Ancient Amber Necklace Instructions Designed by Cynthia Kimura
Featuring rich colors, crystal pearls and a bold Swarovski pendant, this necklace evokes a natural beauty that is as timeless as the elements in nature that inspired it. Feel free to select different colors for a design that will best complement your wardrobe.
Step one: Use E6000 glue to adhere the sterling silver right wing charm and sterling silver left wing charm to the back of the Swarovski 35mm Crystal Copper rock pendant. Make sure the wings are pointed down. Allow glue to dry for approximately 20 minutes. Attach the antique silver-plated pewter wavy single leaf pinch bail to the pendant.
Step two: Cut a piece of ZambaPro&trade jewelry wire approximately 21 inches long. Use a sterling 2x2mm crimp tube to secure the jewelry wire to a 5.8mm sterling silver open jump ring. For help on how to use crimp tubes, see our How to Use a Crimp Tool instructions in the handy tips section of the learning center. Connect the jump ring to the loop end of the antique sterling silver leaves with flowers toggle clasp. For help on how to use jump rings, see our jump ring handy tip video from the learning center.
Step three: String the beads and pearls onto the jewelry wire in this order: Swarovski 8mm briolette in Dark Indigo, Swarovski 10m round pearl in Copper, Swarovski 8mm briolette in Mocca, and another Copper pearl. Repeat six times. Add the pendant then create a mirror image of this pattern on the other side. Use a crimp tube to secure the jewelry wire to a jump ring and connect the jump ring to the bar end of the toggle clasp.
