Create a loop with these beads and then crimp to the wire together using a 2x2mm sterling silver crimp tube. For help with crimp tubes, visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Trim any excess wire.
Step Two: On the wire, string five antique silver four-flower roundels, a pink and lime green mix roundel, a flower roundel, a 20mm Venetian glass white center disc in peridot, a flower roundel, a pink and green roundel, a flower roundel, a glass disc, a flower roundel, a pink and green roundel, a flower roundel, a glass disc, a flower roundel, a pink and green roundel and five flower roundels. Finish the wire by creating a loop with 10 sterling silver round beads and then crimping the wire together with a 2x2mm crimp tube. Trim any excess wire.
Step Three: Cut two, approximately 18-inch pieces of hand-dyed silk in multi pink. String a piece of silk through one of the loops created by the silver round beads. On each end of the ribbon thread a 4x4mm sterling silver crimp tube and a sterling silver open jump ring. Fold approximately 1/2 inch of the ribbon over the jump ring, and thread it back through the crimp tube. Use the chain nose pliers to crimp the crimp tube. Trim any excess silk. Attach both of the jump rings to one end of the antique silver-plated pewter flower toggle clasp. Repeat to complete the other side of the necklace.
