Step one: Cut a length of Beadalon® 19 strand .015 satin gold jewelry wire to approximately 19 inches. Crimp one end to one side of your toggle clasp and cover with a gold-filled crimp cover. For instructions on how to use a crimp cover or tube, visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.
Step two: String a 5mm gold-filled matte round bead followed by one 7mm Swarovski white round pearl, five 8mm Swarovski white pearls, a 5mm Swarovski silver and topaz roundelle, a Swarovski 8mm copper pearl, another roundelle, five more white pearls, a roundelle, a copper pearl, a roundelle and a 7mm Swarovski white round pearl. Follow that with another roundelle, five 6mm white pearls, a matte gold-filled round, 4mm Swarovski copper faceted bicone, another matte round and a 6mm white pearl. You will now add a 4mm Swarovski antique brass pearl, copper bicone, brass pearl and three 5mm Swarovski white pearls. This is the center of the design.
Step three: Add a sterling silver open jump ring to your cross pendant and string it on the wire. Reverse the bead pattern as you work toward the end of your design.
