Single-Strand Necklace and Earring Set with Swarovski Crystal and Gold-Plated Brass Beads and Bead Caps


Necklace

STEP 1
Using flush-cutters cut one 42-inch length of Accu-Flex® professional-quality beading wire.
STEP 2
String onto the beading wire one gold-filled 2x2mm crimp bead and one Accu-Guard™ wire protector. Pass the beading wire back through the crimp bead. 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. Using flush-cutters trim the excess from the short end of the beading wire. Place one gold-plated 4mm corrugated crimp cover over the crimp bead then gently close it.
STEP 3
String onto the beading wire twelve sets of seven gold-plated 5x1mm twisted liquid gold beads and one Swarovski Siam 3mm round.
STEP 4
Continue to string the following:
  • Three sets of one gold-plated 6mm bead cap, one Swarovski white 8mm pearl, one gold-plated 6mm bead cap and one Swarovski Siam 3mm round
  • Two sets of one gold-plated 9mm bead cap, one Swarovski white 10mm pearl, one gold-plated 9mm bead cap and one Swarovski Siam 3mm round
  • One set of one gold-plated 10mm bead cap, one Swarovski white 12mm pearl, one gold-plated 10mm bead cap and one Swarovski Siam 3mm round
  • Two sets of one gold-plated 9mm bead cap, one Swarovski white 10mm pearl, one gold-plated 9mm bead cap and one Swarovski Siam 3mm round
  • Three sets of one gold-plated 6mm bead cap, one Swarovski white 8mm pearl, one gold-plated 6mm bead cap and one Swarovski Siam 3mm round
STEP 5
String onto the beading wire twelve sets of seven gold-plated 5x1mm twisted liquid gold beads and one Swarovski Siam 3mm round.

Continue to string one Swarovski Siam 3mm round.
STEP 6
Repeat Step 2 with the addition of passing the Accu-Guard through one gold-plated 12x5mm lobster claw clasp before crimping to terminate the strand.

Earrings

STEP 1
String onto one gold-plated 1-inch headpin:
  • One gold-plated 6mm bead cap
  • One Swarovski white 6mm pearl

  • One Swarovski Siam 3mm round
  • One gold-plated 3mm bead cap

STEP 2
Using a pair of chain-nose pliers, round-nose pliers and flush-cutters form a simple loop on the straight end of the wire creating a Swarovski pearl drop.
STEP 3
Using a pair of chain-nose and bent-nose pliers open the loop on the Swarovski pearl drop and pass it through the loop on one gold-plated ball post with loop earstud. Close the loop.

Repeat to create a second earring.
