Pink-a-Boo Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cheri Carlson

Flashes of playful pink play peek-a-boo among daring black in this fun necklace design. Cheri combined layers of seed bead strands with TierraCast Rivoli links and matte black chain for a bold look you'll love wearing. The Artbeads Designer Seed Bead Blend she used matches the Swarovski Rivoli crystals perfectly. Discover more inspiration for using Artbeads Designer Blends in your jewelry designs in this Artbeads Cafe episode.

Step one:
Cut a length of jewelry wire approximately 13 inches long. Slide a TierraCast 2x2mm black finish crimp tube onto the end of the wire, followed by a 4.5mm gunmetal-plated 21 gauge open jump ring. Bring the wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place.

Step two:
String Miyuki 11/0 matte black round seed beads onto the wire, interspersed with seed beads from the Artbeads Peony Designer Blend here and there. When you have about ten inches of seed beads, add a crimp tube and jump ring to the end of the strand. Bring your wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place.

Step three:
Repeat steps 1-2 eight times for a total of nine strands.

Step four:
Glue a Swarovski 12mm Rivoli in Crystal Peony Pink Shiny into a TierraCast black finish pewter 12mm twisted Rivoli setting 1+3 link and allow to dry. Repeat for a total of two links.

Step five:
Attach three of the beaded strands to one of the loops on the link. For help opening and closing jump rings, please see this tutorial video. Add three beaded strands to the next loop and three beaded strands to the third loop. Attach the other ends of these strands to the other link in the same manner.

Step six:
Cut a length of 5mm matte black-plated textured rolo chain approximately six inches long. Attach it to the top loop on a link at one end of your necklace using a 5mm gunmetal-plated 18 gauge open jump ring. Repeat on the other side of the necklace.

Step seven:
Attach half of the TierraCast 1/2-inch black finish pewter Anna's toggle clasp set to one end of the necklace using a 5mm jump ring. Repeat on the other end of the necklace.
