This eclectic piece fuses the best jewelry components from several categories, using silver, crystal, porcelain and even seed beads to create a diverse, yet cohesive piece. For a matching bracelet that was also inspired by the Global Fusion trend, see the Tunisian Bazaar bracelet.
Step One: Cut two approximately 28-inch pieces of ZambaPro™ 46 .019 jewelry wire. String the floral stamped hoop disc onto the center of both strands of wire. Place a bead stopper on one side of the disc.
Step Two: On one side of the disc, string ten 11/0 Toho triangle hybrids beads in marbled Hematite AB on each strand of wire. String both wires through one wire coiled melon bead. If you find your melon bead sliding over your Toho beads, we found it helpful to string a few more Tohos onto one of the wires inside the melon bead. String five Toho beads on each strand of wire. String both wires through one 10mm sterling silver oxidized pattern bead. String five Toho beads on each strand of wire. String both wires through a 14mm Swarovski twist in Crystal Red Magma. Add a 6mm Swarovski XILION bicone in Dark Sapphire and a 7mm porcelain flat square yellow spirals bead. Repeat four times. Add another Sapphire bicone. Fill the rest of each wire with Toho beads.
Step Three: Finish by crimping each wire to one end of the sterling silver simple hammered toggle with a 2x2mm sterling silver crimp tube. For help with crimp tubes visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.
Step Four: Remove the bead stopper, and repeat steps two and three to complete the other side of the necklace.
