Instructions

Finished Size: 17 1/2"

Step 1:
Use the head pin to string 1 small pearl, 1 crystal ring, and 1 small pearl. Form a wire wrapped loop. Use the jump ring to attach the loop to the wood pendant.



Step 2: Use 17" of 24K Gold wire to string 1 crimp tube and the ring used in Step 1, making sure to string the ring to the right of the head pin. Adjust the wire so that the ring is 6" from one end of the wire and pass back through the crimp tube. Snug the crimp tube to the crystal ring, and crimp. Cover the crimp tube with 1 crimp cover. Use one end of the wire to string 1 small pearl. Use the other end of the wire to string 1 large pearl. Use both wire ends to string 1 crystal ring. Use one end of the wire to string 1 small pearl. Use the other end of the wire to string 1 large pearl. Use both wire ends to string 1 crimp tube. Adjust the crimp tube so that it is 3 3/4" from the previous crimp tube, and crimp. Trim the short end of the wire. Do not cut the long end of the wire.

Step 3: Use the long end of the wire to string 1 large pearl, 1 crimp tube, 1 small pearl, 1 crimp tube, 1 large pearl, 1 crimp tube, and 1 small pearl. Place a Bead Stopper on the end of the wire. Adjust the first crimp tube strung in this step so that it is 3/4" from the previous crimp tube, and crimp. Adjust the next crimp tube from this step so that it is 7/8" from the previous crimp tube, and crimp. Adjust the last crimp tube so that it is 7/8" from the previous tube, and crimp. Cover all three crimp tubes with crimp covers.

Step 4: Use 17" of Garnet wire to string 1 crimp tube and the ring used in Step 1, placing the wire above the 24K Gold wire. Adjust the wire so that the ring is 6" from one end of the wire and pass back through the crimp tube. Snug the crimp tube to the crystal ring, and crimp. Cover the crimp tube with 1 crimp cover. Use one end of the wire to string 1 small crystal round. Use the other end of the wire to string 1 large crystal round. Use both wire ends to pass through the crystal ring used in Step 2. Use one end of the wire to string 1 small crystal round. Use the other end of the wire to string 1 large crystal round. Use both wire ends to string 1 crimp tube. Adjust the crimp tube so that it is 3 3/4" from the previous crimp tube, and crimp. Trim the short end of the wire. Do not cut the long end.




Step 5: Use the long end of the wire to string 1 large crystal round, 1 crimp tube, 1 small crystal round, 1 crimp tube, 1 large crystal round, 1 crimp tube, and 1 small crystal round. Place a Bead Stopper on the end of the wire. Adjust the first crimp tube strung in this step so that it is 3/4" from the previous crimp tube, and crimp. Adjust the next crimp tube from this step so that it is 7/8" from the previous crimp tube, and crimp. Adjust the last crimp tube so that it is 7/8" from the previous tube, and crimp. Cover all three crimp tubes with crimp covers.

Step 6: Repeat Steps 4 and 5, placing the wire below the 24K Gold wire.

Step 7: Remove the Bead Stoppers. Use all three wire ends to string 1 crimp tube. Adjust the wires so that the tube is between 1 1/2 and 1 7/8" from the previous crimp tubes on all three wires, and crimp. Trim both Garnet wire ends. Do not cut the 24K Gold wire end. Cover the crimp tube with 1 crimp cover. Use the 24K Gold wire to string 1 crimp tube and one half of the clasp. Pass back through the tube and crimp. Cover the crimp tube with 1 crimp cover.

Step 8: Repeat Steps 2-7 for the other half of the necklace.
