Single-Strand Necklace and Earring Set with Bamboo Coral Beads, Gold-Plated Brass Components and Swarovski® Crystals

Necklace

STEP 1
Cut two 1-inch and two 10-inch lengths of 3.5mm chain and one 14-inch length of 24-gauge ParaWire™.
STEP 2
String onto an eye pin: one 4x2mm rondelle, one rose peach shimmer 6mm round and one 4x2mm rondelle then form a simple loop. Repeat to create three links.
STEP 3
String onto an eye pin:

  • One crystal 3mm bicone
  • One gold 4x2mm rondelle
  • One crystal 6mm round
  • One gold 4x2mm rondelle
  • One crystal 3mm bicone

Form a simple loop. Repeat to create a second link.
STEP 4
String onto a head pin:

  • One crystal 3mm bicone
  • One gold 4x2mm rondelle
  • One gold 6mm filigree round
  • One gold 4x2mm rondelle
  • One crystal 3mm bicone

Form a simple loop. Repeat to create a second drop.
STEP 5
Using the length of ParaWire, begin to form a briolette wrapped loop using one bamboo coral teardrop but do not create the second loop yet.

String one crystal 4mm bicone onto the straight end of the wire then finish the second part of the briolette wrapped loop.

Using the other tail of wire, wrap the wire around the bamboo coral teardrop starting from the base of the 4mm bicone, forming a "cone" of wire approximately 1/4 inch long. Trim excess wire from both tails.
STEP 6
Connect the briolette drop to one crystal 6mm link from Step 2. Connect the opposite end of the crystal 6mm link to the center loop on the outside (convex) edge of one 32x8mm filigree component.

Connect one 6mm filigree drop to one crystal 6mm link from Step 2. Connect the opposite end of the link to the second loop on the outside edge of the filigree component. Repeat, connecting the link to the sixth loop on the outside edge of the component.
STEP 7
Pass one jump ring through the last link of one 1-inch length of chain and the third loop on the outside edge of the filigree component from Step 6 then close. Repeat using the fifth outside loop of the filigree component.
STEP 8
Connect the following:

  • One plain 32x8mm filigree component
  • One crystal 6mm link from Step 3
  • The 32x8mm filigree component from Step 7
  • One crystal 6mm link from Step 3
  • One plain 32x8mm filigree component
STEP 9
Using a 4mm jump ring, connect one end of a 10-inch length of chain to the outer loop on the inside edge of one 32x8mm filigree component. Use another 4mm jump ring to connect the opposite end of the length of chain to one half of the toggle clasp.

Repeat on the opposite side to complete the necklace.

Earrings

STEP 1
Cut eight 1-inch lengths of 3.5mm chain and two 14-inch lengths of 24-gauge ParaWire.
STEP 2
String onto an eye pin: one 4x2mm rondelle, one rose peach shimmer 6mm round and one 4x2mm rondelle then form a simple loop. Repeat to create a total of six links.
STEP 3
String onto a head pin:

  • One crystal 3mm bicone
  • One gold 4x2mm rondelle
  • One gold 6mm filigree round
  • One gold 4x2mm rondelle
  • One crystal 3mm bicone

Form a simple loop. Repeat to create a total of four drops.
STEP 4
String onto an eye pin: one 8mm filigree round, one 4x2mm rondelle and one crystal 6mm round then form a simple loop. Repeat to create a second link.
STEP 5
Using the length of ParaWire, begin to form a briolette wrapped loop using one bamboo coral teardrop but do not create the second loop yet.

String one crystal 4mm bicone onto the straight end of the wire then finish the second part of the briolette wrapped loop.

Using the other tail of wire, wrap the wire around the bamboo coral teardrop starting from the base of the 4mm bicone, forming a "cone" of wire approximately 1/4 inch long. Trim excess wire from both tails.

Repeat to create a second briolette drop.
STEP 6
Connect the briolette drop to one crystal 6mm link from Step 2. Connect the opposite end of the crystal 6mm link to the center loop on the outside (convex) edge of one 32x8mm filigree component.

Connect one 6mm filigree drop to one crystal 6mm link from Step 2. Connect the opposite end of the link to the second loop on the outside edge of the filigree component. Repeat, connecting the link to the sixth loop on the outside edge of the component.
STEP 7
Pass one jump ring through the last link of one 1-inch length of chain and the third loop on the outside edge of the filigree component from Step 6 then close. Repeat using the fifth outside loop of the filigree component.
STEP 8
Use a 4mm jump ring to connect one end of a length of chain to the first inside loop of the filigree component. Repeat using the inside loop of the filigree component on the opposite end.

Using the loop on the 8mm filigree round end of the link from Step 4, attach both ends of chain to the loop of the link.

Attach an ear wire to the crystal 6mm round end of the link to complete the earring.
STEP 9
Repeat Steps 6 - 8 to create a second earring.
