Fun Beaded Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Express yourself with this optimistic message necklace. You can't help but smile when wearing this.

Step one: Cut a length of ZambaPro™ 49 .019 jewelry wire to approximately 20 inches. Crimp one end to the bar side of a sterling silver toggle clasp using 2x2mm crimp tubes. For instructions on how to use crimp tubes, please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.

Step two: Alternate 6mm Swarovski jonquil faceted bicones and 4mm daisy spacers until you have strung 18 of the bicones. Add a sterling silver 6mm roundel, followed by an 8mm Swarovski aquamarine faceted cube bead. Alternate until you have used 3 cubes, and finish with a roundel. Add another daisy spacer, a bicone, daisy spacer, and then a message bead of your choice. Follow with a daisy spacer, bicone, daisy spacer and another message bead. Add one more daisy/bicone/daisy segment followed by a roundel and then the smiley face charm. From here, just reverse the pattern and work back toward the clasp.

Step three: When you are finished stringing the beads, crimp the remaining tail of wire to the loop side of the toggle clasp.
Approximate size: 17 inches
