Free Instructions : Spring Is Just Around The Corner

Follow our super easy free instructions to make your own Spring necklace. A simple, but effective design, we're hopeful spring is on its way...are you?! Work with the same colours as us, or choose your own 6mm beads - we have got over 150 different types to choose from!

 

Materials Needed

2 Calottes (CASP)
1 Crimp (CRSP)
1 Toggle Clasp (TOG34AS)
2 5mm Jump Rings (JR5SP)
S-Lon Cord (SLC40),
6mm Crackle Beads (GLUM),
Beaded Spacer Rings (MT1BC)
 

Tools Required

A Sharp pair of Scissors (SCIMX),
Chain Nosed Pliers (BEECN)

Instructions

1. Cut 1.5m of S-Lon cord and thread on a crimp bead to the centre. Pass both ends through the hole in the base of the calotte so the crimp sits inside. To make this easier, trim the ends of your S-Lon on the diagonal. (Picture 1)
2. Thread a spacer ring onto both threads. (Picture 2)
3. Thread a bead onto 1 thread followed by a spacer ring and a bead onto the other thread followed by a spacer ring. (Picture 3)
4. Continue in this manner alternating which thread the bead goes on to until you have used up your string of beads.  (Picture 4)
5. Pass both ends through the hole in the base of a calotte and tie 2 overhand knots to sit inside the calotte.
6. Close the calottes. Open a jump ring and add 1 half of the clasp and 1 half of the necklace. Repeat on the other end.
