To Have and To Hold Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

It's easy to create DIY jewelry for your wedding day! Cynthia added Swarovski pearl dangles to shining ball chain for a simple yet stunning look. Whether you want something simple like this necklace or want to go for a more intricate look, you'll find more inspiration for bridal looks in this Artbeads Cafe episode.

Step one:
Slide a Swarovski 4mm round pearl in Light Grey onto a 2-inch 24 gauge sterling silver head pin. Create a wrapped loop at the top of the bead. Repeat twice for a total of three dangles.

Step two:
Cut a length of 1.5mm silver-plated brass diamond cut ball chain approximately 16 1/2 inches long. Slide your three dangles onto the chain.

Step three:
Add a JBB silver-plated pewter crimp end cap with loop to one end of the chain and pinch in place using chain nose pliers. For help with end caps, see this tutorial.

Step four:
Attach half of the TierraCast antique silver classic clasp set to the end cap using a sterling silver 4.60mm open jump ring. For help opening and closing jump rings, see this video tutorial

Step five:
Repeat steps three and four on the other end of the necklace.
