Necklace

STEP 1
Using flush-cutters, cut one 20-inch length of sterling silver 8x6mm flat cable chain.
STEP 2
String one Swarovski jet AB 10mm round bead onto one silver-plated 2-inch eyepin. Using round-nose pliers and flat-nose pliers begin forming a wrapped loop on the straight end of the wire. Before completing the wrapped loop, pass the wire through the loop on one silver-plated lobster claw clasp.
STEP 3
Using round-nose pliers and chain-nose pliers open the simple loop on the eyepin and attach it to the first link of the 20-inch length of chain. Close the loop.
STEP 4
Using round-nose pliers and flat-nose pliers open one silver-plated 8mm twisted jumpring and attach it to the last link of the 20-inch length of chain.
STEP 5
String the following components onto one silver-plated and Swarovski crystal headpin:
  • One Swarovski jet 12x8mm rondelle bead
  • One silver-plated and Swarovski jet 8mm rondelle bead
  • One Swarovski jet AB 10mm round bead
STEP 6
Using round-nose pliers and flat-nose pliers, form a simple loop on the straight end of the wire creating a Swarovski jet rondelle beading drop.

Repeat to create a total of twelve Swarovski jet rondelle beading drops.
STEP 7
Add one Swarovski jet rondelle beading drop to the 22nd and 24th links of the 20-inch length of chain. Open one silver-plated 8mm twisted jumpring and pass it through the hole on one Swarovski jet 20x20mm cross pendant drop and the 26th link on the 20-inch length of chain.

Continue to add drops and pendant drops to every other link on the chain in this order:
  • Two Swarovski jet rondelle beading drops
  • One Swarovski jet 20x20mm cross pendant drop with jumpring

Using round-nose pliers and flat-nose pliers open one silver-plated 8x6mm oval jumpring and pass it through the loop on one silver-plated 40x22mm beading hoop. Close the jumpring.
STEP 2
Open one silver-plated 8mm twisted jumpring and pass it through the oval jumpring and one Swarovski jet 20x20mm cross pendant drop. Close the jumpring.
STEP 3
Open the hoop on the 40x22mm beading hoop and string on the following components:
  • One Swarovski jet 12x8mm rondelle bead
