Evening Star Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Perfect for the woman who has classic style and exudes elegance, this necklace will simply complement those qualities. Featuring a bold artist pendant and dark earth tones, this necklace is sure to be adored.

Step One: On a 3-inch head pin, string a 4mm antique copper rococo round heishi spacer bead, a rectangle black onyx evening star pendant and a 4mm Swarovski XILION bicone in crystal golden shadow. Finish with a wrapped loop. For help with wrapped loops visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.

Step Two: Cut approximately 23-inches of ZambaPro™ 49 .019 jewelry wire. Crimp one end of the wire to one end of the antique copper-plated pewter three petal leaf toggle clasp using a 2x2mm sterling silver crimp tube. For help with crimp tubes visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.

Step Three: On the wire string in this order: a heishi bead, a 4mm Swarovski round pearl in copper, a crystal golden shadow bicone, a 4mm Swarovski round in bronze, a 6mm Swarovski round pearl in dark green, an 8mm Swarovski faceted roundelle in mocca, a dark green pearl, a bronze pearl, a crystal golden shadow bicone, a copper pearl, a heishi bead, a dark green pearl, a 6mm faceted roundelle in jet and a dark green pearl. Repeat this pattern three times. String a heishi bead, a copper pearl, two crystal golden shadow bicones and the pendant from step one. Reverse the pattern to complete the necklace.

Step Four: Finish the necklace by crimping the wire to the other end of the toggle, with a crimp tube.
