Summer Spectrum Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Enjoy summer's glow all year long with this beautiful necklace. The combination of bright, vivid colors and glimmering facets gives this necklace a touch of elegant brilliance that is perfect for summer nights.

Step one: Place the sterling silver large drop bead cap on the smaller end of the Swarovski faceted teardrop pendant. Attach it by sliding the 0.89 x 9.0mm sterling silver open jump ring through the holes in the bead cap and the teardrop pendant. (Although the bead cap comes with an open jump ring, we decided to use a larger jump ring for our design.) Link two 0.89 x 6.10mm open jump rings from the larger jump ring at the top of the teardrop pendant. Before you close the top jump ring, attach the Swarovski light topaz diamond leaf crystal. Close the jump ring then attach the final 0.89 x 10.0mm open jump ring at the top of the diamond leaf crystal. Set this drop pendant aside.

Step two: Cut approximately 23 inches of ZambaPro™ jewelry wire. Use a 2x2mm crimp tube to crimp one end of your wire onto a 1.00 x 6.10mm open jump ring. Attach the loop end of the sterling silver toggle clasp to the jump ring.

Step three: String a 4mm sterling silver round bead followed by a 6mm padparadscha faceted bicone. Repeat this pattern 18 times, followed by another sterling silver round bead.

Step four: String a 4mm padparadscha faceted bicone followed by a erinite briolette pendant, three 4mm padparadscha bicones, a tanzanite briolette pendant, three 4mm padparadscha bicones, a fuchsia briolette pendant and three more 4mm padparadscha bicones. String the drop pendant.

Step five: Reverse the pattern to complete the necklace. Crimp to a 1.00 x 6.10mm open jump ring and attach the jump ring to the bar end of the clasp.
