Graceful Graduation Necklace Designed by Teri McCamish
Pearls symbolize beauty, transformation and wisdom. Whatever next step your little girl takes in her life, show her how much she is revered with this graduated pearl necklace. It's a special gift she will cherish for years to come. Step one: Remove the Griffin bead cord from the card. Stretch the cord and then attach one clam shell bead tip with 2 rings to the end of the cord. Read our Handy Tip on how to use a clam shell bead tip if you need more help with this technique.
Step two: String the Swarovski round pearls in Creamrose onto the cord in ascending order, knotting between each. Learn how to knot pearls by reading our Handy Tip in the Learning Center. String twenty 6mm pearls, five 7mm pearls, three 8mm pearls, one 9mm and one 10mm pearl. Create a mirror image on the other side.
Step three: Finish the strand using a second clam shell bead tip and the same technique from Step one. Attach one sterling silver 0.75x4.30mm open jump ring to each bead tip, and then connect one portion of the 2-strand sterling silver round clasp to each jump ring.
