Dew Drops Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

This delicate necklace is the perfect thing for a bride who wants a classic design with a modern twist. It's also perfect for everyday wear with a light sweater or button down shirt.

Step one: Cut around 19 inches of the ZambaPro™ 49 .019 jewelry wire. Using a 2x2mm crimp tube, crimp it to an open jump ring and cover with a crimp cover. For help using crimp tubes Click Here. For help on how to use crimp covers, Click Here.

Step two: String around 5¼ inches of Toho round 8/0 transparent rainbow light grey beads. Add a sterling silver multi-V cut bead, and then alternate between one Toho and one V-cut bead until you have 20 V-cut beads. Follow with 5¼ more inches of the Tohos, and crimp the remainder of the wire to another open jump ring. Cover the tube with a crimp cover then attach one jump ring to each side of the clasp. Step three: Cut a length of sterling silver granulated diamond curb chain to around 20 inches. Center the chain in a Chain Sta. Find the center of the chain and using a large open jump ring, attach the Swarovski faceted teardrop pendant to the center link. Move past the first diamonds in the chain and skip the next segment of links, in the center of the second segment on each side attach a Swarovski indicolite teardrop bead on a head pin and finish with a simple loop. For help on how to make a simple loop, Click Here.

Step four: Move out two more segments on each side, and add Swarovski flat briolette pendants using wrapped loop bails. For detailed instructions on how to make a wrapped loop bail, Click Here. Move out two segments again and center two more indicolite teardrops.

Step five: Attach the chain to the clasp alongside the beaded strand using sterling silver open jump rings.
Approximate size: Short strand: 16 ½ inches, Long strand: 21 inches
