Step one: Cut a length of jewelry wire approximately 9 inches long. String a sterling silver 2x2mm crimp tube onto the wire. Loop the end of the wire around a sterling silver 4.60mm open jump ring and back through the crimp tube. Crimp the tube in place using a crimp tool. For help with crimping, please see our Handy Tip. String seed beads from the Seabreeze 8/0 Designer Seed Bead Blend onto the wire, until the strand is the desired length. We added six inches of seed beads. Crimp the other end of the strand to a jump ring using a crimp tube. Repeat this step two times for a total of three strands.
Step two: Cut a length of jewelry wire approximately 9 inches long. Crimp the end of the strand to a jump ring using a crimp tube. String a TierraCast silver 3mm faceted heishi spacer onto the strand and then add three beads from the Swarovski 5000 6mm Round Sandy Beaches Designer Blend to the strand. Repeat this pattern seven times or until the strand is the desired length. Add a final spacer to the strand and crimp the end of the strand to a jump ring using a crimp tube. Repeat this step for a total of two strands.
Step three: Attach one end of a seed bead strand to the loop on half of the sterling silver 5-ring tube clasp that is farthest away from the head of the clasp. For help opening and closing jump rings, please see this Handy Tip Video. Attach the other end to the other half of the clasp, to the ring closest to the head of the clasp. Attach a Swarovski strand to the rings below the seed bead strand. Then, add a seed bead strand to the next rings, a Swarovski strand to the rings after that and a seed bead strand to the last rings.
