Instructions

  1. Begin by cutting two 18" lengths, two 12" lengths, and two 7" lengths of medium weight sterling silver beading wire.
  2. Take one of the 7" lengths of wire and slide a 1.5 mm silver plated crimp tube onto the end. Then thread the end through one of the side loops on a silver plated pewter celtic knot connector. Fold the wire back about half an inch and slide the loose end through the crimp tube as well. Bring the crimp tube close to the connector and use a crimp tool to secure the crimp tube. Using a pair of flush cutters, carefully trim the loose end of wire close to the end of the crimp tube.
  3. Use this method to attach the other side of the connector to one end of a 12" length of wire.
  4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 to attach the second connector to a 7" and a 12" length of wire.
  5. Line up these two lengths of wire with the connectors on opposite sides - see photo. Then line up these lengths with the two 18" lengths of wire.
  6. Attach the eight 8 mm Swarovski clover beads and the two 12 mm Swarovski clover beads to the four wires by securing a crimp tube on either side of each bead. Scatter the placement of the clover beads across the length of the wire and between the four strands. See photo for detailed placement information.
  7. Carefully line up the ends of one side of the necklace and insert them into a 2 x 3 mm silver plated crimp cord end. Use the crimp tool to secure the crimp cord end.
  8. Repeat with the ends of the other side of the necklace.
  9. Use a 5 mm, 20 gauge silver plated jump ring to attach a silver plated lobster clasp to one of the crimp cord ends. Attach a second jump ring to the crimp cord end on the other side.
