Spring Sunrise Necklace
Designer: Julie Bean
Fresh and bright, this pretty necklace shimmers like the morning rays of sunshine on a Spring garden. The delicate sterling silver chain supports a bounty of Swarovski Crystal wave beads and pearls.
- Start by deciding how long you want your necklace to be. For this design I chose 16", so I cut my beading chain to 15" because the clasp is going to add an inch. Use your flush cutters to cut your chain.
Thread the tail of one end of chain into the Sterling Silver crimp bead with the single loop. Push the tail into the crimp bead so that it is just to the point of coming out the other end, but it does not. Crimp the crimp bead.
String onto the other end of your beading wire, string 1 Swarovski Crystal 19mm wave bead in crystal luminous green, 1 Swarovski Crystal 8mm round pearl in rose peach, another wave bead, another pearl, etc... until you have strung all your wave beads and a total of 9 pearls.
On the other end of your beading chain, attach another crimp bead with single loop and crimp the bead.
Open a Sterling Silver 6mm jump ring and attach it to one of your crimp beads with loop. Before closing the jump ring, also link onto it another 6mm jump ring. Close the ring. Open a third jump ring and attach it to the second jump ring you linked, creating a chain of 3 jump rings. Close the jump ring.
On the other side of your necklace, attach a 6mm jump ring to the crimp bead. Close the jump ring. Open another 6mm jump ring and link it to the one you just attached and also link onto it the loop at the base of your Sterling Silver spring ring clasp. Close the jump ring.
All done. Enjoy!

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.
