Jessica's Bridesmaid Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Carrie presented her bridesmaids with a choice of two sets of bridesmaid's jewelry each! Each one was unique and made to complement their personality. The girls made their choices, and here is what Jessica picked! Don't forget to check out the matching bracelet and earrings.

Step one: Cut a 2-inch length and a 1-inch length of sterling silver chain. Dangle the shorter segment from the center link of the longer using a small sterling silver open jump ring. At the bottom of the dangling chain, attach the Lillypilly shell pendant using the larger jump ring. Set this aside.

Step two: Cut two 9-inch lengths of ZambaPro™ jewelry wire. Attach one of the wires to one side of the toggle clasp using 2x2mm crimp tubes. For help Crimping, please visit the Handy Tips section of our Learning Center. String a sterling silver saucer bead followed by a Swarovski 4mm maroon pearl, 6mm aqua bicone and another pearl. Repeat this pattern nine more times and finish with a sterling silver saucer bead. Crimp the remaining wire to one end of your sterling silver chain centerpiece. Trim excess wire.

Step three: Repeat step two on the other side of the necklace.
