Sabrina Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Inspired by the black and white lace wedding gown Audrey Hepburn wore in the movie Sabrina, this dramatic necklace combines the classic elegance of a pearl necklace with stark black contrast beads. Whether you want to complement black accents on your dress, or are looking to make a dramatic statement, this necklace is ideal for your special day.

Step One: Cut a 25-inch piece of ZambaPro™ 49 .019 jewelry wire. Crimp one end of the wire to a 4.60mm sterling silver open jump ring. For help with crimp tubes visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Trim any excess wire.

Step Two: On the wire, string 24 white button pearls, a 6mm faceted round in jet, 18 pearls, a 4mm XILION bicone in crystal metallic light gold, a 30mm dragonfly pendant in jet, a 6mm XILION bicone in crystal cal, 10 pearls, an antique silver-plated pewter etched daisy beadcap, an 8mm chessboard bead in crystal silver shade, a 12mm Artemis bead in jet and a crystal metallic light gold bicone. Add an 8mm sterling silver Victorian trellis bead frame in Swarovski crystal ab with a jet faceted round in the center. Reverse the pattern to complete the strand. Finish the wire by crimping it to a jump ring using a crimp tube. Trim any excess wire.

Step Three: Attach the two pieces of the antique sterling silver with small flowers and curls toggle clasp to the jump rings at each end of the wire. For help with jump rings visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.
