40mm gemstone trillion donut, poppy jasper 6mm round gemstone beads, poppy jasper 4mm Swarovski® crystal faceted bicones, siam/aurora borealis 2x 4mm Swarovski crystal faceted bicones, siam 3mm Swarovski faceted round crystals, jet Size 1 crimp beads, silver plated 3mm crimp covers, sterling silver Interlock toggle clasp, sterling silver 0.024" 49-strand, Beadalon®, silver plated
Tools needed: Round-nose pliers, side cutters and/or side flush cutters
To make this design:
Cut two 20" strands of Beadalon.
String the donut onto one strand and fold the Beadalon in half so the donut sits in the center of the strand.
String twelve 4mm bicones onto each end of the strand, alternating colors.
Run both strands through a 6mm round gemstone bead and pull tight to hang the donut from the strand.
Choose one side of the strand and string the following pattern: 4mm siam/aurora borealis 2x, 4mm siam, 3mm jet, 4mm siam, 4mm siam/aurora borealis 2x, 4mm siam, 3mm jet, 4mm siam, 4mm siam/aurora borealis 2x, 6mm round gemstone. Repeat this pattern four more times.
On the remaining strand, string the following: 3mm jet, 4mm siam, 3mm jet, 4mm siam, 3mm jet, 6mm round gemstone.
Then, repeat the following pattern five times: 3mm jet, 4mm siam, two 3mm jet, 4mm siam/aurora borealis 2x, two 3mm jet, 4mm siam, 3mm jet, 6mm round gemstone.
Instead of stringing the final 6mm gemstone round at the end of the fifth pattern set, run the Beadalon through the 6mm gemstone round from the other strand.
Hold the two strands together and slide on a crimp bead, two 3mm jet crystals, one end of the toggle clasp, and two more 3mm jet.
Push the two strands back through the crimp bead, pull until snug (but leaving enough room for flexibility) and crimp.
Trim excess Beadalon and cover with a crimp cover.
Repeat steps 2 – 11 with the second 20" strand of Beadalon.
