Necklace

STEP 1
Using flush-cutters cut the following components:
  • One 4-inch length of Accu-Flex® 0.014 Dijon gold beading wire
  • Two 22-inch lengths of 0.019 clear beading wire
  • One 5-inch length of gold-plated cable chain
  • Two 3-1/2 inch lengths of gold-plated cable chain
STEP 2
Using scissors cut five 5-1/2 inch lengths of Silkon® thread.
STEP 3
String the following components onto one gold-plated 2-inch headpin:
  • One Swarovski light blue 8mm crystal pearl
  • One Swarovski crystal aqua 17mm Artemis bead
  • One gold-plated and Swarovski crystal AB 4mm rondelle bead
  • One Swarovski light blue 3mm crystal pearl
Using round-nose pliers, flat-nose pliers and flush-cutters, form a wrapped loop on the straight end of the wire creating an Artemis bead drop. Repeat to create a total of five Artemis bead drops.

Repeat to create three additional Artemis bead drops and attach them to the last link on each of the three chain lengths from Step 1 before wrapping the loop.
STEP 4

As you tighten, the beading wire will lay flush in the channel. Pass the beading wire back through the crimp beads and crimp both crimp beads using crimping pliers. Using flush-cutters trim any excess beading wire.

Place a 4mm gold-plated stardust crimp cover over each of the crimp tubes then gently close them.

Pass the thread over one 6mm closed jumpring and back through the crimp tube. Using the crimping pliers crimp the crimp tube. Using flush-cutters trim excess thread from the short end.

Place a crimp cover over the crimp tube then gently close it.

Repeat to create four additional strands with decreasing numbers of Swarovski light blue 4mm crystal pearls. Decrease to: 18 pearls/17 pearls/16 pearls/12 pearls.

When finishing the shortest beaded strand, pass the thread through the first link of all three lengths of chain then through the jumpring and complete the crimping of the crimp tube.
STEP 11
String onto the 4-inch length of beading wire the 6mm closed jumpring attached to the beaded strands, one gold-plated and Swarovski crystal AB 4mm rondelle bead, one Swarovski light blue 4mm crystal pearl and two gold-plated crimp beads then pass it over the wire coil and back through the two crimp beads. String the opposite end of the wire back through the crimp beads. Leaving a little slack in the wire to leave room for the cone, crimp the crimp beads using crimping pliers. Using scissors trim the short end of the thread. Gently close gold-plated stardust crimp covers over the crimp tubes.
STEP 12
Using chain-nose pliers and flat-nose pliers, gently open one gold-plated 16mm fancy cone bead cap and fit it over the top of the beaded tassel strands and chains just below the Swarovski crystal AB 4mm rondelle bead to hide the connection to the beading wire. Using your hands, gently close the cone to secure.

Bracelet

Using flush-cutters cut two 9-inch lengths of beading wire.
STEP 2
String onto the beading wire one gold-filled 2x2mm crimp tube, one gold-plated 3mm corrugated round bead, one gold-filled 2x2mm crimp tube and one gold-plated 4mm Accu-Guard wire protector. Pass the Accu-Guard through the top jumpring on the box portion of the clasp. Pass the beading wire through the other tube of the Accu-Guard then tighten. As you tighten the beading wire will lay flush in the channel. Pass the beading wire back through the crimp bead, corrugated round bead and the second crimp bead and crimp both crimp beads using crimping pliers. Using flush-cutters trim any excess beading wire.

Repeat to attach the second 9-inch length of beading wire to the bottom loop on the box portion of the clasp.

Repeat Step 2 to attach the beading wires to the jumprings on the tab portion of the clasp.

Earrings

STEP 1
Using flush-cutters cut the following lengths of gold-plated 3x2.5mm cable chain.
  • One 2-inch length
  • One 1-1/4 inch length
  • One 3/4 inch length
STEP 2
String the following components onto one gold-plated 2-inch headpin:
  • One Swarovski light blue 8mm crystal pearl
  • One Swarovski crystal aqua 17mm Artemis bead
  • One gold-plated and Swarovski crystal AB 4mm rondelle bead
  • One Swarovski light blue 3mm crystal pearl
Using round-nose pliers, flat-nose pliers and flush-cutters, form a simple loop on the straight end of the wire creating an Artemis bead drop.

Repeat to create a total of three Artemis bead drops.
STEP 3
Using flat-nose pliers and chain-nose pliers, open the loop on one gold-plated earwire and pass it through the first link on all three lengths of chain. Close the loop.
STEP 4
Using flat-nose pliers and chain-nose pliers, open the simple loop on each of the Artemis bead drops and attach them to the last link on each length of chain. Close the loops.

Repeat Steps 1 - 4 to create a second earring.

Ring

STEP 1
Using scissors cut two 6-inch lengths of Powercord®. Give the cord several stretches to condition it.
STEP 2
String thirteen sets of one Swarovski aquamarine AB 4mm bicone bead and the first hole on one Swarovski aqua and gold-plated spacer bar onto one length of Powercord.
STEP 3
Continue stringing the following components:

  • Swarovski aqua and gold-plated spacer bar
  • One gold-plated 9x5mm link
  • Swarovski aqua and gold-plated spacer bar
  • One gold-plated 9x5mm link
STEP 4
Pick up the two ends of the elastic cord. While holding an end of the cording in each hand, overlap the strands of the cording twice to begin a surgeon's knot. Pull the ends of the cording until the knot is cinched down to the beads and forms a circle in the cording, with little space between the two end beads. Overlap the ends of the cording one time. Pull tightly to finish the surgeon's knot. Tighten the knot down to the beads. Add a drop of adhesive to the knot and pull the knot into the hole of a bead. Let glue dry per the manufacturer's recommendation. Once the glue is dry, trim off the excess cord close to the bead.
STEP 5
Repeat Steps 2 through 4 to string the second length of Powercord through the second hole of the spacer bars.
STEP 6
String the following components onto one gold-plated 2-inch headpin:
  • One Swarovski light blue 8mm crystal pearl
  • One Swarovski crystal aqua 12mm Artemis bead
  • One gold-plated and Swarovski crystal AB 4mm rondelle bead

Using round-nose pliers, flat-nose pliers and flush-cutters, form a simple loop on the straight end of the wire creating an Artemis bead drop. Repeat to create a total of nine Artemis bead drops.
STEP 7
Using flat-nose pliers and chain-nose pliers, open the simple loop on one Artemis bead drop. Attach it to the first gold-plated link. Close the loop.

Repeat to attach a total of three Artemis bead drops to each link.
