Single-Strand Necklace and Earring Set with White Lotus™ Pearls, Mystic Topaz Gemstone Beads and Swarovski® Crystals

Necklace

STEP 1
Cut a 36-inch length of Accu-Flex® professional-quality beading wire and a 4-inch length of long and short chain.
STEP 2
String a paradise shine 3mm bicone and a mauve 6mm rice pearl onto a head pin then create a simple loop.

Use a 4mm jump ring to add the drop to the last link of the length of chain.
STEP 3
String a crimp and an Accu-Guard™ wire protector onto the beading wire. 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, trim the excess wire and add a crimp cover.
STEP 4
String the following onto the beading wire:
  • One pearl
  • The first hole of an 8.5mm spacer bar
  • Three 3mm bicones
Pass through the second hole of the spacer bar in the opposite direction and pull the wire tight to create a half circle with the 3mm bicones.

Repeat 15 more times.

STEP 5
String the following onto the beading wire:
  • One pearl
  • The first hole of a spacer bar
  • One 3mm bicone
  • One mystic topaz teardrop
  • One 3mm bicone
Pass through the second hole of the spacer bar in the opposite direction and pull the wire tight.

Repeat 5 more times.

STEP 6
Repeat Steps 3 and 4 in reverse to complete the beaded strand.
STEP 7
Use 4mm jump rings to add a lobster claw clasp to one end of the necklace and the first link of the length of chain to the other end.

Earrings

STEP 1
Cut two 6-inch lengths of 24-gauge wire.
STEP 2
String a mystic topaz teardrop onto a length of wire. Position the teardrop approximately 1 inch from the end of the wire.

Bring both sides of the wire together above the tip of the teardrop, then wrap the short end around the long end three times. Trim any excess wire from the short end.

STEP 3
String a mauve 6mm rice pearl onto the straight end of the wire then create a simple loop.

STEP 4
Repeat Steps 2 and 3 to create a second drop.
STEP 5
Add an ear wire to the simple loop of each drop.
