Wear it to a formal occasion and become the belle of the ball or use it to dress up an outfit for a fun night out.
Step one: Measure and cut a 14 1/2-inch length the 20mm 24-inch WireLuxe denim knitted wire. See our Handy Tip for more direction on shaping the WireLuxe for your necklace.
Step two: Cut a length of 1mm WireLace ribbon in silver blue approximately 3-4 inches long. String a Swarovski 6mm XILION bicone pendant in Crystal Blue Shade onto the center of the WireLace. Repeat this step four more times for a total of five dangles. See the above Handy tip for more help on attaching these dangles to the necklace.
Step three: Cut a length of WireLace ribbon approximately 16 inches. Thread the WireLace through the bottom edge of the WireLuxe, about half of an inch to the left of your first dangle. Knot and trim the WireLace tail on the back of the necklace. Add glue to the knot for more security.
Step four: String on a Swarovski 6mm crystal globe bead in Crystal Blue Shade and thread the WireLace back through the WireLuxe so that the globe bead rests on top of the edge of the necklace. Next, add a Swarovski 4mm faceted round in Montana Sapphire to the WireLace, followed by a globe bead, a faceted round, a bicone pendant, a faceted round, a globe bead and a faceted round. Bring the WireLace up through the edge of the WireLuxe about a half of an inch to the right of the first dangle, so that the dangling loop hangs nicely below your bicone pendant dangle. Repeat this step so that each bicone pendant dangle is nicely framed by a dangling loop. To keep your dangling loops from moving, add a dab of glue to each place where the WireLace goes through the edge of the WireLuxe. Knot the other end of the WireLace on the back of the necklace and trim any excess.
Step five: Add a JBB sterling silver U-shape 10mm ribbon end to each end of the necklace. We used adhesive to keep the ribbon ends in place. Add the S hook clasp to one of the ribbon ends using a sterling silver 4.9x7.6mm 19 gauge oval jump ring. For help opening and closing jump rings, see our Handy Tip Video.
Step six: Cut a length of the 040 oval link sterling silver chain approximately three inches long, or however long you need to make the necklace fit nicely. String a globe bead onto a sterling silver 2 inch 24 gauge ball-end head pin and attach it to one end of the chain by creating a wrapped loop. See our Handy Tip for more help creating wrapped loops. Attach the other end of the chain to the open ribbon end using an oval jump ring.
