Plum Blossom Necklace Instructions Designed by Cynthia Kimura
With this sparkling necklace you can emulate the beauty of blooming flowers. The crystals glimmer like the shine of dew in the morning, and the pastel colors and flower motifs add another subtle, springtime touch.
Step One: Cut an approximately 22-inch piece of ZambaPro™ 49 .019 jewelry wire. String a 24mm porcelain disc in green plum blossoms to the center of the wire. Place a bead stopper on one side of the disc.
Step Two: On the other side of the disc, string a 4mm Swarovski round pearl in gold, a 3mm Swarovski faceted round in light violet, an 8mm Swarovski bicone pendant in Indian pink, a light violet round, a gold pearl, a 6mm Swarovski faceted bicone in rose water opal, a gold pearl, a 6mm Swarovski bicone pendant in Indian pink, a gold pearl, a rose water opal, a gold pearl, an Indian pink pendant, a gold pearl, a rose water opal and a 3mm Swarovski round pearl in gold. String the rest of the wire with 60 faceted rounds.
Step Three: Crimp the end of the wire to one half of the antique silver-plated pewter three flower toggle clasp, using a sterling silver 2x2mm crimp tube. For help with crimp tubes visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Trim any excess wire.
Step Four: Remove your bead stopper, and repeat steps two and three to finish the other side of the necklace. Enjoy!
