By:

Create this jewelry set and become a modern artist!  This elegant set of jewelry from Katie Hacker is made from birght glass and seed beeds.

Materials:

Necklace:

  • Beadalon® 49 Strand wire, .015” diameter, bright color
  • Five 8mm faceted blue glass beads
  • Ten 6mm frosted blue glass beads
  • About 140 light blue seed beads
  • Twenty 1.3mm silver crimp beads
  • Silver lobster clasp and tag
  • Nipper tool
  • Crimp tool

Earrings:

  • Beadalon® 49 Strand wire, .015” diameter, bright color
  • Six 6mm frosted blue glass beads
  • Four 1.3mm silver crimp beads
  • Two silver ear wires
  • Nipper tool
  • Crimp tool

Steps:

Necklace:

  1. Cut five 1 1/4" lengths of Beadalon® 49 Strand wire. Set them aside for Step 3.
     
  2. Cut a 17 1/2" length of Beadalon® wire. String a crimp bead 1/2" from the end. String the Beadalon® wire through half of the clasp and back into the crimp bead to form a loop. Use crimping pliers to crimp the crimp bead. String seed beads for 4".
     
  3. String a crimp bead, an 8mm bead and another crimp bead onto the Beadalon® wire but don't crimp the crimp beads yet. Place a 1 1/4" length of Beadalon® wire through the crimp beads and 8mm bead. Adjust it so the wire is centered inside the 8mm bead. Crimp the crimp beads. String a 6mm bead and a crimp bead onto each end of the 1 1/4" wire. Crimp the crimp beads. Repeat this step five times, 1 3/4" apart.
     
  4. String seed beads for 4". String a crimp bead and place the Beadalon® wire through half of the clasp and back into the crimp bead to form a loop. Use crimping pliers to crimp the crimp bead.

Earrings:

  1. Cut a 2" length of Beadalon® wire. Hold the ends together and string a 6mm bead onto the wires. Push it up the wires to create a 1/8" loop. String a 6mm bead and a crimp bead onto each end of the wire. Crimp the crimp beads. Attach the top loop to an ear wire.
