Bold TierraCast components and a color-changing mood bead make me feel adventurous when I wear this necklace!
TierraCast Western Winds items combine effortlessly with unique Czech glass beads, leather, and a colorful mood bead in this necklace. It has a wonderfully chic boho look. You can wear this necklace again and again, whether you're out adventuring or relaxing at home.
Slide a TierraCast antique copper-plated pewter Western bead onto a TierraCast copper 2-inch 21 gauge eye pin, followed by a Mirage Mood Shangri-La round bead, and another Western bead. Make a simple loop at the top of the beads. Add the TierraCast antique copper-plated pewter 2-inch feather pendant to the bottom of the link using a 6mm copper 18 gauge open jump ring.
Cut a length of jewelry wire approximately 12 inches long. Slide a TierraCast antique copper 2x2mm crimp tube onto one end, followed by a jump ring. Bring the wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place. Hide the crimp with a 3mm copper corrugated crimp cover.
Add a Czech glass 7x5mm tanzanite and pink opaque mix with bronze finish rondelle bead to the strand, followed by a Czech glass 10mm sage green with silver/blue Picasso faceted round bead, a Western bead, and a 10mm bead. Repeat two times, then add a tanzanite bead. Add your feather focal to the strand using a jump ring. Make a mirror image of the bead pattern on the other side of the focal.
Slide a crimp tube onto the strand, followed by a jump ring. Bring the wire back through the jump ring and crimp in place. Hide the crimp with a crimp cover.
Cut a length of Leather Cord USA 2mm metallic maroon round leather approximately eight inches long. Insert one end into a JBB 3mm antique copper-plated brass fancy crimp end cap with loop and flatten the middle of the crimp end in place on the leather with pliers. Attach to the jump ring at one end of your necklace. Repeat this step for the other side of the necklace.
Add a Western bead to the leather on one side of your necklace. Add the TierraCast antique copper-plated pewter Western button to the end of your leather, leaving a half-inch tail. Fold the tail down and wire wrap to the leather strand to secure using 22 gauge Artbeads Designer Wire in Antique Copper.
Add a Western bead to the leather on the other side of your necklace. Fold the end of your leather down to make a loop wide enough to fit the button on the other end of your necklace and then wire wrap to secure.
