Breast Cancer Hope Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Unfortunately, in this day, many of us know people who have been affected by breast cancer. Here is a simple way to show your support for a friend or loved one. If you are a survivor, what better way to acknowledge your sisters in need than by wearing your hope necklace with pride?

Step one: Cut one 4-inch length of sterling silver curb chain, four 2-inch lengths, and two 1.5-inch lengths. Set aside.

Step two: Cut a three inch piece of 20-gauge half-hard sterling silver wire. Make a simple loop on one end of the wire. String a Swarovski 4mm XILION bicone in fuchsia, followed by a 4mm bright daisy spacer, a 10mm white lampwork bead with pink ribbon, a daisy spacer and a bicone. Finish with a simple loop. Repeat five times. For detailed instructions on how to make a simple loop, please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.

Step three: Once all your links are made, you will be ready to assemble your necklace. Begin with the 4-inch piece of chain; slide the sterling silver hope script slider over the chain. Attach a link to both ends and close the loops. Make sure the ribbons are pointing toward the center of the necklace.

Step four: Add a 2-inch length of chain and another link to each side. Repeat. Finish by attaching the 1.5-inch lengths of chain and attaching the loose ends to the sterling silver 16mm round toggle clasp using sterling silver open jump rings.
