DIRECTIONS:

1. Cut a 10' piece of flexible beading wire. Place a bead stopper at the end of the wire. String 3 silver 3mm rounds, 21 red coral 8mm rounds, and 3 silver 3mm rounds. Place a bead stopper at the other end of the beading wire.
2. Cut an 11' piece of flexible beading wire. Place one end of the wire within one of the bead stoppers from the previous step. String 3 silver 3mm rounds, 7' red coral chips, and 3 silver 3mm rounds. Place the end of this strand in the second bead stopper.
3. Cut a 12' piece of flexible beading wire. Place one end of the wire within one of the bead stoppers from the previous step. String 3 silver 3mm rounds, 8' red coral 10mm rondelles, and 3 silver 3mm rounds. Place the end of this strand in the second bead stopper.
4. Cut a 13' piece of flexible beading wire. Place one end of the wire within one of the bead stoppers from the previous step. String 3 silver 3mm rounds, 13 red coral big sticks, and 3 silver 3mm rounds. Place the end of this strand in the second bead stopper.
5. Remove the bead stopper from one end of the strands. Holding all four strands as one, string 1 large crimp tube. Pass the wires through the loop of an eye pin and back through the crimp tube. Crimp or flatten the tube and trim excess wire. Repeat on opposite side of the necklace.
6. Slide one bead cone over an eye pin so that it partially covers the silver rounds on the end of the strands. Slide one red coral big stick onto the eye pin as well. Make a simple loop. Repeat this step on the opposite side of the necklace.
7. Cut a 9' piece of flexible beading wire. String 1 small crimp tube. Pass the wire through the simple loop made in step 6 and back through the crimp tube. Crimp the tube and trim excess wire.
8. String 14 red coral 8mm rounds, 11 red coral 5mm rounds and 1 crimp tube. Pass the wire through the loop on the bar of the toggle clasp and back through the crimp tube. Crimp the tube and trim excess wire. Repeat this step on the opposite side of the necklace using the loop on the ring of the toggle clasp.
