Silver Cross
1 jump ring
Flower beads
Colored Paper    
2 crimp beads    
Blue beads
Small Paper Flower
1 lobster claw

Crystal beads    
.015 wire
Silver beads


E 6000 glue        
EnviroTex Lite Pour-On    

To make the silver cross:

Tear colored paper into small pieces. Arrange them on the cross to make your own design. I used mainly the purple and green paper. Once you have a design that you like, glue your paper to the cross. Glue the small brown paper flower to the center of the cross. Glue a clear crystal to the center of the flower. Mix up enough EnviroTex Lite Pour-On to cover the design. Please follow the directions for mixing this solution that are on the box. Pour your solution over the design on the cross. Let this dry for a few days. Make sure not to pour too much so it won’t go over the sides.

To make the necklace:

Measure out about 21″ of wire to make an 18″ necklace. Put one crimp bead on one end of the wire and the jump ring. Thread the wire back through the crimp bead and pinch closed with your tool. Start threading your beads on the wire. Start with a pattern of a silver bead, green bead, and then a blue bead. Continue with this pattern until you have four of each on the wire. Start the pattern again but then thread a flower bead on the wire between two silver beads. Start the same pattern again but thread a clear crystal bead between two silver beads. When you have completed these patterns, thread another flower bead on the wire, put the cross on, and then thread another flower bead on. You will then mirror the other side of the wire with the same pattern. When you are finished stringing all the beads on the wire and you have checked to make sure you have followed the pattern from the other side, then thread another crimp bead and a lobster claw on the wire. Thread the wire back through the crimp bead and close with your tools. Cut off any excess wire.
