Starry Night Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

The sparkling Swarovski crystals in this stunning necklace look like beautiful stars set into a bright blue night sky. Give your necklace a slightly edgier look by using the faceted cats eye beads and ocean sunset beads we listed as alternatives to the pearls and pillow beads.

Step One:
Cut a 24-inch piece of ZambaPro™ 49 .019 jewelry wire. Crimp one end of the wire to a sterling silver open jump ring using a sterling silver crimp tube. Cover the crimp tube with a 3mm sterling silver crimp cover. For help with crimp tubes and crimp covers, visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Trim any excess wire.

Step Two:
String 16 blue potato pearls on the wire. Then string in this order: one Antique Silver four flower roundel, one 6mm Swarovski XILION bicone in Tanzanite ab 2x, one clear/blue under the sea disc bead, one bicone, one roundel and one pearl. Repeat this pattern six times. String 15 blue potato pearls on the wire, then crimp the end of the wire to a jump ring using a crimp tube and cover with a crimp cover. Trim any excess wire.

Step Three:
Attach the large hammered round toggle clasp to the open jump rings at each end of the wire. For help with jump rings, visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.
