Fancy Pearl and Crystal Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

This necklace is simple to string and elegant to wear. We offer two color alternatives, but feel free to be creative, mix any colors you like.

Step one: Cut a length of ZambaPro™ 49 .014 jewelry wire to approximately 20 inches. Using a 2x2mm sterling silver crimp tube, attach the jewelry wire to a 12mm sterling silver bowed toggle clasp. For detailed instructions on how to use a crimp tube, please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Cover your crimp tube with a sterling silver crimp cover. Gently close with chain nose pliers.

Step two: To string the necklace, simply add beads as you please. This pattern is random, the only suggestion we make is that you place the bicones between daisy spacers to set them apart. The unevenness of this piece gives it its character.

Step three: Finish the piece as you started it, with a crimp tube and cover. Trim the excess wire. You have a unique, beautiful piece. Be creative with color and try combining the textures in different ways.
Approximate size: 18 inches
