Resplendence Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

This necklace is pure fuchsia brilliance. It combines a shimmering mosaic pattern of sterling silver with the depth of Czech glass next to soft fuchsia nugget pearls. The finishing touch is the resplendent Swarovski vitrail crystal centerpiece. Wear it to an important function, and be resplendence itself.

Step one: Cut two lengths of ZambaPro™ 49 .019 jewelry wire to approximately 11 inches. Crimp one end of the wire to a 0.75 x 4.05mm sterling silver open jump ring. For detailed instructions on how to use a crimp tube, please see the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Attach that jump ring to one point of the sterling silver mosaic pendant.

Step two: Slide one of the fuchsia nugget pearls onto the wire, followed by three Czech glass roundelle beads. Continue with that pattern, one pearl bead, three glass beads, until you have nine pearls on the strand, then follow that with only one glass bead. Crimp the end of the wire to another 0.75 x 4.05mm jump ring. Attach that ring to one side of the toggle clasp and gently close the jump ring.

Step three: Repeat this whole sequence with the second wire on the other side of the mosaic pendant.

Step four: Gently press the crimp tube covers over all four crimp tubes. For detailed instructions on how to use crimp covers, please see the Findings section of the Handy Tips section in the Learning Center. On the final corner of the mosaic triangle, making sure that the sterling curves toward you, and that the front of the pendant faces out, attach the pendant with the larger 6.85mm jump ring.
