Fun in the Sun was created in a way very similar to Sunlit Seas that I showed you last week. Basically you will use the same instructions, but you'll notice that the clasp area is different. Here's how I finished the necklace off.
1. Take two pieces of 20 gauge wire, each 4 inches long, and turn a simple loop on one end of each with round nose pliers.
2. Gather up all the strands of C-Lon fiber and tie them through the wire loop. Glue the knot and clip the ends when dry.
3. Insert the wire ends through metal cones. Slip a bead or two over the wire ends and create a wrapped loop around a hook-style clasp and loop.
