Step one: Cut a piece of ZambaPro™ 49 .019 to approximately 26 inches and crimp one end of the wire to the bar end of your toggle clasp. For instructions on how to crimp, please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. String 5 red poppy jasper puffy round 6mm beads alternating with 4mm poppy jasper cubes. Add a Hill Tribe silver stamped cube bead begin the next segment with a cube and alternate with puffy rounds until you have 5 cubes and 4 rounds. Add another Hill Tribe stamped cube.
Step two: String a 4mm round red poppy jasper, an 8mm faceted jasper cube, a 5mm Swarovski olivine faceted bicone, another jasper faceted cube, a 5mm topaz and silver Swarovski roundelle, another jasper faceted cube, an olivine bicone, jasper faceted cube and a 4mm red poppy jasper round. At this point you add a Hill Tribe silver stamped flower disc, and then repeat the pattern outlined in this step again, ending with another stamped disc.
Step three: Add a 4mm round red poppy jasper round and then alternate 4mm jasper cubes with the 6mm jasper puffy rounds until you have three of each. String a Hill Tribe silver diamond pendant, continue alternating cubes and rounds until you have four cubes and 3 rounds, and add another Hill Tribe silver diamond pendant. This is the center of the design, you will simply reverse the pattern as you work your way to the other end of the necklace. Begin with the cube and puffy round segment, string a pendant, then three more puffy rounds alternating with the 4mm cubes, a 4mm round, stamped flower disc, 4mm round, faceted jasper cube, 5mm olivine bicone, faceted cube, topaz and silver roundelle, faceted cube, bicone, faceted cube, a 4mm round and another stamped flower pendant.
