Single-Strand Necklace and Earring Set with Swarovski Crystal and Dione® Large-Hole Beads

Necklace

STEP 1
String onto one eyepin:
  • One Swarovski crystal aurum 2X 6mm bicone
  • One Swarovski jet and gold-plated 4mm rondelle
  • One Swarovski aquamarine AB 4mm bicone
  • One Swarovski jet and gold-plated 4mm rondelle
  • One Swarovski crystal aurum 2X 6mm bicone
Using a pair of chain-nose pliers, round-nose pliers and flush-cutters form a simple loop on the straight end of the wire to create one beading link. Repeat to create five aurum 2X and aquamarine bead links.
STEP 2
Using a pair of chain-nose pliers and flat-nose pliers, open a 6mm twisted jumpring. Pass it through the loop on the lobster claw clasp. Close the jumpring.

Open an 8mm jumpring. Pass it through the loop on the end of one crystal aurum 2X and aquamarine AB beading link and the hole on one Swarovski crystal golden shadow 22mm pear pendant. Repeat to attach one Swarovski crystal golden shadow 22mm pear pendant to the end of each of the aurum 2X and aquamarine AB beading links.
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 gold-plated Accu-Guard™ wire protector and the jumpring attached to the lobster claw 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.
