Necklace

Step 1
Using hole-punch pliers, punch one 1.5mm hole in the center of the bottom flower petal on the toggle ring portion of one silver-plated 21x19mm flower toggle clasp.

Repeat to punch one 1.5mm hole on the petal to the right of the bottom petal and one hole centered between the first two holes.
Step 2
Using flush-cutters, cut one 21-inch length of midnight black Accu-Flex® professional-quality beading wire.

String onto the wire one 2mm silver-plated crimp bead, one silver-plated Accu-Guard™ wire protector and two 5.5mm silver-plated jumprings. Pass the wire back through the crimp bead pulling the wire tight against the wire protector. Place a small amount of adhesive inside the crimp (Loctite® optional). Using the crimping pliers, crimp the crimp bead. Using flush-cutters, trim the excess wire from the short end. Place a 4mm silver-plated stardust crimp cover over the crimp tube then gently close it.

  • One 5x4mm dark brown wood bead
  • One 2mm silver-plated crimp bead

Step 7
Repeat Step 5

  • One 2mm silver-plated crimp bead
  • One 6mm dark blue pearl-coated glass druk bead
  • One 2mm silver-plated crimp bead
Using round-nose pliers, chain-nose pliers and flush-cutters, form a simple loop on the straight end of the wire creating a beading link.

Repeat to create a second beading link using the following beads:
  • One 2mm silver-plated crimp bead
  • One 5x4mm white wood bead
  • One 2mm silver-plated crimp bead
Repeat to create a third beading link using the following beads:

Open the opposite loop on the dark brown wood beading link and pass it through one loop on the white beading link. Close the loop.
Step 17
Using bent-nose pliers and chain-nose pliers, open one 5.5mm silver-plated jumpring and pass it through the opposite loop on the white wood bead beading link and the loop on one 17mm antiqued silver-finished star charm. Close the jumpring.
