April Showers Necklace Instructions Designed by Cynthia Kimura
With a gorgeous combination of purple, green and gold, this necklace will give your designs a touch of rich, beautiful color. The addition of faceted Swarovski pendants results in a shimmering, elegant design.
Step one: Cut three 25-inch pieces of ZambaPro™ 49 .019 jewelry wire. Use a 2x2mm gold-filled crimp tube to crimp a 6mm gold-plated jump ring to the wires. For help using crimp tubes, please visit the Handy Tips section in the Learning Center. Attach the 6mm jump ring to the loop end of the antique gold melody clasp.
Step two: String three matte Cassiopeia Toho seed beads and an antique gold bell flower cone over all three strands. Then on each individual strand string the matte Toho seed beads to approximately 7¼ inches. Follow with six peridot and amethyst swirl roundelles, three Swarovski crystal golden shadow briolette pendants, three swirl roundelles, one Swarovski tanzanite briolette pendant, three swirl roundelles, three more golden shadow briolette pendants, three more swirl roundelles and another tanzanite pendant. Reverse this pattern, beginning with three swirl roundelles, and move toward the other end of the necklace.
Step three: Crimp the remaining end of the wire to the clasp, and trim the excess wire.
