Weekend Warrior Instructions Designed by Cynthia Kimura
This necklace design features Swarovski crystal column pendants, deep blood red garnets, fire-polished Czech glass and sapphire beads, all for that fiery huntress weekend. For a little balance, our sterling silver sweet flower clasp speaks to our soft side. Wear this necklace for those times when you need to get into that warrior spirit.
Step one: Cut one length of ZambaPro™ 49 .019 jewelry wire to approximately 23 inches. Crimp one end to a sterling silver open jump ring then attach the jump ring to one part of the sterling silver flower hook and eye clasp using a 2x2mm sterling silver crimp tube. For detailed instructions on how to use a crimp tube, please see the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.
Step two: Begin by sliding one garnet roundelle, a dark multi-color roundelle, and another garnet roundelle. Follow with three sapphire beads, a garnet roundelle, a dark multi-color roundelle, a Picasso roundelle, another dark multi-color roundelle, and a garnet roundelle onto the wire. Repeat this pattern, from the sapphire beads down, two more times. Follow this with five sapphire beads, a dark multi-color roundelle, a garnet roundelle, and the first Swarovski column crystal pendant. Then, slide on a garnet, a dark multi roundelle, a garnet, and the middle column crystal. Now, add a garnet, a dark multi bead, a garnet and the final column.
Step three: Reverse the same pattern on the other side of the necklace, working toward the clasp. Crimp the end of the necklace to another jump ring and attach that to the final half of the silver clasp.
