Necklace

STEP 1
Using flush-cutters cut one 19-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 and one 5mm gold-plated round jumpring. 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 crimp cover over the crimp bead then gently close it.
STEP 3
String the following onto the beading wire:
  • One Swarovski 6mm iridescent green round
  • Repeat this sequence to string a total of three sets:
    • One gold-plated and Swarovski 4mm rondelle
    • Five Swarovski 6mm tangerine rondelles
  • Repeat this sequence to string a total of two sets:
    • One gold-plated and Swarovski 4mm rondelle
    • One Swarovski 6mm tangerine rondelles
    • One gold-plated and Swarovski 4mm rondelle

  • One Swarovski 6mm tangerine rondelles
  • One gold-plated and Swarovski 4mm rondelle

Repeat the sequence in this step to string a total of eleven sets.

Continue to string one Swarovski 3mm metallic light gold bicone then repeat the stringing sequence in Step 3 in reverse order to finish stringing the necklace.
STEP 7
Open one 5mm jumpring and pass it through the loop on one gold-plated lobster claw clasp. Close the jumpring.

Repeat Step 2 to attach the lobster claw clasp.
STEP 8
Open one 7x5mm gold-plated oval jumpring and the round jumpring from Step 2 and pass it through a second oval jumpring. Close the jumpring. Repeat to connect a total of five oval jumprings creating an extender chain.

Earrings

STEP 1
Using flush-cutters, cut two 3-inch lengths of 20-gauge dead-soft Jeweler's Bronze wire.
STEP 2
String onto one end of the wire one Swarovski 11x10mm peacock briolette. Using round-nose and chain-nose pliers form a briolette wrapped loop on the wire, leaving a long tail on the straight end of the wire.
STEP 3
String onto the straight end of the wire one Swarovski 6mm tangerine rondelle and one gold-plated and Swarovski rondelle. Using round-nose and chain-nose pliers form a wrapped loop on the straight end of the wire creating a briolette drop.
STEP 4
Using round-nose and chain-nose pliers open one 5mm gold-plated jumpring. Pass the jumpring through the wrapped loop on the briolette drop and the loop on one gold-plated 6mm earstud. Close the jumpring.

Repeat Steps 2 - 4 to create a second earring.
