  • .018 diameter bright Beadalon 19 Strand beading wire
  • Bicone glass beads: thirty 6mm black, eighteen 6mm red, six 8mm black
  • Two 10mm round red glass beads
  • Two 8mm firepolish red glass beads
  • Two 10mm round red/silver glass beads
  • One 9mm cylindrical red glass bead

Earrings:

  • Four 6mm silver spacer beads
  • Two 1 1/2" silver head pins
  • 2 silver ear wires
  • Beadstorm™ Round Nose Pliers

Steps:

Necklace:

  1. Cut a 19" length of Beadalon 19 Strand More Flexible beading wire. String a crimp tube 1/2" from the end. String the Beadalon wire through half of the clasp and back into the crimp tube to form a small loop. Use a crimping tool to crimp the crimp tube.
     
  2. String 15 black 6mm beads. String two silver spacer beads, then string nine red 6mm beads.
     
  3. String a silver spacer onto the wire. Then, string beads as follows with a silver spacer between each glass bead: 10mm, 8mm black, 8mm red, 8mm black, 10mm red/silver.
     
  4. String two silver spacer beads, a 9mm cylinder and two silver spacer beads. Then, follow the beading pattern from steps 2-3 in the reverse order to make the necklace symmetrical. Use a crimp tube to attach half of the clasp to the end of the necklace.

Earrings:

  1. String the following beads onto a head pin: red, silver, black. Use round nose pliers to make a loop above the black bead. Cut off any extra wire. Attach the beaded head pin to the lower loop on an ear wire.
