Let's Begin
  1. Use the 22" 2mm leather and fold one end in approximately 1 inch, creating a loop. Slide one 8mm jump ring onto the loop. Using 8 inches of 24g wire. wrap from the inside of the loop to the edge of the short tail approximately 5-6 wraps, ending where you began. Nip the wire and tuck the wire ends into the leather to secure.
  2. Repeat Step 1, and on the second leather loop end, using a jump ring to attach the lobster clasp.
  3. Using the .5mm leather, cut 5 even pieces approximately 12 inches each. Holding all 5 pieces evenly, fold them in half. Place the fold under the unit in the middle, created in Step 2. Keeping all 10 tails together, slip the tails through the loop. Pull as tight as you can against the center of the 2mm leather. Using 8 inches of 24g wire, wrap the wire from the knot created towards the tails. Wrap approximately 5-6 times, ending where you began. Nip the wire. Tuck the wire ends into the leather to secure.
  4. Using the Coin Pearls and Pewter Beads, attached each bead onto the .5mm leather by sliding it up the cord. Secure the bead in place with an overhand knot. Tighten the knot and nip the tail if desired. Repeat for the other 9 beads, randomly placing them onto the leather.
Nice but a little too long
Nice design but a little too long. I found that 22 inches for the necklace was too long; it should be about 18 inches. Then I also made the dangles shorter, and it looks much better.
