Necklace

STEP 1
Using flush-cutters, cut the following:
  • Four 20-inch lengths of Accu-Flex® professional-quality beading wire

STEP 2
String onto one 4-inch length of beading wire one gold-filled 2x2mm crimp bead and the loop on one gold-plated ''vermeil'' and CZ 13mm box clasp. Pass the wire back through the crimp bead pulling the wire snug against the loop. Place a small amount of adhesive (Loctite®) inside the crimp (optional). Using the crimping pliers, crimp the crimp bead. Using flush-cutters, trim the excess wire from the short end. Place a gold-plated 4mm crimp cover over the crimp bead then gently close it.

STEP 4
Open the 12mm gold-plated brass cone to give room for crimping. String on one gold-filled 2x2mm crimp bead, one Accu-Guard™ wire protector and the first link on the 17-inch length of gold-plated chain. Pass the wire back through the crimp bead pulling the wire snug against the wire protector. Place a small amount of adhesive (Loctite) inside the crimp (optional).
