Size 8 Hex Seed Beads
Cut 2 sets of 5 pieces of Chain each tapered from 3 inches to 2 inches and 1.75 coils of Memory Wire.
Add a piece of tape on one end of the Memory Wire to prevent the beads from falling off. String the seed beads onto the Memory Wire leaving about 6 inches from the end. String on one large bead, one seed bead 2 times.
Add 5 of the tapered pieces of chain in order from longest to shortest.
Coil the end of the Memory Wire using the Memory Wire Finishing Pliers.
Slide the tape off of the other end. String the large, flat, silver beads on the other side to mirror the other side. String the other 5 pieces of chain in order from longest to shortest again.
Make sure your necklace is the length you'd like, make adjustments as necessary.
Coil up the end of the Memory Wire.
Pair your choker with a longer, collar or princess length necklace, and show off your "boardroom bling" in your next Zoom meeting!
Deb gave me so much food for thought about designing with Memory Wire. The idea of turning the Memory Wire around to the front opens up all kinds of new possibilities!
