Single-Strand Necklace and Earring Set with Swarovski Crystal

Necklace

STEP 1
Mix Devcon® 5 Minute® Epoxy according to manufacturer's instructions. Place a thin layer of adhesive on the inside of the gold-plated 16.5x12.5mm mounting and on the back of the Swarovski Montana 14x10mm step-cut rectangle fancy stone. Press the fancy stone into the mounting. Let the adhesive set for 5 minutes. Make sure to use proper ventilation when using this product.
STEP 2
Using a pair of chain-nose pliers and flat-nose pliers, open a 6mm twisted jumpring. Pass it through the loop on the ring portion of the toggle clasp. Close the jumpring.

Open one 4mm jumpring. Pass it through the loop on the bar portion of the toggle clasp. Close the jumpring.

Open one 6mm jumpring. Pass it through the loop on the Montana fancy stone mounted drop.
STEP 3
Using flush-cutters, cut a 20-inch length of Accu-Flex® professional-quality beading wire. String onto the wire: one crimp tube, one 14Kt gold-filled Accu-Guard™ and the jumpring attached to the lobster claw clasp. Pass the wire back through the crimp tube, leaving one end of the wire approximately 1-inch long. Pull the crimp tight against the Accu-Guard. Place a small amount of adhesive (Loctite®) inside the crimp (optional).

Using the crimping pliers, crimp the crimp tube. Using flush-cutters, trim the excess wire from the short end.

Place a crimp cover over the crimp tube then gently close it.
