Step one: Prepare the pendant by attaching a sterling silver open jump ring to it. Set aside.
Step two: Cut a length of ZambaPro™ 49 .019 jewelry wire to approximately 24 inches. Attach one end of the wire to the loop end of a 16mm sterling silver round toggle clasp using a 2x2mm crimp tube. For detailed instructions on how to use a crimp tube, click HERE or visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Cover the crimp with a crimp cover.
Step three: String three 4mm fire polished 2-tone rose/lilac AB beads followed by an 8mm fire polished crystal/rose ½ coat luster bead.
Step four: Add three more of the 4mm beads, a 3mm fire polished Rosaline bead, and three more 4mm rose/lilac, followed by another 8mm crystal/rose bead. String a 4mm rose/lilac, three 3mm Rosaline beads, another rose/lilac, and an 8mm crystal/rose. Repeat this pattern three more times, you should have nine of the 8mm beads at this point.
Step five: String five of the 4mm rose/lilac beads, add the pendant, then string five more rose/lilac beads. Reverse the pattern as you work your way back to the clasp.
Step six: Attach the remaining wire to the bar end of your toggle with a crimp tube. Cover with a crimp cover.
