Christy's Bridesmaid Necklace Instructions Designed by Artbeads
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 Christy picked! Don't forget to check out the matching bracelet and earrings.
Step one: Cut approximately 30 inches of ZambaPro™ jewelry wire. Crimp one end to a sterling silver jump ring. For tips on how to crimp, please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Randomly string all of the pearls, Swarovski beads, silver links and spacers in a manner that is pleasing to your eye. When you have about 13 inches strung make sure you have a silver double curved link, large keishi pearl, two Swarovski faceted aqua rounds, another pearl and a curved spacer to "frame" the pendant in the center.
Step two: When you reach the end of the beads, crimp the remaining wire to another jump ring and trim excess wire.
Step three: Link three jump rings together and attach to the pendant. Add the pendant to the necklace using the top jump ring, between the two Swarovski aqua round beads at the center of your design.
Step four: Cut approximately 21 inches of sterling silver chain and attach a jump ring to each end. String five Swarovski 6mm faceted aqua round beads on individual headpins and finish with simple loops. Add them to the chain working out from the center in one inch intervals.
Step five: Attach the chain and the beaded portion of the necklace to the sterling silver hammered clasp.
