Brook's Bridesmaid Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Carrie presented her bridesmaids with a choice of two sets of bridesmaid's jewelry each! Each one was unique and made to complement their personality. The girls made their choices, and here is what Brook picked! Don't forget to check out the matching bracelet and earrings.

Step one: Attach a sterling silver simple bail to the Lillypilly mother of pearl pendant and add a jump ring to the top of the bail, set aside.

Step two: Cut approximately 18 inches of ZambaPro™ wire and crimp one end of the wire to a sterling silver open jump ring using 2x2mm sterling silver crimp tubes. Cover the crimp tube with a crimp cover. For help with crimps and covers, please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.

Step three: String seven Swarovski 6mm faceted round crystal AB beads followed by a crystal roundelle, 6mm Swarovski maroon pearl, another roundelle, a 6mm faceted aqua round bead, sterling silver spacer disc, Swarovski 6mm white pearl, another spacer and one more aqua round. Repeat the pattern starting with the roundelle two more times. Add another roundelle, maroon pearl, roundelle and then 10 more crystal AB beads.

Step four: Slide the pendant onto the strand and reverse your bead pattern as you work toward the other end of the necklace. Crimp the remaining wire to the remaining jump ring and trim excess wire. Cover your crimp tube with a sterling silver crimp cover. Attach the jump rings to your clasp and you are finished!
