Edwardian elegance is brought out in this 20th century era style utilizing silver plated filigree, Swarovski pearls and crystals.
- Start the beginning of a wire wrapped loop with the 3 inch piece of 24 gauge wire (WCR-4416). Link the Swarovski briolette (SWC-4709) onto the loop. Close the loop.
Thread an 8mm pearl (SWP-8001) onto the wire. Link the wire onto bottom/center of the silver plated filigree (PND-5708). Close loop and cut off excess wire.
Place a small dab of glue around the perimeter back side of the Swarovski rivoli (SWC-9320). Set the rivoli onto the filigree circle (FCO-5010) making sure to center it. Set aside for about 20 minutes. This cement does NOT dry instantly -- you have at least 5 minutes to make adjustments before the glue starts to set. For maximum strength bond, allow 24-72 hours for complete curing.
Now place some glue onto the back of the filigree circle that holds the rivoli. Set the circle onto the upper center of the large filigree piece (see photo) for placement.
Cut a piece of Softflex wire 12 inches in length. Secure one end with a bead stopper. Thread the beads on in the following order:
- two 8mm Swarovski pearls
- one 2mm Swarovski crystal (SWC-0031)
- one 3mm Swarovski pearl (SWP-3001)
- another 2mm Swarovski crystal
- two 5mm Swarovski pearls (SWP-5001)
- one 2mm Swarovski crystal
- another 5mm Swarovski pearl
- and another 2mm Swarovski crystal.
Repeat this pattern 3 more times. Thread on two more 8mm Swarovski pearls. Repeat for the other side.
Onto the end of the strand thread a crimp bead (FCR-1122), but do not crimp it yet. Thread the wire through and around the wire guard (FCR-4149). Thread the strand through the top hole on either side of the filigree piece. Make sure the filigree is sitting evenly in the wire guard (see photo). Now thread the wire back through the crimp bead and several of the consecutive beads. Pull the beading wire snug, and crimp the crimp bead. Trim excess beading wire from this end.
Remove the Bead Stopper from the other end of the strand. Repeat the previous step. This time through either the lobster clasp or the chain.
I added a small dangle onto the end of the chain. Thread a 5mm pearl, a 2mm crystal, a 3mm pearl and another 2mm crystal onto a head pin (FHP-3217). Wire wrap onto the end link of the chain. Cut off excess wire. You're finished!

Tip: Check package quantities for each component. You may have extra material to make more than one finished project, or will have leftovers for other projects. In some cases, adding on just one more package of a component may be all you need to make multiple pieces.
