Heartthrob Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cheri Carlson

This adorable necklace is simple to make and perfect for a last-minute Valentine's Day design!

Step one: Cut the sterling silver heart chain in half. We shortened each piece to approximately five inches but you may choose to use the whole length.

Step two: Cut an eight-inch piece of ZambaPro™ 49 .019 jewelry wire. String a sterling silver 2x2mm crimp tube and crimp to the end of one of the chain pieces. For help using crimp tubes please visit the Handy Tips section in the Learning Center.

Step three: String a 12mm pink heart bead and an 18x8mm fuchsia over white core duckbill. Repeat seven times. Add another heart bead and a crimp tube. Crimp the remaining jewelry wire to the other piece of heart chain.

Step four: Connect one of the jump rings to the loop end of the toggle clasp and the other to the bar end of the clasp.
