Forever Bridal Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

This necklace is ideal for a bride who likes something classic and elegant, with a twist! Accent colors on the traditional white dress are very popular. Consider adding a touch of black in your jewelry for an evening or formal wedding.

Step one: Cut a length of ZambaPro™ 49 .019 30FT jewelry wire to approximately 22 inches. Crimp one end to a sterling silver open jump ring, and cover with a crimp cover. For instructions on how to crimp or use a crimp cover, please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Attach the jump ring to the bar side of the toggle clasp.

Step two: String a size 11/0 Toho round gold-lined aqua seed bead, followed by a 4mm sterling silver matte satin bead, another Toho, a 6mm Swarovski jet bicone, Toho bead, 6mm Swarovski Tahitian look pearl, another seed bead and a jet bicone. Repeat this pattern six more times.

Step three: String a Toho bead, 4mm matte silver round, Toho and another round. Add the dichroic filigree black heart pendant on a large jump ring and reverse the bead pattern as you work back to the end of the design.

Step four: Crimp the remaining end of the wire to the loop side of the toggle clasp. Cover with a crimp cover.
