May Flowers Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Both elegant and vibrant, this necklace is reminiscent of flowers that have been covered with a spring shower. The combination of SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS pearls and crystals with silver components makes this the perfect accent for a warm spring evening.

Step one: Attach one silver-plated aqua 1-ring channel to a silver-plated crystal 2-ring channel using a 4.30mm open jump ring. Use another 4.30mm jump ring to attach these linked channels to the middle loop of the sterling silver contemporary floral chandelier. Attach another silver-plated aqua channel to each of the outer loops of the floral chandelier using 4.30mm jump rings. Set this aside.

Step two: Cut a length of ZambaPro™ 49 .019 jewelry wire to approximately 25 inches. Using a 2x2mm crimp tube and a 5.8mm open jump ring, crimp one end of the wire to the bar end of the star-shaped flower toggle. For help with crimp tubes please visit the Handy Tips section in the Learning Center.

Step three: String 33 6mm SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS white pearls, followed by three antique silver flower rondelles, five more white pearls, one 4mm aqua faceted round and another white pearl. Attach the floral chandelier using a 9.0mm sterling silver open jump ring.

Step four: Reverse this pattern starting with the white SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS pearl and aqua faceted round, and work your way toward the side of the necklace.

Step five: Finish by crimping the other end of the wire to the remaining part of your toggle using a 5.8mm open jump ring.
