My necklace is 18 in. (46cm) long, with an 11 1/2-in. (29.2cm) chevron chain.
 Using a comfortable length of Fireline, slide a stop bead to 8 in. (20cm) from the end.
 Start a chevron chain by picking up the following beads: a Japanese cylinder bead, two color A 11/0 seed beads, a cylinder, a color B 11/0, a cylinder, three As, a cylinder, a B, a cylinder, and two As. Bring the beads into a ring and go through the first bead again (Figure 1).
 Pick up an A, a B, an A, a cylinder, and two As. Go through the cylinder, the B, and the cylinder (Figure 2, a-b).
 Pick up three As, a cylinder, a B, a cylinder, and two As. Sew through the cylinder (b-c).
 Repeat steps 3-4 until you have made a total of 51 loops. Do not cut the thread.
