Cut a length of jewelry wire approximately eight inches long. Add a Czech glass matte red AB laser-etched dagger peacock feather design bead to the center of the strand, followed by a TOHO Demi Round 6/0 Bead in Olympic bronze, a dagger, a Demi Round, and a dagger. Add five Czech glass 4mm matte Apollo umber fire-polished beads to either side of the daggers.
Bring both ends of the jewelry wire through a Demi Round bead, followed by the owl with leaves hand-painted red agate rectangle bead and another Demi Round bead.
Add three fire-polished beads to one side of the wire. Repeat on the other side of the wire. Add a TierraCast 2x2mm brass oxide brass crimp tube to one side of the wire and then bring the other side of the wire through the crimp tube in the opposite direction to form a loop. Flatten the crimp in place with chain nose pliers. Hide the crimp with three 4.5mm antique brass-plated 21 gauge open jump rings. Then, attach an antique brass 10mm 14 gauge round open jump ring to the top of all three jump rings. Attach a TierraCast brass oxide pewter smooth pinch bail to the top of the 10mm jump ring. Pinch the jump ring shut around the jump ring using pliers.
Cut a length of Leather Cord USA 3mm natural red brown round leather approximately 31 inches long. Slide your pendant onto the center of the leather.
Add a JBB 4mm antique brass fancy crimp end cap with loop to each end of the leather and crimp in place by squeezing the middle down around the leather with pliers.
Attach each half of the B&B Benbassat antique brass leaf hook and eye clasp set to each end of the necklace using a 4.5mm jump ring for each.
Cut a length of jewelry wire approximately 28 Inches long. Slide a crimp tube onto the end of the wire, followed by a 4.5mm jump ring. Bring the wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place.
Add the following pattern to the wire: One Czech glass 3mm Pacifica strawberry melon bead, one Czech glass 6mm ColorTrends Saturated Metallic grenadine round bead, One Swarovski 6mm round pearl in Crystal Iridescent Red, and one grenadine bead. Repeat this pattern nine times. Then, add a melon bead, a TierraCast brass oxide pewter 15mm lotus tube bead, a melon bead, a grenadine bead, an Iridescent Red pearl, and a grenadine bead. Repeat this pattern once. Then, add a melon bead, a tube bead, a melon, a Demi Round, a grenadine bead, and an Iridescent Red pearl. Make a mirror image of the entire bead pattern on the other side of the center bead.
Slide a crimp tube onto the end of the wire, followed by a jump ring attached to a Vintaj natural brass 12mm classic lobster clasp. Bring the wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place.
Cut a length of jewelry wire approximately ten inches long. Slide a crimp tube onto the end of the wire, followed by a jump ring attached to half of the B&B Benbassat antique brass-plated brass small magnetic clasp. Bring the wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place.
Add Demi Round bead to the wire and then add a random pattern of grenadine, fire-polished, and Iridescent Red pearls to the strand, spacing each bead out with a Demi Round between each. Continue until the bracelet is the desired length.
Slide a crimp tube onto the end of the wire, followed by a jump ring attached to the other half of the clasp. Bring the wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place.
Cut a length of jewelry wire approximately eight inches long. Add a Demi Round and a dagger bead to the center of the wire. Repeat four times, then add a Demi Round.
Slide a crimp tube over both ends of the jewelry wire to form a hoop. Bring one end of the wire back down through the crimp tube to form a loop at the top of the hoop. Crimp in place and trim any wire ends.

Nice choice! All or most of the products needed for this project are shown
below with quantities. Sometimes we sell out of components and aren’t able to order more from
the manufacturer (we know, it is very disappointing to us, too). Use the opportunity to mix up
the design and make it yours by substituting similar products or altering the entire color
scheme—it’s up to you!
