Surfer Boy Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

For Dad's, grads, or just the cool guy in your life, this necklace will make a perfect gift.

Step one: Cut a length of Beadalon® beading wire to approximately 21 inches. Crimp one end of the wire to a sterling silver swivel clasp. For instructions on how to crimp, please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.

Step two: String approximately four inches of heishi pen shell beads followed by a sterling silver disc bead, a Hill Tribe silver faceted cube bead and another disc. Follow this with approximately three inches of shell beads and the silver pattern, then ½ of an inch of shell beads and the silver bead pattern. Add a kaleidoscope design black horn bead then reverse the pattern as you work toward the other end of the necklace.

Step three: Crimp the remaining end of the wire to a sterling silver jump ring and trim the excess wire.
Approximate size: 18½ inches
Estimated time: Less than one hour
