Single-Strand Necklace and Earring Set with Crystal Passions® Pearls and Wirework

Necklace

STEP 1
Cut a 22-inch length of 16-gauge wire. Cut three 12-inch lengths of 26-gauge wire.
STEP 2
Wrap the 22-inch wire around a circular object approximately 1 inch in diameter.

Wrap the wire once more, this time approximately 1/4-inch larger. Repeat so there are three circles that gradually get larger.
STEP 3
Using the working end of the wire, form a small loop approximately 1/4 inch in diameter at the top of the circles. Wrap the tail around the top of the circles twice.

Wrap the beginning end of wire inside the loop in the opposite direction until you reach the other end of the wire.
STEP 4
Pick up a 12-inch wire. Wrap four times along the side of the first circle.

String a peach pearl. Wrap once around the circle. Repeat using 15 peach pearls then wrap four times around the circle to secure the beads, as seen in the image above.
STEP 5
Repeat Step 4 using 14 rose gold and 14 rose peach pearls on the second and third circle.
STEP 6
Open a jump ring. Slide onto the loop created in Step 3. Close the jump ring. Repeat to add two additional jump rings. Pass the chain through the jump rings to complete the necklace.

Cut two 9-inch lengths of 16-gauge wire. Cut two 12-inch lengths of 26-gauge wire.
STEP 2
Pick up one 9-inch wire. Wrap around a circular object approximately 1 inch in diameter. When you reach the beginning of the wire, bend the working end in the opposite direction to form a small loop approximately 1/4-inch in diameter. Wrap the end of the wire around the inside of the loop and the top of the circle three times.
STEP 3
