A Fine Bordeaux Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Rich purple colors create a sophisticated style that only gets better every time you wear it! The bold Swarovski pendant is complemented by even more Swarovski in the beaded necklace strand. The simple yet striking design is perfect for wearing again and again, whether it's with formal attire, casual ensembles or something else! Learn how to make this necklace and add A Fine Bordeaux to your collection!

Step one:
Cut a length of jewelry wire approximately 20 inches long. Crimp one end to half of the Kabela Design antique brass filigree leaf hook and eye clasp using a 6mm antique brass-plated open jump ring and a TierraCast 2x2mm black finish brass crimp tube. For help using crimp tubes, see our How to Use a Crimp Tool Handy Tip. Find out how to open and close jump rings properly with our Jump Ring Handy Tip Video.

Step two:
Add the following bead pattern to the wire:
  • One 3.8x1mm Czech glass jet O bead
  • Three Swarovski 5mm round pearls in Crystal Iridescent Green
  • One O bead
  • One Swarovski 8mm briolette bead in Khaki
  • One O bead
  • One Swarovski 8mm faceted round in Crystal Lilac Shadow
  • One Swarovski 10mm coin pearl in Blackberry
  • One Crystal Lilac Shadow round
  • One O bead
  • One Khaki briolette
Repeat this pattern seven times. Then add an O bead, three Crystal Iridescent Green pearls and another O bead to finish the strand. Attach the end of the strand to the other half of the clasp set using a jump ring and a crimp tube.

Step three:
Slide the TierraCast brass oxide pewter spiral pinch bail over the beaded strand. Line up the pegs of the bail with the stringing hole of the Swarovski 50mm Pegasus pendant in Crystal Antique Pink and squeeze the bail shut around the pendant.
