For this project I used Beadalon 49 stand bead stringing wire, .018" in diameter. This has proven to be strong and hold its shape wonderfully. No kinks or unwanted twists.
I cut four stands at 20 inches long and began stringing. I can't tell you how many beads in total. Instead of securing the ends with a crimp bead secure the strands with a bead stopper. This will hold them in place while you finish stringing the desired number of strands.
Measure a four inch (4") piece of artistic wire and make a head pin.
Secure each wire to the headpin and crimp each strand to ensure that each strand holds tight. Slide a bead cone over the wires to keep it all neatly tucked away.
Add a clasp and there you have a beautiful necklace . I made a pair of earrings to go with the necklace.
You can always find great videos on YouTube so don't hesitate to search for a little help. I was inspired by this video from Aunties Beads. I like their videos because the instructions are clear and easy to follow. If you have any questions just drop me a line.
