How do I Make Diamond Cut Sterling Silver Lariat Necklaces?
Lariat necklaces are one long strand which you can loop or drape around your neck to create a variety of necklace designs. You can make lariat necklaces with any type of bead or combination of beads that you like. Diamond cut sterling silver lariat necklaces sparkle because the beads are cut with lasers for optimal reflection. Look for sterling silver beads with diamond cut designs at specialty online bead suppliers and some craft stores. Cut a 58-inch length of sterling silver beading wire. The overall length of the lariat necklace strand will be 50 inches. The added length is to secure the wire with crimp beads and to create a loop on each end of the necklace for added design. Adjust the length of your lariat necklace to fit your personal style. Thread one sterling silver crimp bead onto one end of the sterling silver beading wire. Add three 6.5mm diamond cut sterling silver beads, one 10mm diamond cut sterling silver beads and three more 6.5mm diamond cut sterling silver beads. Thes
