Guardian of the Woods Necklace
Project N1023 [Skill Level: Beginner]
Designer: Megan Milliken
A wise old owl watches over you in this necklace, with braided Czech tri-cut seed bead strands.
- Place a small amount of E6000 glue onto the back of a lucite owl face cameo and press it firmly into an antique brass oval bezel pendant. Allow glue to dry for at least an hour before moving on.
Cut two 2' lengths of Soft Flex Beading Wire.
Use an antique brass micro crimp tube to attach one length of wire to one of the end jump rings on an 18" antique brass chain necklace, where the clasp is connected. Repeat with the second wire.
String about 18" of brown iris 10/0 Czech tri-cut seed beads onto one of the wires. Place a bead stopper at the end to hold the beads in place.
String about 18" of green iris tri-cut seed beads onto one of the wires. Place a bead stopper at the end to hold the beads in place.
With the necklace unclasped, loosely braid the two wires and the necklace chain together.
Then, use a micro crimp to attach each loose end to the jump ring connecting the clasp at this end of the chain.
Use a 5mm, 20 gauge antique brass jump ring to hang your pendant from the middle of the chain.
Choose your favorite lucite cabochon and tri-cut seed beads to match and give your necklace a whole different look.
When substituting in items, pay attention to sizes and styles to make sure all your pieces will fit together.

Tip: Check package quantities for each component. You may have extra material to make more than one finished project, or will have leftovers for other projects. In some cases, adding on just one more package of a component may be all you need to make multiple pieces.
