SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • Cousin® Buddha Jewelry Kit in a Bottle (1 pk)
  • Silver Eye Pins (2)

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Slide a purple glass oval onto an eye pin and form a loop. Attach a 6mm jump ring to one side of the bead link and a 4mm jump ring on the other side. Attach a 6mm jump ring to the 4mm jump ring.
  2. Slide a lavender e-bead and a purple glass oval onto an eye pin and form a loop. Connect the lavender side of this bead link to the second 6mm jump ring from the previous step. Attach a 6mm jump ring to the purple glass oval side of the bead link.
  3. Attach the jump rings from the multi colored tassel, the Buddha charm, and the lavender tassel to the last 6mm jump ring from the previous step. You now have a bead link chain with the tassels and charm connected at the bottom end. Set aside.
  4. Cut a 24” and a 12” length of cord. Use a cord end to connect one end of the 24” cord to a 6mm jump ring.
  5. String the following onto the 24” cord: 4 ½” of lavender e-beads, one decorative silver round, one lavender e-bead, and one silver disc.
  6. Use an overhand knot to tie one end of the 12” cord onto the 24” cord just after the silver disc. String the following onto the 12” cord: 1 ¾” of purple e-beads, and 1 ¼” of turquoise e-beads.
  7. Slide on the top jump ring of the bead link chain from step 3.
  8. Continue stringing on 1 ¼” of turquoise e-beads and 1 ¾” of green e-beads. Set the 12” cord end aside.
  9. Continue stringing the following onto the 24” cord: 2 ¼” of purple e-beads, 1 1/8” of turquoise e-beads, the 6mm jump ring that connects the two bead links together from step 3, 11/8” of turquoise e-beads, and 2¼” of green e-beads.
  10. Use an overhand knot to tie the end of the 12” cord onto the 24” cord just after the end of the beads on both cords.
  11. String the beads from step 5, in reverse order, onto the end of the 24” cord. Use a cord end to attach the end of the cord to a 6mm jump ring.
  12. Use a 6mm jump ring to connect a lobster claw clasp to one end of the necklace and connect another 6mm jump ring to the other side of the necklace.
