Single-Strand Necklace and Earring Set with Cubic Zirconia and Gold-Finished Brass Links and Crystal Passions® Beads

Necklace

STEP 1
Cut two 10-inch lengths of Accu-Flex® professional-quality beading wire.
STEP 2
String a dark indigo 3mm bicone, a Pacific opal 4mm round and a second dark indigo 3mm bicone onto an eye pin then create a simple loop.

Repeat to create a second beaded link.
STEP 3
Use 4mm jump rings to connect the following components:
  • A 27x4mm cubic zirconia link
  • A beaded link
  • A 15mm round cubic zirconia link
  • A beaded link
  • A 27x4mm cubic zirconia link
STEP 4
Add a jump ring to the unused loops of each 27x4mm link added in Step 3.

Repeat to add a 4mm jump ring to each half of a toggle clasp.
STEP 5
String a crimp, an Accu-Guard™ wire protector and the jump ring attached to a 27x4mm link added in Step 3 onto the beading wire. Pass the beading wire back through the crimp. Pull the beading wire so the crimp rests snug against the Accu-Guard leaving approximately 1/4 inch of beading wire on the end. Crimp, trim the excess from the short end of the beading wire then add a crimp cover.
STEP 6
String 11 sets of a Pacific opal 6mm round, a Pacific opal 4mm round, a dark indigo 3mm bicone and a 2.5mm gold-plated brass round.
STEP 7
String a crimp, an Accu-Guard™ wire protector and the jump ring added to one half of the toggle clasp onto the beading wire. Repeat Step 5 to secure the strand.
STEP 8
Repeat Steps 5 - 7 to create the second half of the necklace.
