Instructions

Step 1: Cut 23" of Emerald wire. Place a Bead Stopper at one end of the wire. Use the other end of the wire to string *one 2mm x 2mm crimp tube, the first hole of 1 bead frame, 1 peridot rondelle, the second hole of the bead frame, and one 2mm x 2mm crimp tube. Repeat from * four times. Place a Bead Stopper on the other end of the wire.

Step 2: Center the middle bead frame on the wire and crimp the crimp tubes snugly on each side of the bead frame. Cover both crimps with crimp covers. Repeat for the other bead frames, making sure to place each bead frame 2" from the previous bead frame. Remove Bead Stoppers.

Step 3: Cut 23" of Peridot wire. Place a Bead Stopper at one end of the wire. Use the other end of the wire to *pass through the first bead fame on the Emerald wire by passing the Peridot wire from the bottom to the top and then top to bottom through the bottom half of the bead frame. String 3 Peridot rondelles. Repeat from * four times, omitting stringing the final 3 Peridot rondelles. Place a Bead Stopper on the other end of the wire.

Step 4: Cut 23" of Chrysoprase wire. Repeat Step 3, omitting the Peridot rondelles, and passing the Chrysoprase wire through the top half of each bead frame.

Step 5: Adjust the Peridot wire so that it is slightly longer that the Emerald wire between each bead frame. Adjust the Chrysoprase wire so that it is slightly shorter than the Emerald wire between each bead frame.

Step 6: Remove Bead Stoppers. Use all three wires to string one 3mm x 3mm crimp tube and one half of the clasp. Pass back through the tube. Adjust the wires so that the crimp tube is 2 1/4" from the previous crimp tube, and crimp. Repeat entire step for the other end of the necklace.

Step 7: Use Cutters to cut the end off of the head pin. Form a wire wrapped loop. String 1 Peridot rondelle and form a wire wrapped loop. Use 1 jump ring to attach 1 wire wrapped loop to the center bead frame on the necklace. Use 1 jump ring to attach the other wrapped loop to 1 bead frame.
