Kissing Birds Necklace Instructions
Designed by Artbeads

This beautiful and whimsical necklace was designed for our young bride. It is just as adorable for every day wear. For instructions for the complementary earring set, please click here.

Step one: Cut a length of ZambaPro™ 49 .019 jewelry wire to approximately 16 inches (for a 15 inch finished choker. If you need a longer length, adjust accordingly). Using a 2x3mm sterling silver crimp tube, attach one end of the wire to one side of the clasp. For instructions on how to use a crimp tube, please visit the Handy Tips section of our Learning Center.

Step two: String 13 inches (or ample beads for a choker that will fit) of white nugget freshwater pearls. Crimp the other end of the wire to the other side of the clasp.

Step three: On a sterling silver eye pin, attach a three petal small Hill Tribe silver rose to the loop of the pin, then string a nugget pearl and attach it to the ring of the bird clasp using a wrapped loop. For instructions on how to make a wrapped loop, please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.
