Paula and Pearls Necklace Instructions Designed by Cynthia Kimura
Our designer has outdone herself this time! She combined freshwater pearls and a 15mm Paula Radke dichroic glass focal bead, to create this stunning necklace that can easily be worn out for a night on the town, or paired with the basic white shirt for the office.
Step one: Cut a length of Soft Flex 24k gold flex wire to about 18 inches. Attach it to the loop end of an antique copper Heirloom clasp with a 2x2mm 14k/20 gold-filled crimp tube. For detailed instructions on how to use a crimp tube, please refer to our Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.
Step two: Beginning with a 4mm antique copper Teke Heishi spacer, string 40 pearls and 6 spacers randomly.
Step three: Add a 15mm rainbow over amber core dichroic round bead.
Step four: Follow with 40 more pearls and 6 spacers randomly strung back to the bar end of the Heirloom clasp.
Step five: Finish by attaching the other end of the Soft Flex to the bar of the toggle.
