Fireball Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

With our recent love for all things Harry Potter®*, we were inspired (mostly by our pleading children) to create some fun jewelry worthy of wizards worldwide. This dragon necklace hit the spot with our designer's nine year old daughter!

Step one: Cut a 22-inch piece of Soft Flex Trios vitality jewelry wire. We used imperial topaz. Use a 2mm copper-plated crimp bead to crimp to crimp to the loop end of the antique gold small bumpy toggle. Trim excess wire. For help using crimp tubes please visit the Handy Tips section in the Learning Center.

Step two: Use a crimp tube to crimp to the jewelry wire 5-inches from the clasp. Alternate metallic dark plum AB tohos and matte galvanized gold satin tohos for a total of five beads, crimp, 1-inch space, crimp, alternate three tohos, crimp, ¼-inch space, crimp, alternate eleven tohos, crimp, 2-inch space, crimp, alternate eleven tohos, crimp, 1-inch space, crimp, alternate three tohos, crimp, ¾-inch space, crimp, alternate five tohos, crimp, 4-inch space, crimp to the bar end of the toggle clasp.
