Necklace

Step 1
Using a pair of chain-nose pliers and bent-nose pliers separate one 19-inch length of gold-plated 8mm round chain.
Step 2
String the following onto one gold-plated 2-inch eyepin:
  • One acrylic black with red speckles 22mm flat star
  • One Swarovski and gold-plated 4x2mm rondelle
  • One gold-plated 6mm round stardust round
  • One gold tone 6x2mm bead cap (curved end facing stardust round)
  • One Swarovski Siam 6mm round
Using a pair of chain-nose pliers, round-nose pliers and flush-cutters form a simple loop on the straight end of the wire creating an acrylic star link. Repeat to create a total of five acrylic star links.
Step 3
String the following onto one Swarovski and gold-plated Siam headpin:
  • One gold tone 6x2mm bead cap (curved end facing away from the end of the headpin)
  • One gold-plated 8mm stardust round
  • One gold tone 6x2mm bead cap (curved end facing stardust round)
  • One Swarovski Siam 8mm round
Using a pair of chain-nose pliers, round-nose pliers and flush-cutters form a simple loop on the straight end of the wire creating a stardust round and Swarovski Siam drop. Repeat to create a total of six stardust round and Swarovski Siam drops.
Step 4
Using a pair of chain-nose pliers and bent-nose pliers open two gold-plated 6mm jumprings. Pass one jumpring through the last ring on one end of the 19-inch length of gold-plated 8mm round chain and the loop on one gold-plated 14x8mm lobster claw clasp. Close the jumpring. Repeat to attach a second jumpring creating double jumprings.
Step 5
Using a pair of chain-nose pliers and bent-nose pliers open the loop on one stardust round and Swarovski Siam drop. Attach the drop to the 11th ring down from the clasp.

Continuing from the stardust round and Swarovski Siam drop, attach components to every other ring on the chain alternating between acrylic star links and stardust round and Swarovski Siam drops.

Bracelet

  • One gold-plated 6mm stardust round
  • One gold tone 6x2mm bead cap (curved end facing stardust round)
  • One Swarovski Siam 6mm round
Using a pair of chain-nose pliers, round-nose pliers and flush-cutters form a simple loop on the straight end of the wire creating an acrylic star link.
Step 3
Using a pair of chain-nose pliers and bent-nose pliers open one gold-plated 6mm jumpring. Pass the jumpring through the last ring on one end of the 4-1/2 inch length of gold-plated 8mm round chain and the loop on one gold-plated 14x8mm lobster claw clasp. Close the jumpring.
Step 4
Using a pair of chain-nose pliers and bent-nose pliers open the loop on the acrylic star link and attach it to the last ring on the opposite end of the 4-1/2 inch length of chain. Close the loop.
