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.
