Multi-Strand Necklace and Earring Set with Swarovski Crystal, Antiqued Brass-Plated Pewter Cones and Gold-Finished Chain

Necklace

STEP 1
Using flush-cutters, cut one 12-inch length of gold-finished 8mm double-cable chain.
STEP 2
Using flush-cutters, cut six 14-inch lengths of Accu-Flex® professional-quality beading wire.

Match the end of two lengths of beading wire. String onto both wires one crimp tube. Measure 1-1/2 inches from the end of the wires. 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 of one of the wires leaving the second length of wire for attachment later.
STEP 3
String onto the first beading wire:
  • Three ceylon pastel light blue #11 seed beads
  • Fifty Swarovski Provence lavender 4mm bicones
  • Three ceylon pastel light blue #11 seed beads
  • One crimp bead
Place a Bead Stopper™ on the end of the first wire.
STEP 4
String onto the second beading wire:
  • Three ceylon pastel light blue #11 seed beads
  • Fifty-five Swarovski light sapphire AB 4mm bicones
  • Three ceylon pastel light blue #11 seed beads
Remove the Bead Stopper from the first strand.

Pass the ends of the first and second beading wires through the crimp bead.
STEP 5
Pull the wire snugly so the crimp is closer to the last bead on both strands. Make sure there is no slack along the length of the first part of the strands. Place a small amount of adhesive (Loctite) inside the crimp (optional).

Using the crimping pliers, crimp the crimp tube. Using flush-cutters, short end of one of the wires leaving the second length of wire for attachment later.

Repeat Steps 2 - 6 to attach the third strand with:
  • Three transparent rainbow iris blue #11 seed beads
  • Fifty-six Swarovski sapphire 4mm bicones
  • Three transparent rainbow iris blue #11 seed beads

  • Three matte transparent purple #11 seed beads
  • Sixty-six Swarovski purple velvet 4mm bicones
  • Three #11 purple matte seed beads
Repeat to attach the sixth strand with:
  • Three matte transparent purple #11 seed beads
  • Seventy-one Swarovski purple velvet 4mm bicones

STEP 8
Using a pair of chain-nose pliers and flat-nose pliers, open one 4.5mm jumpring. Pass it through the loop on the ring portion of the toggle clasp. Close the jumpring. Repeat to attach the bar portion of the toggle clasp to the first link of the 12-inch length of chain and one 4.5mm jumpring to the last link of the 12-inch length of chain.
STEP 9
Match the three ends of the six strands of beads. Pass the end of the three beading wires through one antiqued brass-plated 24x17x7mm cone, one crimp bead, one gold-plated Accu-Guard™ wire protector and the jumpring on the ring portion of the toggle clasp. Pass the wire back through the crimp tube, pulling the wire tight against the bead cone. Make sure there is no slack along the length of the necklace. Place a small amount of adhesive (Loctite) inside the crimp (optional).

Using the crimping pliers, crimp the crimp tube. Using flush-cutters, trim excess wire from the end. Place a crimp cover over the crimp bead and gently close with chain-nose pliers.
STEP 10
Repeat Step 9 to attach the six strands of beads to the jumpring attached to last link on the 12-inch length of chain.
