Single-Strand Necklace and Earring Set with Swarovski Crystal, Gold-Plated "Pewter" Pendant and Gold Plated Brass Components

Necklace

STEP 1
Mix Araldite® Standard Epoxy according to manufacturer's instructions. Place a thin layer of the adhesive on the back of one Swarovski rose 30x22mm oval fancy stone and a small amount on the inside of one gold-plated 30x22mm rectangle pendant setting. Press the stone into the setting. Let the adhesive set for 90 minutes. Make sure to use proper ventilation when using this product.
STEP 2
Using flush-cutters cut one 22-inch length of Accu-Flex® professional-quality beading wire.

String the following onto the beading wire:
  • One copper 2x2mm crimp bead
  • One Swarovski crystal rose AB 6mm round
  • One copper 2x2mm crimp bead
  • One gold-plated Accu-Guard™ wire protector
  • The loop on one gold-plated swivel lobster claw clasp
Pass the beading wire back through the second crimp bead, the Swarovski rose AB round and the crimp bead. Pull the beading wire so the second crimp rests snug against the Accu-Guard 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 both crimp beads. Using flush-cutters, trim the excess from the short end of the beading wire. Place one gold-plated stardust 4mm crimp cover over one crimp bead then gently close it. Repeat to cover the second crimp bead.
STEP 3
String the following onto the beading wire:
  • Sixteen Swarovski rose AB 6mm rounds
  • One gold-plated Swarovski crystal AB 6mm rondelle
  • One Swarovski rose 10mm bicone
  • One gold-plated Swarovski crystal AB 6mm rondelle
  • One Swarovski denim blue 12mm rondelle
  • One gold-plated 11x6mm bead cap
  • One Swarovski golden shadow 18mm rondelle
  • One gold-plated 11x6mm bead cap
  • One Swarovski denim blue 12mm rondelle
  • One gold-plated Swarovski crystal AB 6mm rondelle
  • One Swarovski rose 10mm bicone
  • One gold-plated Swarovski crystal AB 6mm rondelle
  • Continue to string three sets of the following:
    • One gold-plated 8x4mm fancy bead cap
    • One Swarovski denim blue 12mm rondelle
  • Continue to string the following:
    • One gold-plated 8x4mm fancy bead cap
    • One gold-plated stardust 6mm round
    • One gold-plated Swarovski crystal AB rondelle
    • One Swarovski rose AB 8mm bicone
STEP 4
Continue to string the gold-plated Swarovski rose fancy oval pendant created in Step 1.
STEP 5
Repeat the stringing sequence in Step 3 in the opposite direction to string the second half of the necklace.
STEP 6
Repeat Step 2 using one gold-plated 8mm round jumpring to terminate the straight end of the wire.

Earrings

STEP 1
String the following onto one gold-plated 2.5-inch headpin:
  • One gold-plated 11x6mm bead cap
  • One Swarovski golden shadow 18mm rondelle
  • One gold-plated 8x4mm fancy bead cap
  • One Swarovski denim blue 12mm rondelle
  • One gold-plated 8x4mm fancy bead cap
Using chain-nose pliers, round-nose pliers and flush cutters create a simple loop on the straight end of the wire creating a rondelle bead drop. Repeat to create a second drop.
STEP 2
On one gold-plated 2.5-inch eyepin string one Swarovski rose AB 8mm bicone. Create a wrapped loop on the straight end of the wire creating a bicone link.

Repeat to create a second link.
STEP 3
Using chain-nose pliers and bent-nose pliers, open the loop on one drop created in Step 1. Thread the loop through the eyepin loop of one rose AB bicone link. Close the loop.
STEP 4
Open the loop on one gold-plated leverback earwire. Pass the loop through the wrapped loop of the rose AB bicone link. Close the loop.
STEP 5
Repeat Steps 3 and 4 to create a second earring.
