Materials:

  • Tonal Duets™ magnetic flower clasp JMC1045T or JMC1046T
  • Tonal Duets™ watering can tassel JMC0380T
  • 5 Grape ivy mix bead strands 1999-M248
  • Twister Beads™ silver seed bead strand TW2012
  • 49 Strand sterling silver plated Beadalon® wire 1949-03
  • Jump rings 1880-98
  • Crimp beads silver 1858-2
  • Precision pliers set 1995-14
  • Micro crimp tool 1949-09
  • Bead stoppers 1986-22

Instructions:

  1. Cut one strand Beadalon wire to 26 inches, cut another to 25 inches and cut a third to 24 inches.
     
  2. Starting with the 26 inch wire: Thread a few beads on the wire, followed by a crimp bead and then a few more beads. Pass the wire through one half of the clasp and down through the beads and crimp. Crimp the crimp bead in place.
     
  3. Fill the strand with beads. Don't think too much about it. Just make it random and use 3-5 seed beads in between the grape ivy mix beads. At the other end of the strand, thread on a crimp bead and then a few more beads. Pass the wire through the clasp and back down through the beads, then crimp the crimp bead in place.
