Necklace

STEP 1
Using scissors cut five 20-inch lengths and five 12-inch lengths of white Purely Silk™ thread.

Using flush-cutters cut three 4-inch lengths of Accu-Flex® professional-quality beading wire.
STEP 2
Thread a needle with one 20-inch length of thread. String onto the thread, one 12Kt gold-filled 2x2mm crimp bead. Pass the thread back through the crimp bead creating a small loop (approximately 1/8 inch) and leaving about 1/4 inch of thread on the end.

Place a small amount of adhesive (Loctite®) inside the crimp (optional). Using crimping pliers crimp the crimp bead and, using scissors, trim the excess thread from the short end.
STEP 3
Re-thread needle onto long end of the thread then string the following onto the thread:
  • One Swarovski creamrose light 4mm pearl
  • One Swarovski and gold-plated crystal AB 4x2mm rondelle
  • One Swarovski crystal metallic light gold 2X 6mm bicone
  • One Swarovski and gold-plated crystal AB 4x2mm rondelle
Repeat this stringing sequence a second time.
STEP 4
Continue to string ninety-six Swarovski creamrose light 4mm pearls.
STEP 5
Repeat the stringing sequence in Step 3 backwards to finish stringing the strand.
STEP 6
Repeat Step 2 to finish the strand.
STEP 7
Repeat Steps 2 - 6 to create a total of five strands.
STEP 8
String onto one 4-inch length of beading wire, one 12Kt gold-filled 2x2mm crimp bead. Pass the beading wire through the loop on one end of each of the five beaded strands and back through the crimp bead. Pull the beading wire so the crimp rests snug against the loops, gathering the five strands and leaving approximately 1/4 inch of beading wire on the end.

Place a small amount of adhesive (Loctite) inside the crimp (optional). Using crimping pliers crimp the crimp bead and using flush-cutters, trim the excess thread from the short end.
STEP 9
String the following onto the long end of the 4-inch section of beading wire:
  • One gold-plated 16x16mm filigree cone (open end covering the five gathered ends of the strands)
  • One Swarovski and gold-plated crystal AB 4x2mm rondelle
  • One Swarovski crystal metallic light gold 2X 6mm bicone
  • One 12Kt gold-filled 2x2mm crimp bead
  • One gold-plated Accu-Guard™ wire protector
  • One gold-plated 12x7mm lobster claw clasp
Pass the beading wire back through the crimp bead, the Swarovski crystal metallic light gold 2X 6mm bicone and the Swarovski and gold-plated crystal AB 4x2mm rondelle. Pull the beading wire so the crimp rests snug against the Accu-Guard leaving approximately 1/4 inch of beading wire on the end. Place a small amount of adhesive (Loctite) inside the crimp (optional).

Using crimping pliers crimp the crimp bead and using flush-cutters, trim the excess from the short end of the wire as close to the Swarovski and gold-plated crystal AB 4x2mm rondelle as possible.
STEP 10
Repeat Steps 8 and 9 to finish the other end of the necklace.

Focal

STEP 1
Pass one Swarovski and gold-plated headpin through one Swarovski creamrose light 10mm pearl and one gold-plated 42x42mm fancy flower (curved side facing the pearl).
STEP 2
Using chain-nose pliers, round-nose pliers and flush-cutters form a simple loop on the straight end of the wire. Fold the loop down so it rests flat against the pearl.
STEP 3
Place a small amount of E-6000® Jewelry and Craft Adhesive around the base of the pearl to secure it in place.

Place a small amount of E-6000 Jewelry and Craft Adhesive on the simple loop and position one gold-finished 6x1.5mm flower bead cap over the simple loop. Set aside to dry.

Tassel

STEP 1
Using chain-nose pliers, gently press the center petals of five gold-finished 11x6mm roses open so they are large enough for an 8mm bicone to rest in the center of the bead.
STEP 2
String the following onto one Swarovski and gold-plated headpin:
  • One gold-finished 11x6mm rose (flower end facing away from the end of the headpin)
  • One Swarovski crystal metallic light gold 2X 6mm bicone
  • One Swarovski and gold-plated crystal AB 4x2mm rondelle
  • One Swarovski creamrose light 4mm pearl
Using a pair of chain-nose pliers, round-nose pliers and flush cutters form a wrapped loop on the straight end of the wire creating a Swarovski and rose drop.

Repeat to create a total of five Swarovski and rose drops.
STEP 3
String onto one 12-inch length of thread, one 12Kt gold-filled 2x2mm crimp bead and the loop on one Swarovski and rose drop. Pass the thread back through the crimp bead. Pull the thread tight so the crimp rests snug against the loop of the drop leaving approximately 1/4 inch of beading wire on the end.

Place a small amount of adhesive (Loctite) inside the crimp (optional). Using crimping pliers crimp the crimp bead. Using scissors, trim the excess thread from the short end.
STEP 4
String the following onto the thread:
  • One Swarovski creamrose light 4mm pearl
  • One Swarovski and gold-plated crystal AB 4x2mm rondelle
  • One Swarovski crystal metallic light gold 2X 6mm bicone
  • One Swarovski and gold-plated crystal AB 4x2mm rondelle
Repeat this stringing sequence a second time.
STEP 5
Continue to string forty-five Swarovski creamrose light 4mm pearls.
STEP 6
Repeat the stringing sequence in Step 4 backwards to finish stringing the strand.
STEP 7
String onto the thread, one 12Kt gold-filled 2x2mm crimp bead. Pass the thread back through the crimp bead creating a small loop and leaving about 1/4 inch of thread on the end.

Place a small amount of adhesive (Loctite) inside the crimp (optional). Using crimping pliers crimp the crimp bead. Using scissors, trim the excess thread from the short end.
STEP 8
Repeat Steps 3 - 7 to create a total of five strands.

Note: When repeating Step 5 for strands 2 and 3, remove three Swarovski creamrose light 4mm pearls to graduate the strands of the tassel. When repeating Step 5 for strands 4 and 5, remove five Swarovski creamrose light 4mm pearls to continue graduating the strands.
STEP 9
String onto one 4-inch length of beading wire, one 12Kt gold-filled 2x2mm crimp bead. Pass the beading wire through the loop on one end of of the five strands and back through the crimp bead. Pull the beading wire so the crimp rests snug against the loops, gathering the five strands and leaving approximately 1/4 inch of beading wire on the end.

Place a small amount of adhesive (Loctite) inside the crimp (optional). Using crimping pliers crimp the crimp bead and using flush-cutters, trim the excess wire from the short end.
STEP 10
String the following onto the long end of the 4-inch section of beading wire:
  • One gold-plated 16x16mm filigree cone (open end covering the five gathered ends of the strands)
  • One Swarovski and gold-plated crystal AB 4x2mm rondelle
  • One Swarovski crystal metallic light gold 2X 6mm bicone
  • One 12Kt gold-filled 2x2mm crimp bead
  • One gold-plated Accu-Guard wire protector
  • One gold-plated 12x7mm lobster claw clasp
Pass the beading wire back through the crimp bead, the Swarovski crystal metallic light gold 2X 6mm bicone and the Swarovski and gold-plated crystal AB 4x2mm rondelle. Pull the beading wire so the crimp rests snug against the Accu-Guard leaving approximately 1/4 inch of beading wire on the end. Place a small amount of adhesive (Loctite) inside the crimp (optional).

Using crimping pliers crimp the crimp bead and using flush-cutters, trim the excess from the short end of the wire as close to the Swarovski and gold-plated crystal AB 4x2mm rondelle as possible.

Earrings
