Using flush-cutters cut one 17-inch length of Zebra Wire™ gold color-coated 22-gauge wire.
Place a pair of chain-nose pliers in the center of the 17-inch length of wire. Pull the wire down on both sides of the pliers forming two tight 90-degree angles in the wire, creating a U shape.
String onto one gold-plated 1-inch headpin, one Swarovski ruby 4mm bicone and one Swarovski ruby 3mm bicone.
Using a pair of chain-nose pliers and round-nose pliers, form a simple loop on the straight end of the wire creating a Swarovski drop.
Using a pair of chain-nose pliers and round-nose pliers open three gold-plated 6x4mm oval jumprings. Pass one 6x4mm jumpring through the loop on the Swarovski drop and one gold-plated 4mm jumpring. Close the jumpring.
Pass a second 6x4mm jumpring through the previous gold-plated 4mm jumpring and a second gold-plated 4mm jumpring. Close the jumpring. Attach a third 6x4mm jumpring to the gold-plated 4mm jumpring just added, creating a five jumpring extender chain.
String onto one end of the 17-inch length of wire, the last jumpring on the extender chain from Step 4.
String onto each end of the wire, one end of one Swarovski and gold-plated Siam 8x6mm single-stone spacer bar and one Swarovski Siam 3mm bicone. Repeat this stringing sequence a total of twenty-six times.
Continue to string onto each end of wire, one end of one Swarovski and gold-plated Siam 8x6mm single-stone spacer bar.
Using a pair of chain-nose pliers and round-nose pliers wrap both ends of the wire around one side of a gold-plated 6x4mm oval jumpring twice creating a double simple loop. Using flush-cutters trim the excess from the wire.
Attach the loop on one gold-plated 9x5mm lobster claw clasp to the 6x4mm jumpring from Step 7.
