Butterflies and Bumble Bees Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Spring is in the air, and what better way to show your love of the season than with these beautiful springtime beads from the Hill Tribes silver collection!

Step one: Cut a strand of ZambaPro™ 49 .019 jewelry wire to approximately 20 inches.

Step two: Using a 2x2mm sterling silver crimp tube, crimp one end of the wire to the bar end of toggle BCL0014. Cover with a sterling silver crimp cover. (For detailed instructions on how to use these products, visit the Handy Tips section of our learning center.)

Step three: Begin with a 5.7mm Corrugated Saucer Bead, follow that with five 8mm peridot Czech glass druks, repeat the pattern four times.

Step four: Add a Hill Tribe silver medium butterfly bead followed by five more druks, a saucer bead, three druks, and then the Hill Tribe silver bumble bee pendant.

Step five: Reverse the pattern and work your way to the other end of the necklace.

Step six: Finish by crimping the remainder of the Soft Flex to the loop end of the toggle, snip excess wire and cover with a crimp cover.
Approximate size: 18 inches
