Project Instructions

Necklace:

Make your shape dangles by cutting seven pieces of memory wire 5 inches long. Use your needle nose pliers to make a small loop at one end.  

String on 10 6MM crystals. Trim with cutters to make a small loop at the other end. Repeat this again with another wire.  

Bend one piece into a triangle. Bend the other piece into a circle. Use a 4MM jump ring through the eye loops to close the shapes together. 

String 14 6MM crystals on a piece of memory wire and finish with loop. Bend this into an oval. Use jump ring to close. 

For the 4MM crystal shapes use the above techniques to make four dangles. Use 19 crystals to make a off balance triangle, 21 crystals to make a triangle, 17 crystals to make an oval or triangle, and 13 crystals to make a circle. Use jumps rings to close. 

Add another 4MM jump ring to each shape and close securely. 

Cut chain in half. 

Use a crimp bead to attach stringing wire to the chain by slipping the wire through the crimp, then through the end of the chain and back through the crimp. Pull close to end and collapse the crimp with chain nose pliers and trim. 

String on 12 4MM crystals. Next string on one shape dangle and three 4 MM crystals. Repeat this until the last shape is on. Add 12 crystals to finish. 

Repeat step 7 with the other piece of chain after pulling the crystals and dangles snugly. 

Use a 4MM jump ring to attach the lobster claw to one end. Use a 6MM jump ring for the other end. 

Earrings:

Cut the stringing wire in half.  

Slip one end through a crimp bead and then through a jump ring and back through the crimp bead. Pull close to the end and use your pliers to collapse the bead tightly. Trim wire. 

String on 15 crystals.

Repeat step 2 to finish.

Open ear wire and attach to the jump ring.

 

Tips

Once you have your shape dangles for your necklace, lay them out in the order you want to string them. Use the largest in the middle.
