5-minute two-part epoxy. Read our Handy Tip on how to use an end cap if you need help. Repeat this process with the remaining silk strands and end cap and allow them to dry.
Step two: Cut one piece of jewelry wire approximately 10 inches long. Connect one end to one 5.5mm antique brass-plated 21 gauge open jump ring using one 14K/20 gold-filled 2x2mm crimp tube. Cover the crimp with one 3mm gold-filled crimp cover. Read our Handy Tips on how to use a crimp tube and how to use a crimp cover if you need help.
Step three: String the following pattern onto the wire:
one TierraCast gold antique small Turkish heishi spacer
one TierraCast antique gold deco cube
one ocean sunset mix disc bead
one Swarovski 19mm wave bead in Crystal Red Magma
one disc bead
one wave bead
one disc bead
one wave bead
two deco cubes
Step four: Pass the jewelry wire through the left loop of the orange peak wood pendant. String five more deco cubes and then pass the wire through the right loop of the wood pendant.
Step five: String the pattern from Step three backwards to create a mirror image, and then finish the wire with a second crimp tube, crimp cover and jump ring.
