Time: 1-2 hours

Instructions:

1. Pass 2" of the 22 gauge wire through the center of the howlite donut. Bend the wire into a U shape so that it conforms to the shape of the bead. Wrap the long tail of the wire around the donut two more times.

2. Bring the two tails together so that they are pointing away from the center of the bead. Slide the white murano round onto both wires. Trim the shorter wire. String the 3x4mm medium opaque aqua faceted glass rondelle onto the longer wire and make a wrapped loop. Trim excess wire. 

3. Onto the flexible beading wire string a crimp tube and the loop of the lobster clasp. Pass the wire back through the crimp and flatten the crimp. Trim excess wire.

4. String 9 seed beads. 

5. String 1 light red opaque 3mm round, 1 seed bead, 1 turquoise rondelle, 1 seed bead, 1 turquoise rondelle, 1 seed bead, 1 turquoise rondelle, 1 seed bead, 1 smokey grey 4mm round, 1 seed bead, 1 turquoise rondelle, 1 seed bead, 1 turquoise rondelle, 1 seed bead, 1 turquoise rondelle, 1 seed bead, 1 smokey grey 4mm round, 1 seed bead, 1 turquoise rondelle, 1 seed bead, 1 turquoise rondelle, 1 seed bead, 1 turquoise rondelle, and 1 seed bead. Repeat this step 4 more times.

6. String 1 white 3mm round and the pendant. String the beads on the opposite side of the necklace so that the necklace is symmetrical. 

7. String 1 crimp tube and the jump ring. Pass the beading wire back through the crimp tube, flatten the tube, and trim excess wire.
