Easy Elegance Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

This simple necklace can be made in minutes, but will be treasured for a lifetime. Perfect for weddings, a night on the town or an elegant addition to the basic black suit for work.

Step one: Cut a length of ZambaPro™ 49 .019 jewelry wire to approximately 30 inches. Attach one end of the wire to the bar of the sterling silver toggle clasp using a 2x2mm sterling silver crimp tube. For detailed instructions on how to use a crimp tube, please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. String a 5mm sterling silver seamless round bead to cover the crimp tube.

Step two: The pattern for the necklace is a 6mm white Swarovski crystal pearl followed by a 3mm sterling silver seamless round bead, a 6mm purple round cat's eye bead, another 3mm silver round, 6mm Swarovski white pearl, Bali silver spacer, an 8mm Swarovski bicone crystal bead and another Bali spacer. Repeat this pattern 16 times and finish with one more segment of 6mm pearl, 3mm silver round, 6mm purple cat's eye, silver round, 6mm Swarovski pearl and a 5mm sterling silver seamless round.

Step three: Crimp the remaining end of the wire to the loop of the toggle clasp and trim the excess wire.
Approximate size: 26 inches
