Instructions

Finished Size: 20 1/2"


Step 1: Place a small amount of adhesive inside the bowl of 1 rivoli setting link. Push 1 crystal rivoli into the setting link. Repeat twice for a total of three links. Let dry.

Step 2: Use 2 jump rings to attach 1 rivoli link to 1 rivoli link. Use 2 jump rings to attach the previous rivoli link to 1 rivoli link. Set aside.



Step 3: Cut three 15" pieces of wire. Use all three pieces to string 1 mighty crimp tube and the bar half of the toggle clasp. Pass back through the tube and crimp. Cover the crimp tube with 1 crimp cover.

Step 4: Braid the three wires together for 9 1/4". Use all three wires to string 1 mighty crimp tube and the open loop of 1 rivoli link. Pass back through the tube and crimp. Cover the crimp tube with 1 crimp cover. Set aside.

Step 5: Cut one 11" piece of wire, one 13" piece of wire and one 15" piece of wire. Use one end each of all three wire pieces to string 1 mighty crimp tube and the ring half of the clasp. Pass back through the tube and crimp. Cover the crimp tube with 1 crimp cover.

Step 6: Use the 11" wire to string 1 micro crimp tube, 1 glass coin, 2 micro crimp tubes, 1 glass coin, and 1 micro crimp tube. Place a Bead Stopper on the end of the wire.

Step 7: Use the 13" wire to string 1 micro crimp tube, 1 glass coin, 2 micro crimp tubes, 1 glass coin, 2 micro crimp tubes, 1 glass coin, and 1 micro crimp tube. Place a Bead Stopper on the end of the wire.

Step 8: Use the 15" wire to string 1 micro crimp tube, 1 glass coin, 2 micro crimp tubes, 1 glass coin, and 1 micro crimp tube.

Step 9: Remove the Bead Stoppers placed in Steps 6 and 7. Use all three wire ends to string 1 mighty crimp tube and the open loop of the other rivoli link. Pass back through the tube and crimp. Cover the crimp tube with 1 crimp cover.



Step 10: Space the glass coins out in different places on all three wires. To anchor a glass coin, use micro crimping pliers to secure 1 micro crimp tube on each end of the glass coin. Repeat for all the glass coins.
