Instructions

  1. Cut a piece of the gunmetal double curb chain that is roughly three inches in length. Set this aside.
  2. Cut two pieces of the black artistic wire at five inches long each. Cut a third piece of black artistic wire at one foot long.
  3. Onto each of the five inch long pieces of black artistic wire, create the beginning of a large wrapped wire loop. Before completing the loops, thread them through the jet cosmic ring pendant. Complete both wrapped wire loops and trim off excess wire.
  4. Onto each of the two pieces five inch long black artistic wire (now attached to the cosmic ring pendant), thread an 8mm dark purple Swarovski faux pearl. Create another wrapped wire loop at the opposite end of both pieces of wire and trim off excess.
  5. Thread the one foot long piece of black artistic wire through the Swarovski amethyst baroque pendant, so that the pendant is about halfway down the wire. Create a ninety degree bend in the wire right next to the pendant, so that one half of the wire points upward. Wrap the half of the wire that is protruding from the side tightly around the pendant until the wrapping reaches from the hole to the very tip of the pendant, and wraps around the other half of the wire a few times.
  6. Onto the half of the wire that is sticking upward, thread an 8mm dark purple Swarovski faux pearl. Create the beginning of a large wrapped wire loop. Before completing the loop, thread it through the jet cosmic ring pendant. Complete the wrapped wire loop and trim off excess wire.
  7. Cut a piece of fine beading wire that is one foot long. Secure one end of this wire with a http://www.beadaholique.com/p-10723-bead-stopper-stop-beads-sliding-off-stringing-material.aspx">Bead Stopper.
  8. Onto the wire thread the following:
  9. a 5mm jet Swarovski crystal spacer bead
  10. an 8mm amethyst Swarovski crystal round bead
  11. a 5mm jet Swarovski crystal spacer bead
  12. an 8mm burgundy Swarovski faux pearl
  13. a 5mm jet Swarovski crystal spacer bead
  14. an 8mm dark purple Swarovski faux pearl
  15. a 5mm jet Swarovski crystal spacer bead
  16. an 8mm burgundy Swarovski faux pearl
  17. a 5mm jet Swarovski crystal spacer bead
  18. an 8mm dark purple Swarovski faux pearl.
  19. Repeat this stringing pattern one more time. At the end, add:
  20. a 5mm jet Swarovski crystal spacer bead
  21. one more 8mm amethyst Swarovski crystal round bead
  22. one more 5mm jet Swarovski crystal spacer bead
  23. Onto the end of the strand, thread a gunmetal crimp bead, but do not crimp it yet. Thread the end of the strand through the wrapped wire loop on one of the dark purple faux pearl links connected to the cosmic ring. Thread the strand back through the crimp tube, pull snug, and crimp.
  24. Remove the Bead Stopper from the opposite end of the strand. Once again, thread a crimp bead, but do not crimp it yet. Thread the end of the strand through a double link at one end of the long piece of double curb chain. Thread the strand back through the crimp tube, pull snug, and crimp.
  25. Open a gunmetal jump ring and thread it through the other end of the long piece of double curb chain, and also through the wrapped wire loop on the other dark purple faux pearl link connected to the cosmic ring. Close this jump ring once more.
  26. Thread an 8mm burgundy faux pearl onto a gunmetal headpin and create a wrapped loop on the end. Trim off excess wire.
  27. Open two more gunmetal jump rings. Thread one of these jump rings through the wrapped wire loop at the top of the burgundy pearl drop and also through the double link at one end of the three inch long piece of double curb chain. Close this jump ring.
  28. Thread the other jump ring through the other end of the three inch long piece of double curb chain and also through the large wrapped loop containing the dark purple faux pearl and the amethyst baroque pendant. Close this jump ring.
  29. Finally, place a crimp bead cover over each of the crimp beads, and gently squeeze them shut.
