Step #2

Twist one of the ends of mesh until it becomes sharp and thin enough to fit through crystal twisted bead.

Step #3

Place an overhand knot 5 inches away from one of the ends of mesh. String one twisted bead onto the mesh and place it against the knot. Make a second knot on the opposite side of twisted bead so it’s secured in place.

Step #4

Cover ¼ inch of mesh’s end with stringing glue. Let it dry and trim using scissors. Use flat nose pliers to fold mesh three times and then attach mesh clasp.

Step #5

Open jump ring from step ‘A’ abd attach to mesh clasp.

Step #6

Repeat all steps to finish other side of necklace.

Step #7

Ruffle up sections next to end of lariat twisting and stretching mesh gently.
