INSTRUCTIONS

Greengoddess1

1a. Determine the finished length of your necklace. (The shortest strand of my necklace is 14 in./36cm.) Add 6 in. (15cm) and cut a piece of beading wire to that length. Cut two more pieces, each 2 in. (5cm) longer than the previous piece.

1b. Center four round beads on each wire.

2. On each end, string a 5mm spacer and four round beads. Repeat this pattern until the strand is within 1 in. (2.5cm) of the desired length.

3. On each end, string a 4mm spacer, a crimp bead, a spacer, and the respective loop of half of the clasp. Go back through the beads just strung and tighten the wires. Check the fit, and add or remove beads if necessary. Crimp the crimp beads and trim the excess wire.
Tip!
If your wardrobe does not scream for green, try a different bead color. Look for beads that are similar in size and shape to M&M candies.
