Single-Strand Necklace and Earring Set with Swarovski Crystal

Necklace

STEP 1
Using flush-cutters cut one 3-inch length of gold-finished 4mm rolo chain.
STEP 2
String one gold-plated 3x1mm bead cap, one Swarovski crystal golden shadow 6mm round and one gold-plated 3x1mm bead cap onto the straight end of 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 to create one Swarovski crystal golden shadow 6mm round bead drop.

Repeat to create one Swarovski crystal red magma 4mm bicone bead drop using one gold-plated 3x1mm bead cap, one Swarovski crystal red magma 4mm bicone, one gold-plated 3x1mm bead cap and one headpin.
STEP 3
Using a pair of chain-nose pliers and flat-nose pliers, open a 4.5mm jumpring. Pass it through the loop on the lobster claw clasp. Close the jumpring. Open a 4.5mm jumpring. Pass it though the loop on the lobster claw clasp next to the first 4.5mm jumpring. Close the jumpring.
STEP 4
Using flush-cutters, cut a 21-inch length of Accu-Flex® professional-quality beading wire. String onto the wire: one crimp tube and a 3/4 inch piece of French wire. Pass the wire through the jumpring attached to the clasp and back through the crimp tube leaving one end of the wire approximately 1 inch long. Pull the crimp tight against the French wire and the jumpring so the French wire is formed in a nicely curved tube. 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.

Earrings

STEP 1
String one gold-plated 3x1mm bead cap, one Swarovski crystal golden shadow 6mm round and one gold-plated 3x1mm bead cap onto the straight end of 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 to create two Swarovski crystal golden shadow 6mm round bead drops.
STEP 2
String one Swarovski crystal red magma 18mm helix pendant onto the straight end of a headpin. Using a pair of chain-nose pliers and round-nose pliers, bend the wire at a 90 degree angle, 5mm from the head on the pin. Continue to form the straight end of the wire in an 8mm ''U'' shape. Form a simple loop on the end of the U-shaped wire. Open the loop and pass it between the head of the eyepin and the crystal to secure the end of the ''U'' shape wire. Repeat to create two Swarovski crystal red magma 18mm helix pendant wire bead drops.
STEP 3
Using a pair of chain-nose pliers and flat-nose pliers, open the loop on an earwire. Pass it through the loop on top of one Swarovski 6mm round golden shadow crystal bead drop. Close the loop. Open the opposite loop on the Swarovski crystal golden shadow 6mm round bead drop. Pass it through the top of the U-shaped wire on one Swarovski crystal red magma 18mm helix wire bead drop.
STEP 4
Repeat Step 3 to create the second earring.
