Instructions

  1. Take a gold ball head pin and thread onto it 1 Swarovski 4mm crystal bicone bead. Create a simple wire loop and cut off excess wire with your flush cutters. Open the simple wire loop the same way you would open a jump ring and attach it to one of the hidden loops behind the leaves on your tree of life pendant. Close the loop back up. Repeat this step twice, making 2 more dangles and attaching them to the other two loops behind the leaves. Set aside.
  2. Cut a 22 inch length of your gold beading wire. Place a bead stopper at one end.
  3. Thread onto your beading wire: 1 gold crimp tube, 1 Swarovski 4mm bicone bead, 1 Czech charlotte bead in gold. Repeat 3 more times. Next, thread onto it 1 oval cultured pearl, 1 Swarovski 4mm bicone bead.
  4. Repeat the following beading pattern 4 times: 1 oval cultured pearl, 1 Czech charlotte bead in gold, 1 oval cultured pearl, 1 Swarovski 4mm bicone bead.
  5. Repeat the following pattern 2 times: 1 oval cultured pearl, 1 gold crimp tube (DO NOT CRIMP), 1 oval cultured pearl, 1 Swarovski 4mm bicone bead.
  6. Thread onto your wire the tree of life pendant, threading it through the loop at the trunk of the tree.
  7. String the other side of your necklace making it a mirror image of the first half, ending in a crimp tube.
  8. Now thread one end of your wire through the loop on one section of your toggle clasp. Thread the wire back through your crimp tube and the Swarovski crystal next to it. Pull snug and crimp the crimp bead. Cut off excess beading wire.
  9. Go to the other side of your necklace and remove the bead stopper. Attach the other half of your toggle clasp to this side the same way you did in the previous step.
  10. Enjoy making many wonderful memories wearing this necklace.
