Sun Kissed Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

This burst of warm color will brighten up any outfit! Use simple techniques to make this fun, sparkly necklace.

Step one: Attach a sterling silver open oval jump ring to each end of a sterling silver flower toggle clasp.

Step two: Cut a length of ZambaPro™ 49 .024 jewelry wire to approximately 30 inches. Crimp one end of the wire to one of the jump rings using 2x2mm crimp tubes. For instructions on how to crimp, please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Cover the crimp tube with a sterling silver crimp cover.

Step three: String a 6mm Swarovski faceted bicone in padparadscha followed by a 4mm Swarovski faceted bicone in sun, another 6mm padparadscha, a 6.7mm shiny saucer bead, a 12mm pearlized glass baroque bead in dark rose and another saucer bead. Repeat this pattern 17 more times and finish with a padparadscha, sun, padparadscha segment. Crimp the remaining wire to the other jump ring and trim any excess wire.

Step four: Using 3x3mm crimp tubes, attach the silk cord to one of the oval jump rings. Attach each one separately and simply flatten the tubes then trim the excess silk. We then crimped the pumpkin cord at about 25 inches and the tangerine cord at 20.5 inches. Save the extra cord for a bracelet or other projects.
