Step #2

Repeat Step 1 to make an identical beaded chain for the other side of the necklace.

Step #3

Cut a piece of wire that's 4" long; make a wrapped loop on one end to connect the beaded chains together. Pass the wire through: quartzite, spacer, diamond, spacer, quartzite and make another wrapped loop. 

Step #4

Pass a head pin through: spacer, fire agate, melon, crystal and make a wrapped loop to attach it to the lower link from Step 3. 

Step #5

Attach an EZ-Lobster clasp to one end of the necklace.

Bracelet: Step #1

Connect the following beads with wrapped loops: quartzite; melon; crystal/spacer/fire agate/spacer/crystal; melon; quartzite/spacer/diamond/spacer/quartzite; melon; crystal/spacer/fire agate/spacer/crystal; melon; quartzite. 

Step #2

Attach an EZ-Lobster clasp to one end of the bracelet.

Earrings: Step #1

Pass a head pin through: spacer, fire agate, melon, crystal. 

Step #2

Make a wrapped loop to connect it to an ear wire.

Step #3

Cut a 2" length of Artistic Wire and coil it around the base of the ear wire. 

Step #4

Repeat Steps 1-3 to make a matching earring.

Making Wrapped Loops & Bead Links: Step 1

Cut a piece of wire that is 2" longer than the bead(s) you're using.

Step 2

Make a right angle about 1" from the wire end, use round-nose pliers to make a loop.

Step 3

Wrap the extra wire around the base of the loop 2-4 times.

Step 4

Pass the wire through the bead(s) and make another wrapped loop.

Step 5

For connected bead links, be sure to connect the loops before wrapping the extra wire around the base of the loop.

NOTE:

If you're making a link for the end of the necklace, make the last loop larger than the others to make it easier to fasten the clasp to it.
