- ½ inch hole punch, or compass for drawing circles
- Scissors or craft knife
- Like the previous project, you’ll want to select text or paper for your frames. Using the hole punch, or a compass and craft knife or scissors, punch out the image or text you’d like to use for the round frames. Using the paper glaze, glue the paper into the bezel and then fill to the top of the frame. Allow these to dry overnight.
- Meanwhile, using the head pins from your copper findings kit, thread on a large aqua rondelle bead and make a wrapped loop. Repeat this so you have two blue drops. Then make 2 wrapped loop pins using the silver rondelles, too.
- To assemble the focal section of the necklace, attach two jump rings to the rectangle pendant, and link one each through a round bezel. Attach your second bezels to either side. To attach the drop, open a jump ring and thread it around both the bezel loop and the aqua wrapped loop. Take a second jump ring and do the same on the other side. You now have a pretty dangle between your bezels! Attach the silver rondelle wrapped loop pins to either side of your focal section with a jump ring.
- To create the beaded portion, cut 2 lengths of beading wire approximately 12 inches long. Attach the wire with a crimp bead, leaving a 1 inch tail. Now thread on your beads in the following pattern: aurora borealis bead, silver rondelle, aqua rondelle, silver rondelle, aurora borealis bead.
- Repeat this pattern for as long as you need your necklace to be. Finish off by adding a crimp bead, your clasp, and crimping off. Trim your beading wire, and you are ready to wear!
