Single-Strand Necklace with Swarovski Crystal, Cubic Zirconia Beads and Gold-Plated Brass Cones

STEP 1
Using flush-cutters, cut the eye off of one gold-plated 2-inch eyepin. Using E-6000® Jewelry and Craft Adhesive, glue one straight end of the wire into one half-drilled cubic zirconia black 20x7mm teardrop. Allow glue to dry.

String onto the straight end of the wire one gold-plated 12x5mm cone. Using round-nose pliers and flat-nose pliers, form a wrapped loop on the straight end of the wire creating a cubic zirconia teardrop beading drop.

Repeat to create a total of four cubic zirconia teardrop beading drops.
STEP 2
Using flush-cutters, cut one 18-inch length of Accu-Flex® professional-quality beading wire.
STEP 3
String on to the beading wire one gold-filled 2x2mm crimp bead and the loop on the bar portion of the gold-plated toggle 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.
