Single-Strand Necklace and Earring Set with Swarovski Crystal, Imitation Rhodium-Finished "Pewter," Epoxy and Swarovski Crystal Pendants and Silver-Plated Brass Beads

Necklace

STEP 1
Mix Devcon® 5 Minute® Epoxy according to manufacturer’s instructions. Place a thin layer of adhesive on the inside rim of the 20mm pendant setting and on the back of the Swarovski crystal golden shadow 20mm chessboard round flat back. Press the flat back into the mounting. Let the adhesive set for 5 minutes. Make sure to use proper ventilation when using this product. Repeat to create five crystal golden shadow flat back mounted pendants.
STEP 2
Using a pair of chain-nose pliers and bent-nose pliers, open a 5.5mm jumpring. Pass it through the loop on the lobster claw clasp. Close the jumpring. Repeat to attach one 5.5mm jumpring to one 8mm jumpring.
STEP 3
Using flush-cutters, cut a 20-inch length of Accu-Flex® professional-quality beading wire. String onto the wire: one crimp tube, one silver-plated Accu-Guard™ wire protector and the jumpring attached to the first loop on the insert portion of the clasp. Pass the wire back through the crimp tube, leaving one end of the wire approximately 1-inch long. Pull the crimp tight against the Accu-Guard. Place a small amount of adhesive (Loctite®) inside the crimp (optional).

Using the crimping pliers, crimp the crimp tube. Using flush-cutters, trim the excess wire from the short end.

Place a crimp cover over the crimp tube then gently close it.
STEP 4
String onto the beading wire the following:
  • Thirteen Swarovski light Siam 8mm round beads
  • One Swarovski crystal AB and silver-plated rondelle bead
  • One Swarovski light Siam 8mm round bead
  • One Swarovski crystal AB 4mm bicone bead
  • One silver-plated 8mm stardust round bead
  • Four sets of:
    • One Swarovski crystal AB 4mm bicone bead
    • The bail on one crystal golden shadow flat back mounted pendant (positioning it over the 4mm bicone bead)
    • One silver-plated 8mm stardust round bead
    • One Swarovski crystal AB 4mm bicone bead
    • One Swarovski crystal AB and silver-plated 4mm rondelle bead
    • One Swarovski light Siam 8mm round bead
    • One Swarovski crystal AB and silver-plated 4mm rondelle bead
    • One Swarovski crystal AB 4mm bicone bead
    • One silver-plated 8mm stardust round bead
  • One Swarovski 4mm bicone crystal AB crystal
  • The bail on one crystal golden shadow flat back mounted pendant (positioning it over the 4mm bicone bead)

  • One Swarovski crystal AB 4mm bicone bead
  • One Swarovski light Siam 8mm round bead
  • One Swarovski crystal AB and silver-plated 4mm rondelle bead
  • Thirteen Swarovski light Siam 8mm round beads
STEP 5
Continue to string on one crimp tube, one silver-plated Accu-Guard and the 5.5mm jumpring attached to the 8mm jumpring. Pass the wire back through the crimp tube, pulling the wire tight against the Accu-Guard and the jumpring. Make sure there is no slack along the length of the necklace. Place a small amount of gel adhesive inside the crimp (optional).

Using the crimping pliers, crimp the crimp tube. Using flush-cutters, trim excess wire from the end.

Place a crimp cover over the crimp tube then gently close it.

Earrings

STEP 1
String one Swarovski light Siam 8mm round bead onto a headpin. Using a pair of chain-nose pliers, round-nose pliers and flush-cutters, form a simple loop on the straight end of the wire. Repeat to create ten Swarovski light Siam 8mm round bead drops.
STEP 2
Using a pair of chain-nose pliers and bent-nose pliers, open a 4mm jumpring. Pass it through the loop on one Swarovski light Siam 8mm round bead drop and the first loop on one silver-plated 23mm hoop earring. Close the jumpring. Repeat to attach one Swarovski light Siam 8mm round bead drop to each of the loops on the hoop earring.
