Necklace

STEP 1

Note: Complete instructions for using the Miracle Mount system are located in the resource section below.
STEP 2
Place a small amount of adhesive onto the square peg end of one loop peg. Press the peg into the top (12-o'clock) on the outer edge of the Miracle Mount.

Repeat to set a tile peg into the remaining positions around the edges of the Miracle Mount.

Tip: Let the adhesive set for 5 minutes on each step. Make sure to use proper ventilation when using this product.

STEP 5
String onto the beading wire: one crimp, one Accu-Guard™ wire protector and the loop on one lobster claw clasp. Pass the beading wire back through the crimp. Pull the beading wire so the crimp rests snug against the Accu-Guard leaving approximately 1/4 inch of beading wire on the end.

Crimp, then trim the excess from the short end of the beading wire. Finish with a 4mm crimp cover.

Repeat Step 5 to secure the strand.
