Daisy Buchanan Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Emulate 1920s style with this elegant necklace featuring neutral blush tones paired with silver and deep blue. A perfect tribute to the Jazz Age, this necklace is feminine and bold all at once. Wear it to a fabulous party and you'll feel as if you're Daisy Buchanan heading off to Jay Gatsby's mansion. Check out the rest of our trends and ideas for Spring/Summer 2013 here.

Step one:
Place the Kabela Design antique silver-plated brass lacy dream link on top of one of the beads from the Dakota Stones lapis lazuli 30x40mm oval 8-inch bead strand, so that the ends of the link are perpendicular to the stringing hole of the bead. Bend the ends of the link around the bead so the link stays in place. Set your embellished bead aside.

Step two:
Cut a length of jewelry wire approximately 25 inches long. Attach a 5.95mm sterling silver open jump ring to the end of your wire using a sterling silver 2x2mm crimp tube. For more information on how to use crimp tubes, please see our Handy Tip. Attach one half of the antique silver-plated pewter round floral design toggle clasp to the jump ring. See our Handy Tip for help with using jump rings.

Step three:
String the following pattern onto the jewelry wire:
  • Three Swarovski 9mm round pearls in Powder Almond
  • One sterling 8mm cross-hatch with dots bead cap
  • One Swarovski 11mm pear-shaped pearl in Dark Lapis
  • Another 8mm bead cap
Repeat this pattern three more times, then add another Powder Almond pearl, a 30x40mm lapis lazuli bead, a Powder Almond Pearl, an 8mm bead cap, a Dark Lapis pearl, another 8mm bead cap and one more Powder Almond pearl.

Step four:
String your embellished bead from step one onto the wire.

Step five:
Use the pattern of beads from step three to create a mirror image on the other side of the embellished bead. Attach a jump ring to the end of the wire using a crimp tube. Attach the other half of the toggle clasp to the jump ring.
