Summer at the Beach Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Whether you are relaxing at your beach house or bustling about the city, as soon as you slip into this necklace, you will be transported to exotic destinations! The large Hill Tribe silver nautilus shell combines perfectly with the wood and shell beads to give you all of the elements of the shore.

Step one: Cut a length of ZambaPro™ 49 .019 jewelry wire to approximately 22 inches. Attach one end to the bar end of your toggle clasp using a 2x2mm crimp tube. For detailed instructions on how to use a crimp tube, please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.

Step two: String 30 pieces of red lip shell heishi beads, followed by a 15mm bayong wood roundel, 12 pieces of heishi beads, another roundel, 12 pieces of heishi beads, a third roundel, another segment of heishi and then the Thai silver nautilus shell bead. Reverse the pattern as you work toward the other end of your necklace.

Step three: Finish by attaching the other end of the wire to the loop end of your toggle with a crimp tube. This simple and bold necklace will be a hit with young and old alike. Note: The heishi shells vary in diameter and may not exactly the same size shown in the photo.
Approximate size: 18 inches when closed
