Sonja's Bridesmaid Necklace Instructions
Designed by Artbeads

Carrie presented her bridesmaids with a choice of two sets of bridesmaid's jewelry each! Each one was unique and made to complement their personality. The girls made their choices, and here is what Sonja picked! Don't forget to check out the matching bracelet and earrings.

Step one: Cut approximately 19 inches of ZambaPro™ jewelry wire. Crimp one end of the wire to one side of your clasp. For help with Crimps, please see the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.

Step two: On a sterling silver eye pin, string an 8mm mocca roundelle, a small Turkish heishi spacer and a 12mm Swarovski aqua polygon bead. Finish with a simple loop. On the bottom of the eye pin attach the Lillypilly tab shell pendant using a sterling silver open jump ring. Set this pendant dangle aside.

Step three: String a Swarovski 6mm aqua faceted round bead followed by an aqua and silver roundelle, an 8mm mocca faceted roundelle, 4 aqua and silver roundelles, an 8mm faceted round mocca bead, eight aqua and silver roundelles, an antique silver-plated Turkish heishi spacer and an 18mm Swarovski aqua polygon bead. Reverse the pattern from the heishi spacer to the mocca faceted roundelle. Add another heishi spacer, polygon bead, spacer, mocca roundelle, four aqua and silver roundelles, an 8mm mocca round and eight more aqua and silver roundelles. Attach the pendant dangle and reverse the entire pattern as you work back toward the other end of your clasp.

Step four: Crimp the remaining wire to the other side of your clasp and trim any excess.
