    The Spring Mix Necklace combines the bright hues of summer in a fun, cheerful necklace you will be tempted to wear every day. Use ends cones and beading cable wire to help to create a seamless transition from multi, to single-strand necklace. 1. Cut 6 pieces of beading cable into 10 inch sections. Take two of those sections and us a crimp bead to create a 10mm loop with a flat crimp on the end. 2. Use the additional 4 strands of beading cable to create 6 inch strands of mixed beaded pieces. Watch the Spring Mix necklace to learn how to finish the multistrand ends and use the bead cones or caps. 3. Once finishing the ends of the single strand beaded sides, crimp the wire to a simple clasp and wear your new necklace. The Spring Mix Necklace is a simple design that features metal cones to conceal the wire as the design progresses from a four-strand to a single-strand necklace. Create the same look, simplified, using fewer strands and a different collection of beads.
