Step one: Cut a length of ZambaPro™ 49 .019 jewelry wire to approximately 23 inches. Crimp one end to one side of the clasp using a 2x2mm sterling silver crimp tube and cover with a crimp cover. For instructions on how to use a crimp tube or cover, visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.
Step two: String a Swarovski 6mm silver and crystal roundelle, followed by three 8mm Swarovski mystic black pearls, another roundelle, five 8mm black pearls, an 8mm sterling satin bead with April crystals, five more 8mm black pearls, another roundelle, a 9mm Swarovski white pearl, a roundelle and five 10mm mystic black pearls. Now string a 12mm Swarovski white pearl followed by a 10mm round CZ slider, another pearl and another slider. This bead is the middle of the design, so simply reverse the pattern as you work toward the other end of the strand.
Step three: Crimp the remaining end to the other side of the clasp and trim any excess wire. Cover with a crimp cover.
