Step one: Cut a length of jewelry wire approximately 18 inches long. Attach one end of the wire to a sterling silver 6.10mm open jump ring using a sterling silver 2x2mm crimp tube. For help using crimp tubes, please see our Crimp Tool Handy Tip. Cover the crimp with a sterling silver 3mm crimp cover. Learn how to use a crimp cover in this Handy Tip.
Step two: Add the following pattern to the jewelry wire:
Repeat this pattern approximately 20 times and finish the strand with a Lavender pearl. Attach the other end of the wire to a jump ring using a crimp tube and crimp cover.
Step three: Attach a Swarovski rhodium-plated crimp end to an 18-inch length of Swarovski rhodium-plated cup chain with 1088 PP24 XIRIUS chatons in Crystal. Open the jump ring on one end of the pearl and nugget strand and attach the cup chain using the loop on the crimp end. For help opening and closing jump rings, see our Jump Ring Handy Tip Video. Attach the jump ring to the first open loop on one half of the 3-strand plume design hook and eye clasp. Repeat this step on the other end of the cup chain and beaded strand.
Step four: Cut a length of jewelry wire approximately 21 inches long. Attach one end to a jump ring using a crimp tube and crimp cover. String the following pattern onto the wire:
One Swarovski 6mm mini rhombus bead in Crystal AB
One 4mm sterling silver matte/satin seamless round bead
Repeat this pattern approximately ten times and then finish the strand with a mini rhombus bead, a sterling silver bead, a bicone, another sterling silver bead and then a mini rhombus bead. Attach the end of the strand to a jump ring using a crimp tube and crimp cover.
Step five: Open the jump ring on one end of this beaded strand and attach it to the center ring of the clasp. Repeat this step for the other side of the necklace.
Step six: Cut a length of the silver-plated textured oval cable chain approximately 20 inches long. Attach one end of the chain to the final open ring on the clasp using a jump ring. Do the same for the other side of the necklace. Attach the Swarovski 24mm XIRIUS raindrop pendant in Crystal AB to the center of the chain using a jump ring. Your necklace is now complete.
