Night On The Pier Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Sport this unique and elegant style for a fun night out on the town! The colorful pink, black and white pattern gives an element of sophistication without being too fancy for a Saturday night stroll across the beach. Impress your friends with this intricate design that is simple enough to make!

Step one:
Use a nipper tool to cut the ZambaPro™ 49.019 jewelry wire into five 10-inch long pieces. String the Murano glass 30mm black/white chevron ground penny bead onto all five wires and center it. Use a bead stopper to keep the bead in place on one of the sides.

Step two:
Create random patterns on all five strings with the following beads: Swarovski 5328 6mm XILION bicones in Padparadscha, Swarovski 5000 4mm faceted rounds in Rose, Swarovski 5328 6mm XILION bicones in Crystal Silk, Swarovski 5328 6mm XILION bicones in Crystal, and Swarovski 5328 4mm XILION bicones in Jet Hematite. Make sure to begin each strand with a 4mm Jet bicone. Each strand should measure approximately 2 inches.

Step three:
Thread all five strands through a sterling 2x2mm crimp tube. You may need to adjust the number of beads on the strands so that the strands gather together neatly. Crimp the crimp tube with your bead crimper tool to hold the beads in place. For help with crimp tubes, visit the handy tips section of the learning center. Use nippers to cut off the excess wire on three of the strands. Use a second crimp tube to attach the remaining two strands to a sterling silver open jump ring. Cover both crimp tubes with a 4mm sterling silver crimp cover. For help with crimp covers, visit the handy tips section of the learning center.

Step four:
Remove the bead stopper, and repeat step two with the remaining beads. Repeat step three to secure this side to another jump ring.

Step five:
Attach a 2mm sterling silver crimp end with ring to each jump ring and close with chain nose pliers. Cut the 3 foot hand-dyed silk in Jet Black with metallic silver edges into two equal pieces.
On the finished end of one of the silk pieces, tie a knot near the end. String one sterling silver 6x9mm cylinder bead onto the ribbon. Tie another knot to keep the bead in place. Repeat on the second piece. Shorten the ribbons to the desired length. (We cut ours to approximately 14 1/2 inches.) Glue one end of each strand to the crimp ends using E6000 glue, and close the crimp end. For help with crimp ends, visit the handy tips of the learning center. Allow the glue to dry.
