Sophie's Starfish Necklace Instructions Designed by Artbeads
This necklace is so simple and elegant it can become part of your everyday wardrobe.
Step one: Cut a length of ZambaPro™ 49 .019 jewelry wire to approximately 12 inches and two lengths of four inches each of sterling silver curb chain. Using 2x2mm sterling silver crimp tubes, crimp one end of the wire to a piece of the chain. Cover with a crimp cover. For help using crimp tubes please Click Here.

Step two: String a 6x8mm sterling silver s-cut bead followed by a 5mm silver and amethyst Swarovski roundelle, a Swarovski 6mm powdered rose pearl, and another roundelle. Repeat this pattern six times and follow with another s-cut bead. Add the starfish pendant and reverse the bead pattern until you have an even pattern on both sides. Crimp the remaining wire to the other piece of chain and cover with a crimp cover.
Step three: Using a sterling silver open jump ring, attach the sterling silver dolphin clasp to one side of the chain. You can attach the clasp anywhere along the chain to make the necklace longer or shorter.
