Jeweled Elegance Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Using drop shapes in your jewelry can bring amazing dimension to your projects. Cynthia used dagger beads between more traditional rondelle and bicone shapes to make this necklace stand out. The colors of the daggers complement the colors found in the Artbeads Designer Blend perfectly. You can find more inspiration for using drops in your jewelry designs in this Artbeads Cafe episode.

Step one:
Cut a length of jewelry wire approximately 11 inches long. Slide a sterling silver 2x2mm crimp tube onto one end, followed by a sterling silver 4.30mm open jump ring. Go back through the crimp tube and crimp in place. Use a 4mm sterling silver crimp cover to hide the crimp.

Step two:
Add the following bead pattern to the jewelry wire:
  • Three bicones from the Swarovski 4mm Bicone Jewels Designer Blend
  • One TierraCast antique silver small coiled ring spacer
  • One Czech glass 5x3mm purple silk with bronze finish rondelle bead
  • One Czech glass laser etched blue opaline with rainbow finish medium dagger leaf design bead
  • One Czech glass rondelle
  • One coiled spacer
Repeat this pattern eight times and add three bicones to the strand. Add a crimp tube to the end of the wire, followed by a jump ring. Bring the wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place. Hide the crimp with a crimp cover.

Step three:
Cut a length of 4mm silver-plated brass round disc chain approximately 4 1/2 inches long. Attach this chain to the jump ring at one end of the beaded strand. For help opening and closing jump rings, please see this video tutorial. Repeat for the other end of the bead strand.

Step four:
Attach half of the 925/10 silver-filled 9mm plain round toggle clasp to one end of the necklace using a jump ring. Repeat for the other end of the necklace.
