Necklace

STEP 1
Mix Araldite® Standard Epoxy according to manufacturer’s instructions. Place a thin layer of adhesive on the inside center of one antiqued silver-plated 32x22.5mm pear focal setting and on the back of one Swarovski dark moss green 30x20mm pear fancy stone. 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 a pair of chain-nose pliers and bent-nose pliers, open four silver-plated 4mm jumprings.

Pass one 4mm jumpring through the loop on the Swarovski and antiqued silver-plated 32x22.5mm pear focal. Close the jumpring. Pass one 4mm jumpring through the previous jumpring and the loop on one antiqued silver-plated 12x10mm bail. Close the jumpring.
STEP 3
Using flush-cutters cut three 20-inch lengths of Accu-Flex® professional-quality beading wire.
STEP 4
String onto one 20-inch length of beading wire one sterling silver 2x2mm crimp bead. Pass the beading wire back through the crimp bead creating a small loop (approximately 1/8 inch) and leaving approximately 1/4 inch of 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.
STEP 5
String onto the 20-inch length of beading wire approximately one hundred and sixteen Swarovski dark red coral 4mm rounds.

Repeat Step 4 to secure the strand.
STEP 6
Repeat Step 4 and 5 to create a total of three Swarovski dark red coral strands.
STEP 7
Open the loop on one silver-plated 2-1/2 inch eyepin. Pass the loop through the loop on one end of each of the three Swarovski dark red coral strands. Close the loop.
STEP 8
String onto the straight end of the eyepin one antiqued silver-plated 13x10mm filigree cone (open end covering the ends of the dark red coral strands) and one Swarovski dark red coral 4mm round.

Using a pair of chain-nose pliers, round-nose pliers and flush-cutters form a wrapped loop on the straight end of the wire.
STEP 9
Pass one 4mm jumpring through the wrapped loop and the loop on one portion of one antiqued silver-finished 18mm beaded toggle clasp. Close the jumpring.
STEP 10
String onto the opposite ends of the dark red coral strands the bail on the Swarovski and antiqued silver-plated 32x22.5mm pear focal.
STEP 11
Repeat Steps 7 - 9 to secure the loops on the opposite ends of the dark red coral strands.

Tip: If desired use a toothpick to apply a small of epoxy to the Swarovski dark red coral rounds in the center of the necklace and inside of the bail to secure the focal in place.
