Brook's Gift 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. After much deliberation, they each chose the styles they liked best, thinking those were the items they got to keep. They were right, but Carrie also surprised them with a thank you gift of the second set of jewelry on her wedding day! Be sure to check out Brook's matching bracelet and earrings.

Step one: Prepare your pendant by attaching a large sterling silver open jump ring to the pendant, followed by the filigree link and a smaller open jump ring.

Step two: Cut a length of ZambaPro™ jewelry wire to approximately 20 inches. Using a 2x2mm sterling silver crimp tube, attach one end of the wire to the clasp. For help using crimp tubes please visit the Handy Tips section in the Learning Center.

Step three: String one heishi spacer, followed by a crystal round, a maroon pearl, an aqua bicone, another maroon pearl and another round crystal. Repeat this same pattern nine times. At this point string your pendant, reverse the pattern and string 10 times (starting with the crystal round).

Step four: Crimp the remaining end of the wire to the clasp, and trim the excess wire.
