Single-Strand Necklace and Earring Set with Swarovski® Crystals and Silver-Plated Copper Focals

Necklace

STEP 1
Cut one 24-inch length of beading wire.

Attach a 4mm jumpring to two aquamarine 11x5.5mm briolettes and the top loop (on branch) on two 32x23mm 5-leaf focals.

STEP 2
String onto the beading wire: one crimp and one Accu-Guard™ wire protector. Pass the beading wire back through the crimp.
