STEP 1
Using flush-cutters, cut the following from 25mm sterling silver coils:
  • Twenty-eight 12mm sterling silver coils
  • Four 5mm sterling silver coils
  • Twelve 7mm sterling silver coils
  • Twelve 10mm sterling silver coils
  • Twenty-eight 20mm sterling silver coils
STEP 2
Using one pair of chain-nose pliers and flat-nose pliers, open a 5mm jumpring. Pass it through the first loop on the box portion of the clasp. Close the jumpring.

Repeat to attach a 5mm sterling silver fancy jumpring to each of the loops on the box portion of the clasp and also on the insert portion of the clasp.

First Strand

STEP 3
Using flush-cutters, cut a 14-inch length of Accu-Flex® professional-quality beading wire. String onto the wire, one crimp tube and a 1/2 inch piece of French wire. Pass the wire through the first jumpring on the box portion of the clasp and back through the crimp tube leaving one end of the wire approximately one inch long. Pull the crimp tight against the French wire and the jumpring so the French wire is formed in a nicely curved tube. 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.
STEP 4
String onto the beading wire the first hole of three 5mm 3-hole spacer bars.

  • One 20mm sterling silver coil
  • Three 5mm 3-hole spacer bars (first hole)
  • One 7mm sterling silver coil

Repeat five times for a total of six sets.

STEP 7

STEP 8
String one crimp tube, 1/2 inch of French wire, and the first jumpring on the insert portion of the clasp onto the beading wire. Pass the beading wire through the crimp, then pull the wire snugly so the crimp and the French wire are 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.
