Single-Strand Necklace and Earring Set with Pyrite and Golden Sheen Obsidian Gemstone Beads, Mother-of-Pearl Shell Beads and Swarovski Crystal

Necklace

STEP 1
String the following components onto one gold-plated 2-inch headpin:
  • One mother-of-pearl shell white 20mm heart bead
  • One Swarovski crystal aurum 2X 4mm bicone bead
  • One gold-plated and Swarovski crystal AB 4mm rondelle bead
  • One Swarovski jet nut 2X 6mm bicone bead
Using round-nose pliers and flat-nose pliers, create a simple loop on the straight end of the wire creating a mother-of-pearl shell heart beading drop.

Repeat to create a total of six mother-of-pearl shell beading drops.
STEP 2
Using flush-cutters, cut one 21-1/2 inch length of Accu-Flex® professional-quality beading wire.
STEP 3
String on to the beading wire one gold-plated 2x2mm crimp bead and the loop on the box portion of one gold-plated 10mm box 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.

String the following beads onto the beading wire:
  • One Swarovski jet nut 2X 6mm bicone bead
  • One gold-plated and Swarovski crystal AB 4mm rondelle bead
  • Thirty-two pyrite 4mm round beads
