Dance Floor Twirl Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

You can twinkle as you twirl all night long when you wear this beautiful necklace. Laced with elegant pearls and funky silk ribbon, this necklace is the ideal accessory for both casual outings and fun, formal events.

Step one:
Cut one piece of jewelry wire approximately 24 inches long. Attach one end to one 0.89x9.0mm sterling silver open jump ring using a sterling 2x2mm crimp tube. Learn how to use crimp tubes by reading our Handy Tip in the Learning Center.

Step two:
String the following pattern onto the wire:
  • one 6mm Czech glass druk bead in amethyst luster
  • one 4mm fire-polished bead in metallic light peridot
  • one amethyst luster bead
  • one 8mm Swarovski round pearl in Powder Rose
Repeat this four more times, then substitute the 8mm pearls with 10mm Swarovski round pearls in Powder Rose five times. String the first three beads in the pattern once more. Then add one 16mm Swarovski round pearl in Powder Rose, one 14mm Beadelle light amethyst crystal candy pavé round bead and another 16mm pearl. Create a mirror image on the other side of these three large beads.

Step three:
Finish the strand with another crimp tube and jump ring.

Step four:
Attach one end of the Hawaiian hand-dyed silk to the first jump ring using a 4x4mm sterling silver crimp tube. Do this by simply threading the silk through the tube as you would jewelry wire and crimping down.

Step five:
Loosely twist the silk around the beaded strand and attach the other end to the second jump ring using another 4x4mm crimp tube.

Step six:
Connect the loop portion of the JBB antique silver-plated toggle clasp to one jump ring and the bar portion of the clasp to the other jump ring. Watch our Handy Tip video to learn how to open and close a jump ring if you need help.
