Bubble Pearls Necklace Instructions Designed by Teri McCamish
Delicate elegance fills this charming necklace, the perfect accent for a bride's ensemble. The gold components are complemented by the hints of soft white, gold, cream and blue the pearls provide. This necklace can be customized with any Lassero letter pendant, so your jewelry can be beautiful and personalized on your special day.
Step one: Cut the gold-plated .75mm beading chain approximately 19 inches. Attach a 14K/20 gold-filled crimp end cap with loop to one end of the chain and crimp shut. For help on attaching a crimp end cap, see our Handy Tip.
Step two: Attach a medium gold-plated chain tag to the loop of the end cap using a gold-filled 14K open jump ring. Please see our Handy Tip for information on how to open and close jump rings.
Step three: String a Swarovski 3mm round pearl in White onto the chain about one inch away from the base of the end cap and glue in place. To glue the pearls to the chain, use a toothpick to apply the adhesive where you want the pearl to go and then slide the pearl on the chain and into place over the adhesive.
Step four: String on a Swarovski 4mm round pearl in Light Blue onto the chain about 1 1/2 inches after the last one and glue in place. Repeat this step for another Swarovski 3mm pearl in White and then for a Swarovski 5mm round pearl in Light Gold.
Step five: Approximately 1 inch away from the Light Gold pearl, glue on a Swarovski 4mm round pearl in Cream. A 1/2 inch away from this pearl, glue on a 3mm White pearl, a Swarovski 6mm round pearl in Light Blue and a 4mm Cream pearl all clustered together.
Step six: Slide the gold finish Lassero 7mm letter M pendant with tube bail onto the chain.
Step seven: About 1 inch away from the cluster of pearls you added to the chain in step five, add a 3mm White pearl and glue in place.
Step eight: A 1/2 inch away from the last pearl you added, glue on a cluster of one 5mm pearl in Light Gold, a 4mm pearl in Light Blue, a Swarovski 6mm round pearl in White and a 3mm pearl in White.
Step nine: An inch away from the last cluster of pearls added, glue on a 4mm pearl in Cream.
Step ten: Repeat step nine two more times using a 3mm pearl in White.
Step eleven: 1 3/4 inches away from the last pearl added, glue on the last 3mm pearl in White. Finish the chain with another gold-filled crimp end cap with loop and attach the 14K/20 gold-filled 5mm spring ring to the end cap with the help of a jump ring.
