Daytime Dazzle Instructions Designed by Cynthia Kimura
Who says we have to reserve things that sparkle for evening wear? The fun colors of this wonderful necklace beg to be worn by the light of day.
Step one: Cut a length of ZambaPro™ 49 .019 jewelry wire to approximately 19 inches. Attach one end of the wire to the bar end of a sterling silver twisted heart toggle clasp using a 2x2mm sterling silver crimp tube. For detailed instructions on how to use a crimp tube, please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.
Step two: String a 6mm Swarovski faceted amethyst bicone followed by a 5mm daisy spacer, a 6x10mm radiated quartz faceted tube, another daisy spacer, amethyst bicone and a pressed Czech glass hexagon in olivine. Repeat this pattern three more times, then add a bicone, daisy spacer, radiated quartz tube, daisy spacer and three more bicones. At this point you will string ten daisy spacers, and add the pendant. When the design is finished it will rest on the daisy spacers.
Step three: Reverse the pattern as you work toward the other end of the necklace. When you complete the pattern, crimp the wire to the heart end of the toggle clasp. This necklace is easy to make but delivers quite an impact!
