Step one: Cut a generous length of ZambaPro™ 49 .019 jewelry wire. You will need at least 22 inches for this 16 inch necklace to allow for the curve of the tube beads. Attach one end of the wire to a sterling silver open jump ring using a 2x2mm crimp tube. For detailed instructions on how to use a crimp tube, please see the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.
Step two: Begin with a 5mm daisy spacer, then the pattern will repeat as follows: curved tube bead, granulated Bali spacer, 6mm pink AB fire polished Czech glass bead, granulated spacer, tube bead, granulated spacer, 4mm Swarovski rosaline crystal pearl and a granulated spacer. Repeat the pattern until you have used all the curved tube beads. Finish with a 5mm daisy spacer and crimp the remaining end of the wire to another open jump ring.
Step three: Attach the necklace to a 13mm sterling silver heart toggle clasp using the jump rings that you attached the wire to. Add a sterling silver breast cancer charm to the first curved tube bead next to the heart portion of the clasp using a larger sterling silver jump ring. You can wear the clasp in the front to show off the charm if you like.
