Dreams of Topaz Jewelry Project

Materials:

  • 17 champagne 1-hole CZ-Gem Dropz in assorted shapes and sizes
  • 4 ½-yards of .006” white Dandyline beading thread
  • 3 dark brown transparent rainbow10g packs of 11/0 Toho seed beads
  • 2 gold beading cones
  • 1 gold lobster clasp
  • 8” length of 22-gauge gold ColourCraft wire
  • Spin-N-Bead with bent-tip Big Eye needle
  • Flexible beading needle
  • Beading scissors
  • Round-Nose pliers
  • Wire Nippers
  • Jeweler’s Cement

Steps:

  1. Cut the thread into three equal lengths and attach a stopper bead 3” from the end of each thread.
     
  2. First strand: string 6” of seed beads. Pass the needle through a CZ-Gem Dropz and back through 2 ½” of seed beads. String 4” of seed beads. Pass the needle through a CZ-Gem Dropz and back through 2 1/2” of seed beads; repeat five more times. String 3 ½” of seed beads and a stopper bead.
     
  3. Second strand: string 7” of seed beads. Pass the needle through a CZ-Gem Dropz and back through 1 ½” of seed beads. String 3” of seed beads. Pass the needle through a CZ-Gem Dropz and back through 1 ½” of seed beads, repeat three more times. String 5 ½” of seed beads.
     
  4. Third strand: string 7” of seed beads. Pass the needle through a CZ-Gem Dropz and back through 4” of seed beads; repeat four more times. String 3” of seed beads.
     
  5. Cut the ColourCraft wire length in half.
     
  6. Make a wrapped loop on one end of the wire.
     
  7. Remove the stopper beads from one end of each beaded thread and tie them to the wrapped wire loop. Place a drop of jeweler’s cement on the knot and cut off any extra threads.
     
  8. Place the wire end through the wide end of the beading cone and make another wrapped loop on the other side of the cone to attach half of the clasp.
     
  9. Repeat Steps 6-8 for the other end of the necklace.

Note: Use the Spin-n-Bead to string seed bead sections. When threading back through beads to create the beaded dangles, use a straight flexible beading needle. You’ll have lots of leftover beads but it’s easiest to string beads quickly when the the Spin-N-Bead is full.

Finished Size= 26” with dangles
