Ombre Necklace

Instructions:

Step 1: Cut each color of satin cord into nine 5 1/2-inch lengths. Turn each length into a closed loop by fastening its two ends together with an 8mm x 3mm crimp end and pliers.

Step 2: String one copper bead onto the black cord. Follow it with a crimped white loop, then a brass jump ring. Continue, alternating between white loops and jump rings. Repeat for the other loops in this order: peach, coral bisque, light coral, and red. Slide on the second copper bead.

Step 3: Use pliers to fasten an 8mm x 2 1/2mm crimp end over each end of the black rayon cord. Loop a jump ring through the opening of each crimp end with pliers. To finish, connect the lobster clasp to one of the jump rings.
