Single-Strand Necklace and Earring Set with Swarovski Crystal

Necklace

STEP 1
Using flush-cutters cut one 24-inch length of Accu-Flex® professional-quality beading wire.
STEP 2
Using a pair of chain-nose pliers and bent-nose pliers open two gold-plated 5mm jumprings and one gold-plated 6mm jumpring.

Pass one 5mm jumpring through the loop on the bar portion of one gold-plated 18mm textured toggle clasp. Close the jumpring. Attach a second 5mm jumpring to the previous 5mm jumpring.

Pass one 6mm jumpring to the loop on the ring portion of the toggle clasp.
STEP 3
String the following onto the beading wire:
  • One sterling silver 2x2mm crimp bead
  • One Accu-Guard™ wire protector
  • The last jumpring on the bar portion of the toggle clasp
STEP 4
Pass the beading wire back through the crimp bead. Pull the beading wire so the 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 the crimp bead. Using flush-cutters trim the excess from the short end of the beading wire. Place one gold-plated 4mm crimp cover over the crimp bead then gently close it.
STEP 5
String onto the beading wire one Swarovski sapphire AB 6mm round and one Czech glass metallic gold #11 seed bead. Repeat this sequence to string a total of three sets.
STEP 6
Continue to string the following:
  • Repeat this sequence to string three sets:
    • One Swarovski sapphire AB 6mm round
    • One Czech glass metallic gold #11 seed bead
  • One Swarovski sapphire AB 6mm round
  • One Swarovski crystal golden shadow and gold-plated 6x3.5mm rondelle
  • Repeat this sequence to string three sets:
    • One Swarovski crystal red magma 12x8mm rondelle
    • One Swarovski sapphire and gold-plated 12x4.5mm rondelle
  • One Swarovski crystal red magma 12x8mm rondelle
  • One Swarovski crystal golden shadow and gold-plated 6x3.5mm rondelle
Repeat the sequence in this step to string a total of eight sets.

STEP 8
String the following onto the beading wire:
  • One sterling silver 2x2mm crimp bead
  • One Accu-Guard wire protector
  • The 6mm jumpring on the ring portion of the toggle clasp
Repeat Step 4 to secure the strand.
