Matrix Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

When our designer saw this pendant she instantly fell in love. It reminded her of the Matrix movies with the movement, color and industrial feel. She added the copper plated pewter spacers to give the feel of copper pipes, brightened the design a bit with the silver beads and came up with a necklace that is one of her favorites!

Step one: Use a 2x2mm copper antiqued crimp tube to crimp to a 20-inch piece of ZambaPro™ 49 .019 jewelry wire to a 4mm antique copper-plated open jump ring. For help using crimp tubes please visit the Handy Tips section in the Learning Center. Attach the jump ring to the loop end of the antique copper-plated futurist toggle.

Step two: On the jewelry wire thread five SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS 4mm palace green opal rounds, five antique copper 5mm Kenyan heishi spacers, fifteen 4mm palace green rounds, an antique copper evening star, five SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS 6mm palace green opal rounds, a granulated bead spacer, a heishi spacer, a Czech glass flat barrel white core teal bead, five heishi spacers, teal bead, heishi spacer, granulated spacer, three 6mm palace green opal rounds, a circle stamped coin bead, and three 6mm palace green opal rounds.

Step three: Thread the jewelry wire through the one of the bails on the turquoise song wood pendant, add a granulated spacer, teal bead, granulated spacer, teal bead and a granulated spacer. Thread the jewelry wire through the second bail on the pendant and then reverse the pattern to finish the strand.

Step four: Use a crimp tube to crimp to the other jump ring and then attach it to the bar end of the clasp.
