Necklace

STEP 1
Cut one 17-inch length of Accu-Flex® professional quality beading wire and two 1/2 inch lengths of French wire.

Attach one 4mm jumpring to each portion of the toggle clasp.
STEP 2
Pass one 5.5mm jumpring through one 11x9.5mm apple with leaves charm and one 15mm twisted jumpring then close. Repeat to create a total of six apple drops.
STEP 3
String onto the beading wire: one crimp, one length of French wire and the jumpring on one portion of the clasp. Pass the beading wire back through the crimp. Pull the beading wire so the crimp rests snug against the French wire leaving approximately 1/4 inch of beading wire on the end. Crimp, then trim the excess from the short end of the beading wire.
STEP 4
String onto the beading wire:
  • 16 sets of:
    • One emerald 4mm bicone
    • One silver-plated brass 3x2mm rondelle (your choice of star, corrugated or smooth)
  • Seven sets of:
    • One emerald 6mm bicone
    • One silver-plated brass 3x2mm smooth rondelle
    • One emerald 4mm bicone
    • One crimp
    • One apple drop
    • One emerald 4mm bicone
    • One silver-plated brass 3x2mm smooth rondelle
Continue to string one emerald 6mm bicone onto the beading wire, then repeat the above stringing sequence in the opposite direction to string the second half of the strand.

Repeat Step 3 to secure the strand.
