STEP 1
Using flush-cutters cut one 22-inch length and one 20-inch length of Accu-Flex® professional-quality beading wire.
STEP 2
String one Swarovski vintage gold 6mm pearl onto one gold-plated 2-1/2 inch headpin. Using a pair of chain-nose pliers, round-nose pliers and flush-cutters form a wrapped loop on the straight end of the wire creating a 6mm pearl drop.
STEP 3
Using a pair of chain-nose pliers and bent-nose pliers open three gold-plated 6mm jumprings.

Pass one 6mm jumpring through the loop on the 6mm pearl drop and a second 6mm jumpring. Close the jumpring.

Pass one 6mm jumpring through the last 6mm jumpring and an additional 6mm jumpring. Close the jumpring creating a Swarovski pearl extender chain.

STEP 5
String onto the 22-inch length of beading wire one gold-filled 2x2mm crimp bead and the last jumpring on the lobster claw clasp.
STEP 6
Pass the beading wire back through the crimp bead. Pull the beading wire so the crimp rests snug against the jumpring leaving approximately 1/4 inch of beading wire on the end. Place a small amount of adhesive (Loctite®) inside the crimp (optional).

Using crimping pliers crimp the crimp bead. Using flush-cutters trim the excess from the short end of the beading wire. Place one gold-plated 4mm stardust crimp cover over the crimp bead then gently close it.
STEP 7
String onto the beading wire one Swarovski vintage gold 6mm pearl and one gold-filled 2x2mm crimp bead.

Pass the end of the 20-inch length of beading wire through the crimp bead so approximately 1/4 inch sticks out the opposite end. Crimp the crimp bead. Trim the excess 1/4 inch of beading wire from the 20-inch length of beading wire. Do not trim the 22-inch length of beading wire. Place one gold-plated 4mm stardust crimp cover over the crimp bead.
