Animal Instincts Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

This simple necklace makes a bold statement. Tap into your inner wonderful, wild woman with this fun and fabulous necklace!

Step one: Cut a length of ZambaPro™ 49 .019 jewelry wire to approximately 26 inches. Attach one end of the wire to the loop end of the toggle clasp using a sterling silver 2x2mm crimp tube. For instructions on how to crimp, please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.

Step two: String ten black agate saucers followed by a 14mm Czech glass flat hexagon topaz bead. Repeat this pattern four more times so that you have five of the topaz beads. Add 15 more agate saucers followed by the pendant. Reverse the pattern as you work back toward the end of the necklace.

Step three: Crimp the remaining wire to the bar end of the toggle clasp.
