Rejuvenate Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cheri Carlson

Refreshing colors pair with a meaningful tree of life focal in this simple necklace. Fire-polished beads and TOHO Demi Round beads mix perfectly to create a color palette that speaks to the colors of tree leaves and also to the symbolism behind the tree of life. It is seen as a symbol of renewal and eternal life in cultures throughout the world. Make this necklace and add a rejuvenating look to your style.

Step one:
Cut a length of jewelry wire approximately 22 inches long. Slide a sterling silver 2x2mm crimp tube onto one end, followed by a 6mm silver-plated 18 gauge open jump ring. Bring the wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place. Use a sterling silver 3mm crimp cover to hide the crimp.

Step two:
Add the following pattern to the jewelry wire:
  • Six 4mm fire-polished beads in stone green luster
  • Three TOHO Demi Round 8/0 beads in higher-metallic June bug
  • Three fire-polished beads
  • Three Demi Round beads
Repeat this pattern four times.

Step three:
Add three fire-polished beads to the strand, then attach the B&B Benbassat silver-plated brass tree of life charm to the wire using a jump ring. For help opening and closing jump rings, please see this video. Make a mirror image of the bead pattern on the other side of the charm.

Step four:
Slide a crimp tube onto the end of the wire, followed by a jump ring attached to the silver-plated mini lobster clasp. Bring the wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place. Hide the crimp with a crimp cover.
