copyright 2010 Deborah Roberti

MATERIALS (for an 18-inch necklace, not including clasp)

• 6 yards of thread, size D, or 6lb. FireLine
• About 40 size 11/0 bronze seed beads: I used Miyuki #457L Light Bronze.
• About 150 size 11/0 green seed beads: I used Tourmaline Gold Luster 11-0306. Can be purchased online at Tourmaline Gold Luster 11-0306.
• About 80 size 3mm fire-polished beads: I used Czech Periodot/Olive Valentinit.
• About 82 size 4mm fire-polished beads: I used Czech Darker Amethyst with Sapphire Gold.
• About 76 size 4mm bicone crystals: I used Swarovski Violet Opal.
• clasp

Step 1: Thread your needle with 6 yards of thread or FireLine.

String a green seed bead, a 3mm fire-polished bead, a green seed bead, a 3mm fire-polished bead, a green seed bead, a 4mm fire-polished bead, a bronze seed bead, a 4mm fire-polished bead, a green seed bead, a bicone crystal, a bronze seed bead and a bicone crystal.

Bring the beads to the middle of your length of thread and tie them in a circle with a double knot:

You’ll be starting in the middle of the necklace, using half the thread to create the right side of the necklace and the other half (the long tail) to create the middle and left side.
You can start with less thread if you wish and add more as you need it.

Step 2: Go back around through the beads that you strung in the first step:

Step 3: Go back up and around through the green seed bead, the 3mm fire-polished bead, the green seed bead, the 3mm fire-polished bead, the green seed bead, the 4mm fire-polished bead and the bronze seed bead:

Step 10: Repeat Step 4 to Step 9 until this side of your necklace is the length you want it, minus about a half-inch inch and the length of your clasp:

Step 11: To attach one side of the clasp, string a 4mm fire-polished bead, a green seed bead, a
