Instructions

1. Cut the beading wire into two pieces: 22" and 24".

2. Holding both wires together as one, string a crimp tube. Pass the beading wires through the loop of the toggle clasp and back through the crimp tube. Flatten the tube.

3. String 1 silver seed bead, 5.5" of cream seed beads, 1 silver seed bead, and 1 white eye bead. Separate the wires and place a bead bug or a piece of tape on the longer wire to hold the beads in place.

4. Arrange the 2-hole slider beads into two groups of 5. The first group bends in one direction, and the second group is flipped so they bend in the opposite direction. You will string the first 5 beads on one side of the necklace and the second 5 beads on the opposite side of the necklace.

5. Onto the shorter wire, string 1 silver seed bead, 10 cream seed beads, and 1  silver seed bead.

6. Next, string the top hole of a white stone slider,  2 silver seed beads, 1 6mm blue round, and 2  silver seed beads. Repeat this step 4 more times. 

7. String 1 silver seed bead, 1 yellow faceted round, 1 multi-striped blown round, 1 yellow faceted round, and 1 silver seed bead. 

8.String the top hole of a white stone slider (in the opposite orientation to the ones you strung in step 6), 2 silver seed beads, 1 6mm blue glass round, and 2 silver seed beads. Repeat 3 more times.

9. String the top hole of 1 white stone slider, 1 silver seed bead, 10 cream seed beads, and 1 silver seed bead. Place a bead bug or piece of tape on the wire to hold beads in place while you string the second strand.

10. Onto the longer wire string 1 silver seed bead, 10 cream seed beads, 1 silver seed bead, and the lower hole of the already strung white stone slider. In this half of the necklace you will always string the lower hole of all of the sliders that have already been strung. 

11. String 1 silver seed bead, 1 yellow faceted round, 1 turquoise faceted round, 1 yellow faceted round, 1 silver seed bead, and the lower hole of the next white stone slider. Repeat 3 more times.

12. String 1 silver seed bead, 1 yellow faceted round, 1 blue round, 1 turquoise faceted round, 1 blue round, 1 yellow faceted round, and 1 silver seed bead. Pass the wire through the next white stone slider and repeat step 11. 

13. String 1 silver seed bead, 10 cream seed beads, and 1 silver seed bead. 

14. Remove tape or bead bug from shorter wire. Holding both wires together, string 1 white eye bead, 1 silver seed bead, 5.5" cream seed beads, 1 silver seed bead, and 1 crimp tube. Pass the wires through the loop of the toggle clasp and back through the crimp tube. Flatten the tubes and trim excess wire.
