Ocean Waves Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

The asymmetry of this necklace gives it a unique style. Play with color combinations to give it your own look.

Step one: Attach one sterling silver jump ring to each side of a Hill Tribe Thai silver heart toggle clasp. Cut a length of ZambaPro™ 49 .019 jewelry wire to approximately 23 inches. Crimp one end of the wire to one of the jump rings using a 2x2mm crimp tube. For detailed instructions on how to use a crimp tube, click HERE or visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.

Step two: String a 4mm sterling silver seamless round bead followed by five 4mm cat's eye faceted round olivine beads, repeat two more times, and add another silver round. String a 7mm dichroic round aqua on black, followed by a 6.7mm shiny saucer bead, three 9x6mm aqua swirl/white/crystal Czech glass roundelles, a 4mm sterling round, five 4mm olivine faceted round cat's eyes, another silver round, a 6x7mm dichroic tube green on black, five cat's eye, a silver round, three more glass roundelles, a 6.7mm silver saucer, 7mm dichroic round, 4mm silver round, five cat's eye, silver round, five cat's eye, silver round, five more cat's eye and another silver round. You are halfway there! Now string a 7mm dichroic round, 6.7mm silver saucer bead, three more glass roundelles, saucer bead, dichroic round, three glass roundelles, silver saucer, dichroic round, three glass roundelles, silver saucer, dichroic round, 4mm silver round, five cat's eye beads, silver round, five cat's eye, silver round, five cat's eye and a silver round.
