Single-Strand Necklace, Bracelet and Earring Set with Swarovski Crystal

Necklace

STEP 1
Mix Devcon® 5 Minute® 2-part epoxy according to manufacturer's instructions. Apply a thin layer to the center of one gold-plated 32x22.5mm pear focal setting and a small amount to the back of one Swarovski crystal AB 30x20mm pear fancy stone embellishment. Place the pear fancy stone inside the pear focal setting. Set aside to dry.

Repeat to create the following components:
  • Twelve silver-finished and Swarovski ultra purple AB 14mm rivoli drops
  • Two gold-finished and Swarovski ultra purple AB 14mm rivoli drops
STEP 2
Using a pair of chain-nose pliers and bent-nose pliers open three silver-plated 8x6mm jumprings, twelve silver-plated 5.5mm jumprings and one gold-plated 5.5mm jumpring.

Attach one silver-plated 5.5mm jumpring to the loop on each rivoli drop and one gold-plated 5.5mm jumpring to the loop on the Swarovski pear fancy stone focal.

Pass one open 8x6mm jumpring through two closed 8x6mm jumprings. Close the jumpring. Repeat adding three more 8x6mm jumprings creating an extender chain.
STEP 3
Using flush-cutters cut one 20-inch length of Accu-Flex® professional-quality beading wire.
STEP 4
String the following onto the beading wire:
  • One copper 2x2mm crimp bead
  • One Accu-guard™ wire protector
  • The loop on one silver-plated 12x7mm lobster claw clasp
Pass the beading wire back through the crimp bead. Pull the beading wire so the crimp rests snug against the loop of the clasp 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 silver-plated 4mm stardust crimp cover over the crimp bead then gently close it.
STEP 5
String the following onto the beading wire:
  • One Swarovski violet opal 6mm round
  • One Swarovski crystal AB 4x2mm rondelle
  • Twenty Swarovski tanzanite 6mm rounds
  • Repeat this stringing sequence for a total of four sets:
    • One Swarovski crystal AB 4x2mm rondelle
    • One Swarovski violet opal 6mm round
    • The jumpring on one Swarovski ultra purple AB 14mm rivoli drop
    • One Swarovski violet opal 6mm round
    • One Swarovski crystal AB 4x2mm rondelle
    • One Swarovski tanzanite 6mm round
  • One Swarovski violet opal 6mm round
STEP 6
Continue to string the jumpring on the Swarovski pear fancy stone focal.
STEP 7
Repeat the stringing sequence in Step 5 in the opposite direction to string the second half of the necklace.

Repeat Step 4 to attach the last jumpring on one end of the extender chain and secure the necklace.

Using crimping pliers crimp the crimp bead. Using flush-cutters trim the excess from the short end of the beading wire. Place one silver-plated 4mm stardust crimp cover over the crimp bead then gently close it.
