Step one: Cut a length of ZambaPro™ 49 .019 jewelry wire to approximately 20 inches. You can also use gold-plated or satin gold Beadalon®. Using 2x2mm crimp tubes, crimp one end of the wire to a gold-filled twist toggle clasp. Cover the crimp tube with a 3mm gold-filled crimp cover.
Step two: The pattern for your design is one 6mm Swarovski peach pearl, followed by a Swarovski 5mm topaz and silver roundelle, 4.5mm Swarovski simplicity light rose bead, 6mm Swarovski powder rose pearl, another simplicity bead, roundelle, 6mm peach pearl and a 9x8mm Swarovski asymmetrical peach pearl. Repeat this pattern until you have used all of the beads. You should have 12 segments (ending before the 12th asymmetrical pearl) when you are finished. Crimp the remaining end of the wire to the other side of the clasp and cover with a crimp cover.
