Sterling silver beads
Memory wire for necklace
Round nose pliers
Select the beads and use a plate or beadboard to design the pattern.
Cut the memory wire to choker length using wire cutters designed especially for memory wire.
Warning: do not use wire cutters used for wire wrapping or other jewelry making (and do not use your favorite wire cutters!) as the memory wire will dull and perhaps damage the wire cutters.
Feed the sterling silver beads on the wire so the beads are centered.
Cut the rubber tubing into two long pieces. Cut the tubing to the length needed to cover the remainder of the wire.
Slide the rubber tubing onto the wire.
Use round nose pliers to make a loop at each end of the wire to hold the rubber tubing in place.
