Instructions

Step 1: Use one end each of the Spinel, Citrine, and Purple Amethyst wires to string one 3mm crimp tube and the bottom hole of 1 Paloma Link. Pass back through the tube and crimp. Trim the wire ends.

Step 2: Use the Spinel wire to string one 2mm crimp tube, 1 light topaz cube, two 2mm crimp tubes, 1 topaz cube, two 2mm crimp tubes, 1 light topaz cube, two 2mm crimp tubes, 1 Siam cube, two 2mm crimp tubes, 1 light amethyst cube, and one 2mm crimp tube. Place a Bead Stopper on the wire. Set aside.

Step 3: Use the Citrine wire to string one 2mm crimp tube, 1 amethyst cube, two 2mm crimp tubes, 1 Siam cube, two 2mm crimp tubes, 1 light topaz cube, two 2mm crimp tubes, 1 amethyst cube, two 2mm crimp tubes, 1 light amethyst cube, two 2mm crimp tubes, 1 topaz cube, two 2mm crimp tubes, 1 Siam cube, two 2mm crimp tubes, 1 light amethyst cube, and one 2mm crimp tube. Place a Bead Stopper on the wire. Set aside.

Step 5: Remove the Bead Stoppers. Use all three wire ends to string 1 crimp tube and the bottom hole of 1 Paloma Link. Adjust the wires so that there is 10 1/2" of Spinel wire between the 3mm crimp tubes, 11 3/4" of Citrine wire between the 3mm crimp tubes, and 13 1/4" of Purple Amethyst wire between the 3mm crimps, and crimp.

Step 6: Adjust the beads and crimps on the Spinel wire so that groups of crimp tube, cube, and crimp tube are evenly spaced 1-1 12/" apart on the wire. Crimp the 2mm crimp tubes on the Spinel wire.

Step 7: Adjust the beads and crimps on the Citrine wire so that groups of crimp tube, cube, and crimp tube are evenly spaced 3/4-1" apart on the wire. Crimp the 2mm crimp tubes on the Citrine wire.

Step 8: Adjust the beads and crimps on the Purple Amethyst wire so that groups of crimp tube, cube, and crimp tube and evenly spaced 1-1 3/4" apart on the wire. Crimp the 2mm crimp tubes on the Purple Amethyst wire.



Step 9: Use three 9" pieces of 925 Sterling Silver wire to string one 3mm crimp tube and the top hole of 1 Paloma link. Pass back through the tube and crimp. Braid the wires for 4 1/2". Use all three wires to string 1 crimp tube and one half of the toggle clasp. Pass back through the tube and crimp, making sure there are 4 1/2" of wire between crimp tubes.



Step 10: Repeat Step 9 for the other half of the necklace.
