Single-Strand Necklace with Swarovski Crystal, Black Onyx Gemstone Beads and Gold-Finished Beads

STEP 1
Using Araldite® Standard Epoxy, glue one Swarovski jet 27x18.5mm emerald-cut fancy stone into one gold-plated 29x21mm rectangle drop setting.

Set aside and allow to dry.
STEP 2
Using flush-cutters, cut one 19-inch section of Accu-Flex® professional-quality beading wire.
STEP 3
String on to the beading wire one gold-filled 2x2mm crimp bead and the loop on the ring portion of the toggle clasp. Pass the wire back through the crimp bead pulling the wire snug against the loop. Place a small amount of adhesive (Loctite®) inside the crimp (optional). Using the crimping pliers, crimp the crimp bead. Using flush-cutters, trim the excess wire from the short end. Place a gold-plated 4mm crimp cover over the crimp bead then gently close it.
STEP 4
String the following beads onto the beading wire:
  • Three black onyx 8mm round beads
  • One gold-plated and Swarovski crystal AB 4mm rondelle bead
