Instructions

  1. Cut a 22" piece of gold beading wire and place a bead stopper 3" from the end.
  2. String onto your wire 1 gold crimp bead and 12 SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS crystal round faux pearls 5mm in Turquoise.
  3. Next string 1 Tierracast gold plated hammertoned 6mm bead cap, 1 SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS crystal round faux pearl 8mm in coral, another 6mm bead cap, and a SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS crystal round faux pearl 5mm in Turquoise. Repeat this segment another 3 times (giving you a total of 4 of these segments).
  4. Now string 1 6mm bead cap, 1 SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS crystal round faux pearl 8mm in coral, another 6mm bead cap, 1 Beadelle Collection 10mm crystal pave bead in turquoise, another 6mm bead cap, 1 SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS crystal round faux pearl 10mm in coral, another 6mm bead cap, another 10mm crystal pave bead in turquoise, 1 Tierracast gold plated hammertoned 9mm bead cap, 1 SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS crystal round faux pearl 12mm in coral, another 9mm bead cap, and 1 Beadelle Collection 14mm crystal pave bead in turquoise.
  5. Make the second half of your necklace a mirror image of the first with the 14mm crystal pave bead as the center point.
  6. Next, thread your wire through both loops of a thread and wire protector. Before taking your wire back through your crimp bead, slip the loop at the back of your toggle bar into the curve of your wire protector. Now thread your wire back through the crimp bead and several beads next to it. Crimp the crimp bead and cut off excess wire with flush cutters.
  7. Go to the other side of your necklace and repeat the last step with the toggle part of your clasp. Make sure to pull snug before you crimp your crimp bead so that all the beads are aligned together with no large gaps.
  8. For the final step, apply a crimp bead cover over both of your crimp beads.
  9. Enjoy!
