    Necklace

    Step 1
    Using flush-cutters, cut the following:
    • One 1/2 inch length, two 1.5-inch lengths and three 2-inch lengths of antiqued silver-plated 5x3.5mm cable chain
    • One 4-inch length of stainless steel 5mm round chain
    • One 6-inch length of 26-gauge silver-finished Zebra Wire™

    Tassel

    Step 2
    Using laser scissors cut fifteen 4-inch lengths of pale green silk thread and thirty 4-inch lengths of black silk thread. Match one end of the forty-five lengths of thread. Using the middle of the 6-inch length of Zebra Wire, make two wraps around the center of the thread bundle. Bring the two ends of the wire together and fold the threads down to create the tassel. Pass onto the two wires one antiqued silver-plated 18x17mm flat bead cone, one Swarovski 7mm transparent and crystal clear mini rondelle bead and one Swarovski 8mm bicone rose peach crystal. Using a pair of chain-nose pliers, round-nose pliers and flush-cutters, form a wrapped loop on the straight ends of the wire.

    Focal Pieces

    Step 3
    Open the black Apoxie® Sculpt, 2-part epoxy molding compound. Mix equal parts of the epoxy for two minutes, or until thoroughly combined, to create a putty-like texture.
    Step 4
    Work a small amount of the Apoxie Sculpt into the setting until it fills the entire area. Press a 40x30mm oval black onyx cabochon into the setting. Create a larger dome over the cabochon using a larger amount of Apoxie Sculpt on the top of the black onyx cabochon. Completely cover the top and sides of the cabochon with the Apoxie Sculpt. Remove any excess Apoxie Sculpt from the edges of the frame using a carving tool. Smooth the Apoxie Sculpt using your finger or a piece of non-stick worksheet.
    Step 5
    Gently push a 5mm star jet hematite rhinestone into the upper center edge of the Apoxie Sculpt. Continue to place 5mm star jet hematite rhinestones into the Apoxie Sculpt in around the outer edge of the cabochon working your way into the center until the entire surface is covered with forty-six stars.

    Set aside and allow 24 hours for complete hardening of the Apoxie Sculpt.
    Step 6
    Repeat Steps 3 - 5 to attach one 18x13mm oval black onyx cabochon and twelve 5mm star jet hematite rhinestones to an antiqued silver-finished 30x28mm oval cabochon setting using black Apoxie Sculpt.
    Step 7
    Place a 5mm star jet hematite rhinestone in the center of an antiqued silver-finished 13x13mm flower component. Use a hot-fix applicator with a 5mm tip to attach the rhinestone to the flower component by touching the top of the crystal for about three seconds. Repeat to attach a 5mm star jet hematite rhinestone to twenty-nine antiqued silver-finished 13x13mm flower components.

    First Strand

    Step 8
    Using a pair of chain-nose pliers and flat-nose pliers, open one 6mm jumpring. Pass it through the first loop on an antiqued silver-finished 21x5mm 5-strand end bar and the loop on one side of an antiqued silver-finished 13x13mm flower component with attached rhinestone. Close the jumpring.
    Step 9
    Repeat to attach the following components using a 6mm jumpring between each component:
    • Three antiqued silver-finished 13x13mm flower components with attached rhinestone
    • One 2-inch length of antiqued silver-plated 5x3.5mm cable chain
    • Ten antiqued silver-finished 13x13mm flower components with attached rhinestone
    • One 2-inch length of antiqued silver-plated 5x3.5mm cable chain
    • Four antiqued silver-finished 13x13mm flower components with attached rhinestone
    Step 10
    Open a 6mm jumpring. Pass it through the opposite loop on the last flower component and the first loop on a second antiqued silver-finished 21x5mm 5-strand end bar. Close the jumpring.
    Step 11
    Open a 6mm jumpring. Pass it through the bottom left loop on the first flower component (of the center ten flowers) and the loop on a peach 17mm star drop. Close the jumpring.
    Step 12
    Repeat to attach the following stars to the bottom of the center ten flower components:
    • One black 12mm star drop to the left bottom second flower component
    • One silver-plated 17mm star drop to the right bottom second flower component
    • One mint green17mm star drop to the center bottom third flower component
    • One peach 17mm star drop to the left bottom fourth flower component
    • One black 12mm star drop to the right bottom fourth flower component
    • One mint green 12mm star drop to the left bottom fifth flower component
    • One black 17mm star drop to the center bottom fifth flower component
    • One silver-plated 17mm star drop to the left bottom sixth flower component
    • One peach 12mm star drop to the right bottom sixth flower component
    • One mint green 17mm star drop to the center bottom seventh flower component
    • One black 12mm star drop to the right bottom seventh flower component
    • One mint green 17mm star drop to the right bottom eighth flower component
    • One black 17mm star drop to the center bottom ninth flower component
    • One peach 17mm star drop to the right bottom tenth flower component

    Second Strand

    Step 13
    Open a 6mm jumpring. Pass it through the second loop the first antiqued silver-finished 21x5mm 5-strand end bar. Close the jumpring.

    Repeat to attach a jumpring to the second, third and fourth loops on the first and second first antiqued silver-finished 21x5mm 5-strand end bar.
    Step 14
    Using flush-cutters, cut a 22-inch length of Accu-Flex® professional-quality beading wire. String onto the wire one crimp tube. Pass the wire through the jumpring attached to the second loop on the first antiqued silver-finished 21x5mm 5-strand end bar and back through the crimp tube leaving one end of the wire approximately 1-inch long. Pull the crimp tight against the jumpring. Place a small amount of adhesive inside the crimp (optional).

    Using the crimping pliers, crimp the crimp tube. Using flush-cutters, trim the excess wire from the short end. Place a crimp cover over the crimp tube then gently close it.
    Step 15
    String onto the beading wire the following:
    • Sixteen sets of one Swarovski 6mm round pacific opal crystal and one Swarovski 5x2.5mm transparent and crystal clear mini rondelle bead

Pass the beading wire through the jumpring attached to the second loop on the second antiqued silver-finished 21x5mm 5-strand end bar and back through the crimp, then pull the wire snuggly so the crimp is closer to the jumpring.

    Make sure there is no slack along the length of the first part of the necklace. Place a small amount of gel adhesive inside the crimp (optional).

    Using the crimping pliers, crimp the crimp tube. Using flush-cutters, trim excess wire from the end. Place a crimp cover over the crimp tube then gently close it.
