Instructions

Finished Size: 22"



Step 1: Use both ends of 5" of Peridot wire to string one 2mm x 2mm crimp tube. Place the tube near the center of the wire, forming a small loop. Crimp the tube. Use one end of the wire to string 2 Peridot rondelles and one 1mm x 1mm crimp tube. Use Micro Crimpers to crimp the tube 3/4" from the end of the wire. String 1 Peridot rondelle and one 1mm x 1mm crimp tube. Crimp the tube at the very end of the wire. Use the other end of the wire to string 3 Peridot rondelles and one 1mm x 1mm crimp tube. Crimp the tube 3/4" from the end of the wire. String 1 Peridot rondelle and one 1mm x 1mm crimp tube. Crimp the tube at the very end of the wire. Repeat three times to make a total of four dangles. Set aside.

Step 2: Use 3" of Emerald wire to string one 2mm x 2mm crimp tube. Pass back through the tube, forming a small loop, and crimp. String 1 Emerald simple cut stone and one 2mm x 2mm crimp tube. Snug the beads up to the previous tube and crimp. String 1 Peridot rondelle and one 1mm x 1mm crimp tube. Crimp the tube at the very end of the wire. Repeat to make a second dangle. Set aside.

Step 3: Use both ends of 5" of Peridot wire to string one 2mm x 2mm crimp tube. Adjust the wire ends so that one is 1 1/4" longer than the other. Push the tube to form a small loop of wire and crimp. Use the short end of the wire to string 2 Peridot rondelles and one 1mm x 1mm crimp tube. Crimp the tube at the very end of the wire. Use the long end of wire to string 5 Peridot rondelles and one 1mm x 1mm crimp tube. Place the tube 1/2" from the end of the wire and crimp. String 1 Peridot rondelle and one 1mm x 1mm crimp tube. Crimp the tube at the very end of the wire. Repeat to make a second dangle. Set aside.

Step 4: Use 4" of Chrysoprase wire to string one 2mm x 2mm crimp tube. Pass back through the tube, forming a small loop, and crimp. String 1 Chrysoprase slab and one 2mm x 2mm crimp tube. Place the tube 1 3/4" from the end of the wire and crimp. String 3 Peridot rondelles and one 1mm x 1mm crimp tube. Place the tube 1/2" from the end of the wire and crimp. String 1 Peridot rondelle and one 1mm x 1mm crimp tube. Crimp the tube at the very end of the wire. Repeat to make a second dangle. Set aside.

Step 5: Cut 30" of each color of wire. Use all three wires to string 1 African Chrysoprase faceted oval to the center of the wires (the width of the three wires together will keep the stone from moving back and forth).

Step 6: Use all three wires to string 1 dangle from Step 1, 1 dangle from Step 4, 1 dangle from Step 3, 1 dangle from Step 2, and 1 dangle from Step 1.

Step 7: Use the Emerald and Peridot wires to string one 2mm x 2mm crimp tube and 1 Chrysoprase slab. Place the tube 3/4" from the African Chrysoprase faceted oval and crimp. Use the Emerald wire to string one 1mm x 1mm crimp tube, 1 Emerald simple cut stone, one 1mm x 1mm crimp tube, and 1 Emerald simple cut stone. Place the first crimp tube 1 1/4" from the Chrysoprase slab and crimp. Place the second crimp tube 1 1/4" from the previous tube and crimp. Use the Emerald and Peridot wires to string one 2mm x 2mm crimp tube and 1 Chrysoprase slab. Place the tube 1 7/8" from the previous crimp tube and crimp.

Step 8: Use the Chrysoprase wire to string one 1mm x 1mm crimp tube and 1 Peridot rondelle. Repeat twice. Place the first 1mm x 1mm crimp tube 2 1/2" from the end of the African Chrysoprase oval and crimp. Place the second tube 1 1/4" from the previous tube and crimp. Place the third tube 1 1/4" from the previous tube and crimp.

Step 9: Use the Chrysoprase and Peridot wires to string one 2mm x 2mm crimp tube and 1 African Chrysoprase oval. Place the tube 1 1/2" from the last 2mm x 2mm crimp tube used in Step 7 and crimp.

Step 10: Use all three wires to string one 3mm x 3mm crimp tube and one half of the clasp. Pass back through the tube, making sure that the tube is about 2" from the last 2mm x 2mm crimp tube used, and crimp.

Step 11: Repeat Steps 6-10 for the other half of the necklace.
