Single-Strand Necklace and Earring Set with Swarovski Crystal Beads, Silver-Plated "Pewter" Bead Frame and Silver-Plated Brass Charms

Necklace

Step 1
Using flush-cutters, cut one 18-inch length of 3x2.5mm cable chain.
Step 2
String one 3mm crystal Indian pink bicone bead onto one 1-inch gold-plated headpin. Using flat-nose pliers, round-nose pliers and flush-cutters form a simple loop on the straight end of the wire to create a 3mm bicone bead drop.

Repeat to create a second 3mm crystal Indian pink bicone bead drop. Repeat to create two 4mm bicone bead drops using one 4mm crystal cyclamen opal bicone bead and one 1-inch gold-plated headpin.
Step 3
Pass one 2-1/2 inch silver-plated headpin through the bottom hole in one 34.5x25.5mm silver-plated angel bead frame. Continue adding beads to the headpin inside the bead frame in the following order:
  • One 8mm crystal cyclamen opal bicone bead
  • One 4mm crystal cyclamen opal bicone bead
  • One 2.5mm gold-plated brass round bead
  • One 6mm crystal Indian pink faceted rondelle bead
  • One 2.5mm gold-plated round bead
  • The bottom neck hole on the 34.5x25.5mm silver-plated angel bead frame
  • One 3mm gold-plated round bead
  • The bottom halo hole on the 34.5x25.5mm silver-plated angel bead frame
  • One 3.5mm gold-plated ribbed bead cap (dome side down)
  • One 3.5mm gold-plated ribbed bead cap (dome side up)
Pass the headpin through the top hole of the 34.5x25.5mm silver-plated angel bead frame. Using flat-nose pliers, round-nose pliers and flush-cutters, form a wrapped loop on the straight end of the wire, creating a 34.5x25.5mm silver-plated angel bead frame drop.
Step 4
Open one 4mm gold-plated jumpring and pass it through the first link on the 18-inch gold-plated cable chain and the loop on the toggle ring portion of the clasp. Close the jumpring. Repeat to attach the last link on the 18-inch gold-plated cable chain to the toggle bar portion of the clasp.
Step 5
Open the loop on one 3mm crystal Indian pink bicone bead drop and pass it through the hole on the skirt on one 17x16mm silver-plated angel charm. Close the loop.
Step 6
Open the loop on one 4mm crystal cyclamen opal bead drop and pass it through the center body of the 17x16mm silver-plated angel charm. Close the loop. Repeat Steps 5 and 6 to add crystal bead drops to the second 17x16mm silver-plated angel charm.
Step 7
Open one 3mm gold-plated jumpring and pass it through the loop on the 34.5x25.5mm silver-plated angel bead frame drop and the chain link 8-3/4 inches from the toggle ring portion of the clasp. Close the jumpring.
Step 8
Open one 4mm gold-plated jumpring and pass it through the loop on the top of one of the 17x16mm silver-plated angel charms and the chain 10 links up from the focal on the toggle bar portion of the clasp.

Repeat to attach one 17x16mm silver plated angel charm to the chain 22 links up from the focal on the toggle ring portion of the clasp. Close the jumpring.
