Wishes and Whimsy Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

This sweet look effortlessly combines fun colors from an Artbeads Designer Blend with beaded spacers and a cute heart pendant. You'll love how easily this necklace comes together. Try using a different Designer Blend to create a new take on this lovely style.

Step one:
Cut a length of jewelry wire approximately 18 inches long. Slide a sterling silver 2x2mm crimp tube onto the wire, followed by a sterling silver 4.60mm open jump ring attached to half of the JBB antique sterling silver flower hook and eye clasp. For help opening and closing jump rings, see this video. Slide the wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place. Use a sterling silver 3mm crimp cover to hide the crimp.

Step two:
Add the following bead pattern to the wire:
  • Three antique silver 4mm beaded heishi spacers
  • A pearl from the Swarovski 4mm Crystal Mix Fuchsia Forest Designer Blend
  • Four Bicones from the Designer Blend
  • A pearl from the Designer Blend
Repeat this pattern six times.

Step three:
Add three spacers to the wire. Add the B&B Benbassat silver-plated brass filigree heart pendant to the wire using a jump ring. Make a mirror image of the bead pattern on the other side of the pendant.

Step four:
Add crimp tube to the wire followed by a jump ring attached to the other half of the clasp. Bring the wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place. Hide the crimp with a crimp cover.
