Lisa's Bridesmaid Necklace Instructions
Designed by Artbeads

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 Lisa picked! Don't forget to check out the matching bracelet and earrings.

Step one: Attach the 6.85mm sterling silver open jump ring to the Lillypilly blue floral shell pendant. Connect it to the sterling silver large ornate bail and set aside.

Step two: Cut a 19-inch piece of Soft Touch .010 very fine jewelry wire. String a sterling silver 2x2mm crimp tube onto the jewelry wire and crimp the end of the wire to a 4.30mm sterling silver jump ring. For help using Crimp Tubes please visit the Handy Tips section in the Learning Center. String the Hill Tribe silver tiny barrel beads and ten (save one for step six) Swarovski 4mm faceted bicone aqua crystals in a random pattern to approximately 16½-inches. Add a crimp tube and crimp to another 4.30mm jump ring. Set aside.

Step three: Cut a 16½-inch piece of Caribbean blue opal cotton yarn with crystals and a 16½-inch piece of smoked topaz synthetic suede yarn with crystals. Place a small dab of Gem-Tac permanent adhesive to the inside of a sterling silver 2mm crimp end and insert one end of each of the fibers into the crimp end. Crimp using nylon jaw pliers. For help using crimp ends and end caps please visit the Handy Tips section in the Learning Center. Allow to dry. Repeat for the other end of the strand

Step four: Cut the silver-plated 3 strand + 3 link chain to 16 inches. Attach a 5.35mm jump ring to each end. Slide the pendant from step one onto the silver and crystal strand from step two and the fiber strands from step three. Attach these strands to the jump rings on the chain.

Step five: Connect one of the jump rings to the bar end of the Hill Tribe silver diamond hammered toggle clasp and the other to the loop end of the toggle clasp.

Step six: On a 1¼ -inch sterling silver ball head pin string a Swarovski 4mm faceted aqua bicone and a Bali silver bicone bead. Finish with a simple loop. Attach the loop to a 4.30mm jump ring and connect the dangle to the loop end of the toggle clasp.
