Instructions

Finished Size 17 3/4"

Step 1: Cut the wire into four pieces: one at 21, one at 15, one at 3, and one at 2 1/2".

Step 2: Use the 21" wire and the 15" wire to string one crimp tube and the bar half of the clasp. Pass back through the tube and crimp.

Step 3: Use the other ends of both wires to string 1 CZ, 1 furnace glass bead, 1 CZ, 1 furnace glass bead, and 1 crimp tube. Place a Bead Stopper on the end of the 15" wire. Use the 21" wire to string 1 CZ, 1 furnace glass bead, and 1 CZ.

Step 4: Use the end of the 21" wire to string 1 crimp tube and the ring half of the clasp. Pass back through the tube and crimp.

Step 5: Place the necklace on your work surface so that the 21" strand is straight. Move the CZs and furnace glass beads aside. Use the ruler to find the center of the wire. Place the crimp tube at the center of the wire and crimp. There should be about 3 1/2" of the 15" wire dangling from the crimp tube.

Step 6: Use the dangling wire to string 1 crimp tube. Place one end of each of the 2 1/2" and 3" wires into the tube and crimp.

Step 7: Use the 3 1/2" wire to string 1 CZ, 1 furnace glass bead, 1 CZ and 1 crimp tube. Place the tube at the very end of the wire and crimp.

Step 8: Use the 3" wire to string 1 CZ and 1 crimp tube. Place the tube at the very end of the wire and crimp.

Step 9: Repeat Step 8 using the 2 1/2" wire.

Step 10: Slide the CZs and furnace glass beads down to the center of the necklace. The two crimp tubes should fit inside the center furnace glass beads and the wires should dangle from one end of that bead.
