Triple-Strand Necklace with Swarovski Crystal and Gold-Plated Brass Cones and Chain

STEP 1
Using flush-cutters cut the following:
  • One 32-inch length of Accu-Flex® professional-quality beading wire
  • Two 4-inch lengths of Accu-Flex beading wire
  • One 31-inch length of gold-plated 8.5mm flower with 6mm round chain
  • One 22-inch length of gold-plated 5.5mm flat round with diamond cutout chain
STEP 2
Mix Araldite® Standard Epoxy according to manufacturer's instructions. Place a thin layer of adhesive on the back of one Swarovski crystal AB 23x23mm square fancy stone and a small amount inside one gold-plated 25x25mm square setting. Press the stone into the setting creating a Swarovski crystal square drop. Let the adhesive set for 90 minutes. Make sure to use proper ventilation when using this product.
STEP 3
String onto one 32-inch length of beading wire one gold-filled 2x2mm crimp bead. Pass the beading wire back through the crimp bead creating a loop (approximately 1/8 inch) 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. Using flush-cutters trim the excess from the short end. Place one gold-plated 4mm crimp cover over the crimp bead then gently close it.
STEP 4
String the following onto the beading wire:
  • Five gold-plated 4mm smooth rounds
  • One Swarovski crystal clear and gold-plated 4x2mm rondelle
  • One Swarovski white 8mm round pearl
  • One Swarovski crystal clear and gold-plated 4x2mm rondelle
  • Five gold-plated 4mm smooth rounds
  • One Swarovski crystal clear and gold-plated 4x2mm rondelle
  • One Swarovski white 11x8mm pear pearl (small end facing rondelle)
  • One gold-plated 9x6mm basket bead cap (open end facing pear pearl)
  • One Swarovski crystal AB and gold-plated 6x3.5mm rondelle
  • One gold-plated 9x6mm basket bead cap (open end facing away from rondelle)
  • One Swarovski white 11x8mm pear pearl (large end facing bead cap)
  • One Swarovski crystal clear and gold-plated 4x2mm rondelle
Repeat this stringing sequence a total of nine times.

Continue to string the following:
  • Five gold-plated 4mm smooth rounds
  • One Swarovski crystal clear and gold-plated 4x2mm rondelle
  • One Swarovski white 8mm round pearl
  • One Swarovski crystal clear and gold-plated 4x2mm rondelle
  • Five gold-plated 4mm smooth rounds

Repeat Step 3 to create a loop on the end of the beading wire.
STEP 7
String the following onto one 4-inch length of beading wire:
  • One gold-filled 2x2mm crimp bead
  • The loop on one end of the strung 32-inch length of beaded wire
  • The first link on one 31-inch length gold-plated 8.5mm flower with 6mm round chain
  • The first link on one 22-inch length gold-plated 5.5mm flat round with diamond cutout chain
STEP 8
Pass the beading wire back through the crimp bead 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 flush-cutters trim the excess from the short end.
STEP 9
String the following onto the opposite end of the 4-inch length of beading wire:
  • Two gold-plated 12mm fancy filigree cones (large end facing crimp, covering secured lengths of chain and beading wire)

  • The loop on the bar portion of one gold-plated 16mm round toggle clasp

Repeat Step 7 to add and crimp a crimp bead. Place one gold-plated 4mm crimp cover over the crimp bead then gently close it.
STEP 11
String onto the 22-inch length gold-plated 5.5mm flat round with diamond cutout chain, the Swarovski crystal square drop from Step 2.
