True Love Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

I bead when I am inspired. Whether you are looking for a Valentine's Day or Mother's Day gift, or just love red, this vibrant necklace is just the thing to inspire a great design!

Step one: Cut three lengths of ZambaPro™ 49 .014 jewelry wire. Cut two to 33 inches and one 30 inches. Crimp one of the long wires to one of the jump rings on the clasp using a 2x2mm sterling silver crimp tube. String ½ of an inch of Toho 8/0 rounds opaque cherry followed by 27 inches of Toho 8/0 silver lined ruby triangles and another ½ inch of opaque cherry rounds. Crimp the end of the wire to the other side of the clasp.

Step two: On the other long wire, crimp it to the same jump ring, string 1 ½ inch of the opaque cherry Tohos followed by 25 inches of matte opaque cherry Toho beads and another 1 ½ inches of opaque cherry Toho beads. Crimp the end of the wire to the other side of the clasp.

Step three: Crimp the final wire to the clasp, string 2 ½ inches of 8/0 Toho frosted silver lined ruby round beads, followed by a 16mm red/Picasso Czech glass heart bead, 6 ½ more inches of Tohos, another heart bead, 6 ½ inches of Tohos, another heart (you are now working on the other side of the necklace so make sure you string the next two hearts point-side first), 6 ½ inches of Tohos, the final Czech heart bead and the last 2 ½ inches of Tohos. Crimp to the other side of the clasp and you are done!
