Step one: String a gold-filled 2mm round seamless bead with a 1.0mm hole onto a gold-filled 025 2-inch eye pin, followed by a Swarovski 4mm Cream round pearl, a 2mm gold-filled bead, a Swarovski 6mm Cream round pearl, a 2mm gold-filled bead, A Swarovski 8mm Cream round pearl, a 2mm gold-filled bead, A 6mm Cream pearl, a 2mm gold-filled bead, a 4mm Cream pearl and finally a 2mm gold-filled bead. Create a simple loop at the end of the eye pin. For help creating simple loops, see our Handy Tip. Repeat this step five times for a total of six links. Set aside for now.
Step two: String a 2mm gold-filled bead onto a gold-filled 1.5-inch head pin, followed by an 8mm Cream pearl, a 2mm gold-filled bead, a 6mm Cream pearl, a 2mm gold-filled bead, a 4mm Cream pearl and a 2mm gold-filled bead. Attach the dangle to a 14/20 GF 6mm closed jump ring by creating a simple loop.
Step three: Attach a link made in step one to one side of the dangle on the closed jump ring. Cut a length of the 14K/20 gold-filled 2207 cable chain approximately 1 1/4 inches long or nine links long. Attach another link to the end of the chain. Cut a length of chain approximately 1 1/4 inches long or nine links and attach it to the end of this link. Attach a link to the end of the chain. Repeat this step for the other side of the necklace.
Step four: Cut a length of chain that consists of two links and attach it to the link on one end of the necklace. Attach a 14/20 gold-filled small trigger clasp to the end using a 4.05mm gold-filled 14K open jump ring. See our Handy Tip Video for help with opening and closing jump rings.
Step five: Cut a length of chain that consists of two links and attach it to the link on the other end of the necklace. Attach a 5mm 14/20 GF closed jump ring to the end of the chain using a 4.05mm open jump ring. Cut a length of chain approximately two inches long or 13 links long and attach it to the closed jump ring using another 4.05mm open jump ring. This will serve as an extender for your necklace, making it adjustable.
Step six: String a 2mm gold-filled bead onto a head pin, followed by 4mm Cream pearl, a 2mm gold-filled bead, a Swarovski 5mm Cream round pearl, a 2mm gold-filled bead, a Swarovski 3mm Cream round pearl, and a 2mm gold-filled bead. Attach this dangle to the end of the extender chain by creating a wrapped loop. For more help with wrapped loops, see our How to Make a Wrapped Loop Handy Tip.
Step seven: Once your necklace is assembled, lay it out on a neck form or your own neck. You can give some of the links in your necklace a slight bend, so they follow the contours of the necklace. This can be achieved by gently using your fingers.
