Instructions

Step 1: Place head pin through 1 yellow bead, then the flower bead, and then another bead.

Step 2: Place the German Small Flat/Round Looping Pliers flat nose side directly on top of the bead, and bend a right angle in the wire.

Step 3: Place your round nose side of the pliers on top of the right angle and bend the wire gently but firmly around the form. This will make a complete circle, with a “tail” at the end.

Step 4: Hold the circle with your German Small Flat/Round Looping Pliers, so that it doesn’t get deformed, and gently but firmly use your chain nose pliers to turn the tail around the shank, forming horizontal coils. You should only do about 1½ to 2 coils. Cut off excess wire. You now have a pendant.

Step 5: Cut three strand of Soft Touch™ Wire, about 20” each, off of the spool.

Step 6: String all three strands of wire through the loop of the flower pendant.

Step 7: String 12 yellow beads on each strand of wire, on each side of the flower.

Step 8: String all three strands on each side of the flower through one bicone bead.

Step 9: Repeat steps 7 and 8 until you have 3 sections of yellow beads & 2 bicone beads on each side of the necklace.

Step 10: Starting on one side of the necklace, string each strand of Soft Touch™ through a crimp, through the clasp and then back through the crimp. Pull the wire tight and adjust the size of the loop so that the clasp can move back and forth freely.

Step 11: Secure crimp using crimping pliers.

Step 12: Cut off excess wire at the crimp using Soft Flex® Flush Cutters.
