Stardust Memories Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

When it comes to your wedding day, you want to make a statement with your jewelry without worrying about detracting from your dress. This necklace accomplishes both of those goals with its swirls and sparkles in a neutral color palette. For a complementary bracelet design, see the Diamond Dance design.

Step One: Cut a 23-inch piece of ZambaPro™ 49 .019 jewelry wire. Crimp one end of the wire to the bar end of the silver-plated pewter outline heart toggle clasp using a 2x2mm sterling silver crimp tube. Trim any excess wire. For help with crimp tubes visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.

Step Two: On the wire, string a 6mm faceted round in crystal moonlight and a 9mm round pearl in white. Repeat five times. Add a faceted round. Continue by stringing an 8x12mm silver swirled roundel bead, a 6mm round pearl in white, an 8mm stardust 3xs cut bead and a 6mm pearl. Repeat four times. Add a swirled silver roundel. Reverse the pattern to complete the strand.

Step Three: Crimp the wire to the heart end of the clasp using a crimp tube. Trim any excess wire.
