Emily's Elegant Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

This necklace was originally made for Maggie's bridesmaid, Emily, to wear in the wedding, but we love it so much we think it makes a wonderful summer choker. For matching earrings, click here. For the bracelet, click here.

Step one: Cut a length of ZambaPro™ 49 .019 jewelry wire to approximately 20 inches. Using 2x2mm crimp tubes, crimp one end of the wire to one side of your clasp. For instructions on how to crimp, visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.

Step two: String 14 light orange large nugget pearls followed by a 4mm sterling silver seamless matte diamond cut bead, then a sterling silver bead cap, 12mm Swarovski cosmic amethyst bead, another bead cap, another diamond cut bead and a nugget pearl. Now you will alternate the pearls with 3mm Swarovski faceted round rose beads until you have five pearls. Add three more faceted round rose Swarovski beads, then string the wire through the back of the Swarovski rhodium plated crystal sunflower. See photo to see how it is strung. Reverse the pattern as you work toward the other end of the necklace.

Step three: Crimp the end of the wire to the other side of your clasp and cover with a crimp cover. Trim excess wire.
Approximate size: 16 inches
