Single-Strand Necklace and Earring Set with Swarovski Crystal and TierraCast® Gold-Plated Pewter Drops

Necklace

STEP 1
Mix a small amount of Devcon® 5 Minute® Epoxy. Using a toothpick apply a small amount of epoxy to the center of the bezel on one gold-plated 14mm round rivoli drop setting and to the back of one Swarovski dark moss green 14mm rivoli creating a Swarovski dark moss green 14mm rivoli drop. Place the rivoli into the bezel, press and hold it there for a few seconds. Set aside and allow to cure for 5 minutes.

Repeat to create a total of three Swarovski dark moss green 14mm rivoli drops.
STEP 2
Using flush-cutters cut one 18-inch length of Accu-Flex® professional-quality beading wire.
STEP 3
Using a pair of chain-nose pliers and bent-nose pliers open two gold-plated 4mm jumprings and three gold-plated 5.5mm jumprings.

Pass one jumpring through the loop on one portion of one gold-plated 10mm twisted toggle clasp. Close the jumpring. Repeat to attach a jumpring to the second portion of the toggle clasp.
STEP 4
Pass one 5.5mm jumpring through the loop on one Swarovski dark moss green 14mm rivoli pendant. Close the jumpring. Repeat to attach one 5.5mm jumpring to a total of three Swarovski dark moss green 14mm rivoli pendants.
STEP 5
String the following onto the beading wire:
  • One silver-plated 2x2mm crimp bead
  • One Accu-guard™ wire protector
  • The 4mm jumpring attached to one portion of the toggle clasp
STEP 6
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.
