Tradition with a Twist

We're sorry, but one or more of the items in this Idea is no longer available on our site. Please consider using our suggested alternative product below or selecting another similar product from our store.
This traditional strand of pearls has a touch of flair with the addition of these intricately detailed silver pendants. The magnetic clasp makes it easy to open and close whether you are a jittery bride or have trouble with small clasps. While this necklace is certainly fit for a special occasion, it will not be tucked away in a jewelry box, it begs to be worn!

Step one: Prepare your pendants by linking three oval open jump rings together and attaching one end to the pendant. Do the same thing with all three pendants. Set them aside.

Step two: Cut a length of Soft Touch jewelry wire to approximately 18 inches. Using a 2x2mm crimp tube attach one end of the wire to a open jump ring which you will then attach to a round magnetic clasp with flowers. For detailed instructions on how to use a crimp tube, please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Cover the tube with a sterling silver crimp cover.

Step three: String twenty 8mm Swarovski pearls in creamrose. Follow the pearls with a 5.7mm shiny saucer bead, a pendant (slide the top jump ring onto the wire), and another saucer bead. String three more pearls then a saucer, pendant, saucer and finish with three pearls a saucer, pendant and saucer. String the remaining 20 pearls and attach the end of the wire to the other open jump ring. Put the jump ring on the clasp and you are finished!
