Sweet Paradise Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cheri Carlson

Our Artbeads Designer Blends work perfectly together to bring the best color waves to your projects. Cheri mixed a Seed Bead Blend with a Blend featuring Swarovski Crystal for this Rose Gold dream! You can see more ideas for using Artbeads Designer Blends in your jewelry-making projects in this Artbeads Cafe episode.

Step one:
Cut a length of jewelry wire approximately 30 inches long. Slide a 1/20 14K rose gold-filled 2x2mm crimp tube onto the wire, followed by a 14K/20 rose gold-filled 4.5mm 22 gauge open jump ring. Bring the wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place. Hide the crimp tube with a 14K/20 rose gold-filled 4mm crimp cover. Learn how to use crimp covers here.

Step two:
String approximately 10 inches of seed beads from the Artbeads Rose Gold Designer Blend. Then, add six inches of a random pattern of beads from the Swarovski 6mm Crystal Mix Rose Gold Designer Blend and seed beads. String 10 more inches of seed beads. Add a crimp tube to the strand, followed by an open jump ring. Bring the wire back through the crimp tube, crimp in place, and add a crimp cover. This is the shortest strand of your necklace.

Step three:
Repeat steps one and two to make your next strand, only this time add 10 inches of seed beads, seven inches of crystals and seed beads, and then 10 inches of seed beads.

Step four:
Repeat steps one and two again to make your third strand. This strand will have 10 inches of seed beads, eight inches of crystals and seed beads, and 10 inches of seed beads.

Step five:
Attach the ends of your strands to a 14K/20 rose gold-filled 6x11.5mm oval trigger clasp using an open jump ring. For help opening and closing jump rings, see this video. Attach the other ends of your strands to a 1/20 14K rose gold-filled 6mm 22 gauge closed jump ring using an open jump ring.
