Patch of Posies Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

This beautiful necklace in shades of purple and pink is made with delicate Swarovski components that will make you feel like a princess. We made this necklace long enough to not need a clasp, if you want it shorter, you may consider adding a delicate clasp to the back.

Step one: Cut two lengths of Soft Touch jewelry wire to approximately four inches. Crimp one end of the wire to the loop of a filigree link using 2x2mm crimp tubes. For instructions on how to crimp, visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Cover your crimp tube with a crimp cover.

Step two: String a 3mm Swarovski faceted round fuchsia followed by a 6mm Swarovski purple velvet faceted bicone, another fuchsia round and a 6mm sterling silver mesh bead. Repeat this pattern two more times and end with the round, bicone, round pattern. Crimp the remaining wire to the Swarovski filigree tanzanite round. Cover with a crimp cover. Count across the filigree link 8 loops and crimp the other wire. Cover with a crimp cover and repeat the pattern. When you have completed the pattern, crimp the remaining wire to the filigree link.

Step three: On the other side of the filigree loops, connect sterling silver open jump rings. Add 17 inches of sterling silver oval twisted link chain to the jump rings to finish the necklace.
